How might we help each other learn, lead, and be better?
As teachers, you are expected to constantly give feedback on your students’ performance. Just as important, you benefit greatly by giving and receiving assessments. There is strong evidence that when teachers trust each other’s motives to be supportive while giving assessments to make each other better, the quality of all teachers increases rapidly.

Marsha is an educational entrepreneur, teacher, and writer.
In 1990 she founded the Council Oak Montessori School in Chicago, which serves children ages 3 to 14. She was school head for 27 years.
Marsha has published a wide variety of articles in places such as Real Clear Markets, The New Individualist, and Objectivity. These include research papers concerned with psychology, neuropsychology, philosophy, and esthetics, such “Montessori: The Liberator of Children,” “The Habit of Hope” and “The Evolutionary Neuropsychology of Music.” She has also written cultural commentary and literary reviews, such as “Capitalism: the Crucial Protector of the Smallest Minority,” and “Cameron Hawley and the Romance of Business,” available at marsha-familaro-enright.com.
In 2005 she founded the Reason, Individualism, Freedom Institute (RIFI) to develop a new college, using an innovative curriculum and methods. The methods are derived from Montessori principles applied to adults and optimal learning research, with an emphasis on excellent reasoning, writing, and applying knowledge to practical action. The content uses the Great Books and important modern works, especially in science and the freedom movement. Its aim is to develop deeply informed graduates capable of thinking for themselves and putting thought into action to live as free persons.
For 12 years, RIFI sponsored weekend and weeklong seminars using these principles and content, resulting in astounding transformations for its students. Now, we are working to open the College itself, called Reliance College. www.reliancecollege.org.
This workshop is designed for teachers who want to learn how to give and receive assessments as well as promote a culture of feedback to improve their work and become better learners and leaders.
