Event Description

Must-Have Tips for the Classroom

If your students are nodding off, staying silent, or scoring poorly on tests, it may be time to ramp up your delivery tactics. When students can’t comprehend their class materials it’s a no-win situation for everyone, but there are simple strategies—real, concrete, and interactive—that you can use to improve student performance immediately.

To prevent the ongoing decline of student comprehension and improve retention of information, join us for this dynamic session taught by Laura Porreca, the go-to expert in knowledge transfer! Porreca will show you how to improve reading comprehension, writing ability, and test scores, and captivate students with better engagement and knowledge transfer. She will help you regain your influence and reignite a love of learning in the classroom. And she will show you the secrets to develop the capable student you’ve always wanted.

This instructive session will teach you discussion techniques to boost participation and collaboration—including “accountable talk” and its impact on student achievement. Plus, you’ll learn how to use reflection and self-evaluation as teaching tools. You’ll learn how to turn boring lectures into dynamic discussions. Whether your classrooms are virtual or live, you’ll discover how to empower students to process information, become better writers, and show increased performance on exams – long after they have left your class. They will have new skills to become lifelong learners, and you will have peace of mind!
