Practical Ideas and Strategies

When do your students do the most amazing things? When you empower students and give them an opportunity to make a positive impact on something they love in something that is real. Todd Babiasz has created a unique instructional style, Positive Impact Based Learning, to inspire and help you insert into your curriculum a mindset and strategies that break down the walls between school and real life.

You will be presented with real life examples, specifically created for grades 7-12, from Todd’s classroom experience on what student empowerment is, what it look like, and how it changes students’ view of school. Participants will also have time to begin examining and implementing these strategies into their current curriculum and lesson plans,

You will leave this seminar renewed, excited, and looking at your curriculum in a whole different way. You will discover how to blur the lines between real life and school, create a dynamic and excited classroom environment, and see your students come alive through taking action and making positive change!
