Our high school teachers will attend a series of sessions to kick off the 2017-18 school year. We will learn about best practices in core content areas and teachers will present new resources for teacher to use this year - including Nepris.
We want to showcase an expert in the field of education AND motivate teachers to try new resources.
We need an engaging expert!
What is your personal experience with teens in public education?
How are teens unique in their cognitive and affective needs?
What are some specific strategies or techniques you recommend when working with teens who are resistant to learning?
How can teachers capitalize on success to promote a positive dynamic in the classroom and school?
How can teachers overcome setbacks and pressures that accompany their profession (pressure from politicians, stress on testing, negative community perceptions of public education, internalizing students' struggles with home/ poverty)?
How can teachers promote leadership in their students through day-to-day instruction?
How can teachers model positive leadership through day-to-day instruction?
How can teachers balance their instruction to meet the cognitive and affective needs of teens while also promoting personal responsibility for learning and progress in their students?
How can administrators and staff address the needs and goals described above?
How can teachers engage community members and parents to promote a positive school dynamic?
To engage teachers in every field (English, math, science, social studies, physical education, music, art, engineering, special education), we would like to see the potential a Nepris expert can offer.
The expert should explain his or her authority on our topic (grit in the field of public education).
The expert should demonstrate how to engage a reluctant or resistant audience (in this case, teachers!) by using the rhetorical strategies of a motivating, inspirational speaker.
The expert should offer strategies for relating to teens, helping teens see connections between academic subjects and the real world, and speak to the particular needs of teen learners by addressing the cognitive development of teens.
Leaving honest feedback and rating gives members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with other members. Leaving Feedback is also a way to express your appreciation for a session well done.
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
