Professional Development

Bring Danny Hill to your school or district!

Hear Danny clearly articulate the Power of ICU formula:

Assignment Completion + Quality Assignments + Healthy Grading Practices = Student Success

Teachers will be understandably skeptical during the Assignment Completion portion when he speaks confidently about getting all students to complete all assignments. Many are thinking, “But Danny, you don’t know some of our students.” The session will focus on the powerful how and why the Power of ICU’s unique approach works. Danny believes teacher paradigm is the key to successful implementation and will adjust the pacing of the presentation if teachers need more explanation. Challenging the traditional paradigm and “status quo” with powerful analogies and common sense is his strength.


We now have overwhelming evidence that poor assignments/assessments and unhealthy grading practices demotivate many students and contribute to high failure rates. Every student completes every quality assignment in a Power of ICU school and student success is rampant. Take the first step in success by bringing Danny Hill to your campus.
