Healing a Brain Exposed to Trauma | Tuesday, October 30 | 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Trauma and its impact on brain growth and development is powerful. This session focuses on understanding the effects of trauma on the developing brain. Understand the wisdom of the reflex patterns in protecting the body and their influence on learning. Stress has the power to wire and rewire the brain. Learn three specific techniques used to help students learn when they have shut down after being exposed to trauma, and to set students up to be successful learners by integrating the brain and fostering healthy brain growth factors.

Three Secrets of Behavior Management | Tuesday, October 30 | 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM
Learn how to teach students to manger their own behavior and how to talk with students to help them develop their thinking and problem-solving skills. This session identifies the necessity of setting external boundaries to enable students to set their internal boundaries. Teaching students how to be in tune to themselves and understanding that they are not their feelings is key to self-management.

Kim Strobel

Growth Mindset | Tuesday, October 30 | 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
This workshop will help teachers implement a growth mindset curriculum, which has been proven to lead to greater motivation levels and higher achievement for students, in their classrooms. Through experiential and interactive activities, you’ll learn strategies to increase you own growth mindset as an educator, as well as how to develop and integrate the growth mindset philosophy in the classroom.

Genius Hour | Tuesday, October 30 | 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

Genius Hour is taking the education world by storm! It’s a movement that allows our students to explore their own passions and interests and encourages creativity in the classroom by providing students a choice in what they learn during a set period of the school week. The Genius Hour concept is based on one of Google’s practices: they encourage that 20% of their employees’ work week be spent researching, investigating, and exploring a topic or passion of personal interest, one that is not directly tied to their job description but in line with the mission of the company. As a result, they’ve found that 50% of their best ideas come from that 20% of independent work. It is our job as educators to encourage critical thinking and inspire creativity – skills that are needed for the 21st century learner. Learners come alive in Genius Hour, motivation levels skyrocket, and students are completely engaged.
