At the annual 2012 NACTA Conference held in River Falls at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Bonnie Walters gave the Blue Ribbon presentation - "Why? Who Cares?"
What happens when a student interrupts your class with such a simple question as "Why?" or "Who cares?" Are these questions relevant and important? What can you do? What should you do? Dr. Walters addresses these questions in her Blue Ribbon address to the 2012 NACTA Conference participants. The PowerPoint she used in her presentation is attached to the bottom of this announcement. Please feel free to download and view it.
