All secondary teachers are invited to a screening of the award-winning documentary “Most Likely to Succeed” at the HISD Transformation Summit on Feb. 6 at Chavez High School. After viewing the film, which follows students and educators at High Tech High School in California and their work to re-invent school, HISD teachers will join their content-area colleagues to discuss implications of the film for their content area and plan for transformational instruction in upcoming grading cycles. Afterwards, participants will take part in choice learning sessions on various topics including the HUB and project based learning.
