Workshop 2H: Spencer James McGil: “How to Talk and Listen so Kids can Learn”

Feedback form is now closed.

When teachers talk to students, we have the tendancy to unintentionally forget the place where they are coming from and to dismiss students' emotions. We need to rethink the ways to talk and listen so our students can learn. This presentation will get you in to the mental state of many of our students, talk about why students' emotions are the first thing we must consider, why they are so important, and offer ways that allow teachers to show students that their emotions are valued. This session will look at different approaches to dealing with problems in the classroom that invite cooperation and respect the things that students are feeling. Attending this session will give you skills that you can use immediately to know what NOT to do or say,  understand where students are coming from, relate to your students, diffuse situations and discipline students. The skills you learn have the real potential to make your students better problem solvers as well as happier people later in life.
