4 Elements for Engaging Students of Color

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many teachers suffer from high levels of stress and low levels of motivation as they struggle to help their minority students reach their full potential, never finding the solution to truly help their students or themselves. This workshop addresses major concerns for educators, particularly as it relates to the engagement and learning of students of color in urban and culturally diverse schools. This workshop will teach the instructional strategies that put teachers in a position to transform learning objectives that students perceive as mundane or boring, into genuinely interesting and engaging experiences by making learning culturally relevant.

The goal is to teach these strategies, as well as highlight how these ideas, when combined with other specific tactics directly correlate to better self-care and authentic enjoyment of the profession. Educators will be engaged using games, thought-provoking activities, and role-playing exercises to demonstrate the application of concepts. Teachers will leave with the skills necessary to create engaging, next-level, cosmic experiences for their students. Teachers will see that these strategies can fundamentally change classrooms in ways that will make teaching more enjoyable, meaningful, and most importantly promote higher student achievement.
