About This Workshop

Since 2008, our company has had success with 88% of students enrolled in our Character Development & Career Readiness programs. Throughout Arizona, Illinois, Minnesota and Virginia we've produced student-success across CTE, Math, Science & ELA courses - in the midst of handling students personal trials, hardships and an overall disengagement in school.

By consistently experiencing guidance-based practices not focused on in many classroom settings, our students have:

1. Successfully graduated from secondary school.

2. Transitioned into post-secondary programs (including the military) and...

3. Obtained careers commensurate with their education and skill set.

"THE ART OF MOTIVATING STUDENTS TO WANT TO LEARN" is a "deep dive" workshop into the classroom. It is designed to teach-teachers the competencies we use with students nationally, helping them recognize the diverse cultural characteristics of students from different ethnic backgrounds. This workshop also develops teachers instructional strategies across diverse socioeconomic statuses and adjust teaching methods to account for these differences. Teachers will be provided tools to improve rapport building with students, more effectively manage their classrooms and motivate students to want to learn!

How Do We Measure Workshop Effectiveness?

This IS NOT a "one and done" training. All participants are supported post-workshop and will receive complimentary:
1. Access to "The Art of Motivating Students" Edmodo Learning Community.

2. Webinars to expand on workshop content, implementation, effectiveness, partnering industry directly to CTE classes and more.

3. A subscription to our Monthly Newsletter.

4. Advisory period content (suggested activities for Character Development & Educational suucess).


How can the competencies taught in this workshop motivate my students to want to learn and succeed?

Through years of instruction and research, we've learned students who 'see themselves' in their
instructors (and vice-versa), perform better than students who attend school to simply be instructed. Cultural inclusion, sensitivity (Restorative Justice practices) and creative standards-based instruction leads to the positive cultural climate many schools are seeking. We specialize in this area - and have generated great data over the past decade!
