 Appleton North High School
                                      Welcome, Colleagues!
The Christa McAuliffe Academy seeks to promote student achievement through the professional staff
development of PreK-12 educators in all subject areas. Hands-on learning is emphasized to help teachers
engage students in collaborative problem solving and higher order thinking. From the courses described
teachers select one course to which they will devote their week’s study.
The Academy also promotes world of work relevance through business tours. On Wednesday morning,
July 18th, participants have an opportunity to tour two businesses and observe how learning is applied in
the world of work. Time is spent talking with business and industry representatives to learn ways to lead
students to skills and experiences that will better prepare them for the world outside the classroom.
The Christa McAuliffe Academy is a collaborative effort of the Fox Cities Alliance for
Education, a division of the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Inc., University of Wisconsin-
Oshkosh and local school districts.

       Changing The World’s Next Decade with Technology
Technology rate of change is compounding annually and that means the next ten years should pack

schools. Greg Huza will highlight the top technologies that people predict will heavily impact our
lives or possibly change the world we live in during the next 10 years!
