~*Building on What Children Bring: Identifying Students' Strengths to Differentiate Instruction (K-6) - Virtual - 3:30-5:30

When students struggle, we often jump into fix-it mode. We label students as low-achieving, below grade level, or deficient. This workshop will engage educators in shifting that lens to a more asset-based approach. How can we begin to see students' strengths, and how can we leverage those strengths to address students' needs. A variety of videos and student work samples will be used to engage participants in truly seeing the strength in all children as we work to ensure they experience success in our classrooms. Presented by Ryan Flessner.


This workshop is Title III and Title IV Eligible!
