What Every Teacher Should Know About Today’s Diverse Learners

This course will provide teachers of any grade level and discipline with realistic information, strategies, and practices related to teaching students today, emphasizing the Children First Core principle of accountability.  Read more

Increasing Leadership Capacity Through Interpersonal Skills
Keeping in mind the Children First principle that states, “Those closest to the students should make the key decisions about what will best help students succeed”, teachers are increasingly called upon to initiate and support school change efforts not only in their classrooms but also in the larger school community by becoming effective teacher leaders.

What Every Teacher Should Know About the Brain and Learning
Jensen (1997, 2007) says that, “While the old academic model addressed primarily the intellectual aspects of learning, the prevailing model suggests that we learn with our mind, heart and body.  This more holistic view underscores the importance of considering all of the learner’s issues.”  Participants will look at the factors that identify being smart and the factors that label us as slow learners or overachievers. Participants will look at the factors that help students take in information at a more efficient rate and the factors that help students to retrieve information from long-term memory.
