Vose Library’s Virtual Wednesday Series will host Gary Chapin and Carisa Corrow, Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 7 p.m., via Zoom as the authors discuss their co-creation of the book: 126 Falsehoods We Believe About Education.
Gary Chapin has been working in education since 2000, first as a teacher (9th grade social studies in Central Maine), then as a curriculum director, then as a Department of Education researcher, and most recently, for nearly ten years, as a consultant, advocate and supporter of equity based practices such as competency-based learning, performance assessment, adaptive leadership, and collaborative cultures.

He is deeply fascinated by questions like: What should kids learn? How do we decide what kids should learn? How do we learn what they learned? How can learning what they learned help them learn more? Also: systems! 

Carisa Corrow spent fourteen years as a public-school teacher in New Hampshire before becoming a consultant with the Center for Collaborative Education working with educators to examine their learning and assessment systems. In 2020, she started Educating for Good with a mission to help schools create systems that work for learners and the community with the ultimate vision for a just and equitable world.

Corrow is actively involved in Concord Showing Up for Racial Justice, volunteers at the soup kitchen and tutors. She lives with her husband, who is also an educator, and their three children on stolen Abenaki land in Penacook, New Hampshire.
