  • Outstanding Classroom – Validate and Empower

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Educational

    The Workshop is an intense participatory in-service designed to elevate attentiveness and comprehension in the classroom. In a career encompassing urban and private venues, I reveal methods that arouse the brain's reward circuitry to incentivize teachers and students, amplify recall, and foster inquiry and analysis. It is held at the school and adjusted to accommodate your time window. MORE >

    Teachers and/or students partake in a forum that reinforces that circuitry through validation and empowerment. As head class counselor I developed leadership retreats for students and teachers that incorporated interactive exercises and challenges. By witnessing amplified enthusiasm, I altered my classroom pedagogy in an analogous manner, giving students a more prominent role as facilitators and leaders.

    In this context, the Workshop will have teachers and students perform tasks that reinforce personal validation and serve as a model for their lesson plans and learning.

    By partaking in this workshop classrooms will be transformed:
    1. Individuals will be affirmed as intelligent and valued individuals.
    2. Individuals will gain a sense of empowerment and take responsibility for the knowledge flow.

    In addition, teachers and students will be instructed on how positive interdependence enables individuals to succeed through goal setting and cooperation. Furthermore, the use of scripts will reveal how constructive verbalization leads to camaraderie and drive, creating a sense of ownership of the content area, as well as reduce discipline issues. A critical element is that the validation is peer driven, the most important source of affirmation amongst children and teens.

    It will be an empowering experience, impacting learning, and hopefully give everyone the same pleasure and esteem I derived by validating students as respected learners and personalities in the social media-crazed world.
