Presentation:  “There’s Nothing Wrong With Me…. I Just Don’t Learn the Way You Teach!”

Description

Too many brilliant children are often overlooked academically because time wasn’t taken to discover how they process new information, make sense out of new information, think, and learn. Consequently, they quickly become bored in school and in far too many cases, become behavioral challenges or candidates for Special Education. In this highly-engaging, self-reflective workshop, Principal Kafele will take teachers on an introspective journey of reflecting upon their current instructional practices toward engaging all of their learners while simultaneously discerning their current levels of effectiveness. He will also engage teachers in a self-assessment of how cultural responsiveness and equity factor into their instruction, and how they go about planning and organizing toward addressing all of learning styles in their classrooms.

Purpose

The purpose of this workshop is to highlight for teachers that the learning styles of students must always be taken into consideration.

Objective

Teachers will be able to take the information and strategies attained and immediately apply in their respective classrooms toward ensuring that their pedagogy matches the learning styles of their individual students.
