Rebels with Applause: Brain Compatible Approaches for Motivating Reluctant Learners

Thursday, June 21, 2018

9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

This full-day training on brain-compatible instructional design and engagement strategies for motivating reluctant learners is an interactive workshop that addresses the common issues that arise when working with under-motivated students who seem to have the hardest time paying attention and getting work done. The training will give dozens of practical “brain-based” strategies that teachers can use to help get “rebel” students of varying abilities and learning styles involved and motivated, and help them retain more. The content will focus on the 21st century skills of collaboration, communication, comprehension, and creativity.

In this training participants will learn how to:

  • Get and maintain the attention of all students
  • Break up direct instruction and increase retention of key information and concepts
  • Actively engage students regardless of special needs or language barriers
  • Increase participation in a diverse classroom
  • Differentiate instruction to support the learning of all students
  • Use current research in neuroscience to make strategic instructional decisions
