On Wednesday and Thursday, July 27–28th, 2022, the Office of the Under Secretary for Education hosted its annual National Education Summit!
This year's theme was: “Together We Thrive: Creating Our Shared Future through Education,” acknowledging that given the right conditions and resources, all children can thrive. PreK-12 educators, librarians, media specialists, and policymakers nationwide participated in sessions exploring: Innovative lesson design for English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Visual Arts, and Civics Methods to cultivate social-emotional learning, inquiry-based learning, and youth creativity Insights from teachers and Smithsonian educators on instructional tools and resources to enhance learning.
