MAKE YOUR CLASSROOM ACTUALLY STUDENT CENTERED BY GETTING STUDENTS TO DO MORE OF THE TALKING
WORKSHOP with Mandy Rice
You've been doing the work and making the changes to shift the focus from you inside of your classroom to your students. YES - student centered is where it's at!
You have all these high expectations for how amazing your classroom culture will be, and then you roll it out with students and.... crickets. It's like PULLING TEETH to get them to talk.
What Student Voice is in a student centered classroom.
The immense NEED for quality, skillful conversations among students today who would rather text or Snapchat.
The intentional PROCESS of getting students to talk more, including setting the tone, creating routines, building their confidence, and proudly releasing them into the world.
Each attendee will get a pdf guide after the workshop as well as effective strategies and materials to help in this process of building student voice.
Yep, even if you don't think you have the time to increase student voices in your classroom (we'll talk about that in the training), this is a space where you can be reassured of the advantages.
Uh-huh, even if you've got students who are terrified of talking to another human being, we're going to cover ways to meet them where they are.
Because teaching your students the skill of having quality, level-headed conversations is a life skill in short supply today, and it's our job as their teacher to meet them where there's an immense need.
That sounds so silly, and I'm kind of laughing as I write this, but seriously... they just weren't great at speaking up in the first (they lacked the confidence too), and then when they did speak up, they weren't that great at it.
This is what you call the hidden curriculum for "soft" skills, am I right?!? Well, you don't have to look too far today to realize that having civil conversations with one another is in short supply.
So let's put our heads together, and let's raise up this generation to be level-headed, and able to communicate in the most simple forms.
