1. Expecting and Getting the Best from Your Students!

Program: Classroom Practices

Audience: Grades K-12 Teachers and Administrators

Dates: 10/23/2017

Starting Today
Overview:

What are the characteristics of high expectations teaching?

How do we help students have the confidence that they already have enough brain power to do demanding work?

How do we teach them the strategies for exerting effective effort?

In the past few years there has been a lot of productive conversations around mindset and messaging belief in students. We also know that talking about growth mindset and effort is not enough. This workshop will focus on operationalizing those conversations on a daily basis. We make many correct decisions every day in the classroom. However, sometimes our daily habits and decisions are not messaging belief on a consistent basis. We will use the lens of high expectations teaching to reflect on our own practice and to build our repertoire of strategies that impact students’ beliefs and actions.

Outcomes:

- Describe daily verbal behaviors and teacher choice of language that positively impact students’ belief in themselves and students’ ownership of their own learning

- Explain daily instructional strategies for clarity of learning and clarity of criteria for student success

- Describe how we explicitly teach students effective effort behaviors

- Identify focus areas for your own classroom practice

** RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITE: Focus on Effective Teaching **
