Breakout Sessions
  • Building and Sustaining Empathic Relationships in the Elementary Classroom

Research suggests that teachers’ and students’ interactions and relationships can have a long-lasting effect on students’ motivation, behavior in class, attitudes toward school, and success beyond the classroom. This workshop will explore ways that Elementary School teachers can support students through building and sustaining empathic relationships.

 

  • Building and Sustaining Empathic Relationships in the Secondary Classroom

Research suggests that how teachers and students interact and the relationships between students and teachers, especially during the critical period of middle and high school, can have a long-lasting effect on students’ motivation, behavior in class, their attitudes toward school, and success beyond the classroom. This workshop will explore ways that Secondary School teachers can support students through building and sustaining empathic relationships.

 

  • Building and Sustaining Empathic Relationships through School Leadership

Research suggests that teachers’ and students’ interactions and relationships can have a long-lasting effect on students’ motivation, behavior in class, attitudes toward school, and success beyond the classroom. This workshop will explore ways that school leaders can build and sustain empathic relationships with students and coaching staff to do the same.

 

  • Building and Sustaining Empathic Relationships Beyond the School

Research suggests that teachers’ and students’ interactions and relationships can have a long-lasting effect on students’ motivation, behavior in class, attitudes toward school, and success beyond the classroom. This workshop will explore ways to build and sustain empathic relationships with students beyond the classroom and school setting, and in particular, is geared towards educators, counselors, coaches, and support staff working with students who have experienced a heightened level of traumatic experiences.

 

  • Sparking Interest in Elementary School Students 

What happens—in your brain and body—when you’re genuinely interested in what you’re doing? On the flip side: what happens when you’re bored to tears? Where do interests come from and why is sampling a variety of activities—both in and out of the classroom—so important? This workshop explores these questions and suggests exercises for sparking interest in elementary school students and teachers.
