SEAM - Student Engagement and Motivation workshop
Location:
KEDC- LEX
July 23, 2019 - 8:30am to 3:30pm

  

Program Description

My strategies help you build student motivation which in turn increases student participation. Fun, engaging lessons are at the heart of building a classroom that has participation from all students. We also introduce methods for creating an inquisitive classroom, where students are free to question the material and explore the curricula in greater depth. By honoring student voice, giving them more opportunities to respond to instruction and presenting the material in several modes and intelligences of learning, we greatly increase the chances our students will discover more ways of learning. If we teach to their strengths and help them overcome their weaker areas, they will have more tools for their own learning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

 

Objectives of program

Teachers will know... ...practical methods to build interest with students ...how to motivate the unmotivated ...how to use Storytelling for Project-Based Learning ...how to grab and keep student interest ...how to incorporate fun and divergent ways of learning ...how to develop critical thinking in the student’s approach to learning ...how this can be modified for all kids and communities ...how to become real to their students ...how to use human graphing to get immediate feedback from students ...how to quickly assess how effective their lesson is going
