Event description

Description

What's the best way to motivate students to own their education, learn deeply and durably, and develop resilience? Research has shown that the key to all these things is intrinsic motivation, or motivation that comes from within. Jessica Lahey, national keynote speaker and author of Gift of Failure - How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed, summarizes the current research on autonomy-supportive parenting and teaching, competence, rewards, praise, and failure. Finally, she explains how parents and educators can give students the support and encouragement they need in order to stay motivated over the long term.

Free for PTSA members in the Issaquah School District. For non-members, requested donation of $20 online or at the door.

For parents of grades K-12.
