CUE Palm Springs, March 5-7 '09

The theme for the March 5-7 CUE conference in Palm Springs is "Driving Student Success." I'm looking forward to hearing the Keynote speaker, Dr. Robert Marzano, and attending many of the great sessions that will be offered. See for yourself at

I will present a session on the free 3D animiation program, Alice - and how teachers can learn to use the program along with their students, as students work through a tutorial on critical thinking. The tutorial can be re-vamped to use with any grade level, 4-12, in any subject that has a controversial issue. For a download of the PowerPoint and handouts I will use in the session, see the links on
