The current structure of the educational system values academic intelligence which does not mean that only a sub-set of our students who easily excel in this area are worth our time or are worthy of success in school.
Discovering, celebrating and leveraging the unique strengths in all children allows them to become their best selves. While this includes academic success and achievement, it goes so much further.
Creative lessons that include physical exercises, art, drama and more can capture students’ interest so well because they evoke their senses in a strong way. In this presentation we pose the questions of how can we create lessons in math, Spanish, writing, or world history that do just this? This interactive, fun and thought provoking session will explore what we can do to encourage all children to be their very best.
