Managing the Inner World of Teaching
Expand your ability to maintain a positive mindset in the classroom by cultivating a deeper awareness of your emotions, interpretations, and responses as a teacher. In this workshop, Robert J. Marzano and Jana S. Marzano combine their backgrounds in educational research and psychotherapy to present a comprehensive model of how the human mind operates. The heart of that model involves three dynamic processes: (1) our emotional responses, (2) our interpretations, and (3) our actions. Each of those processes affects the moment-by-moment decisions that teachers make in the classroom.
Beyond classroom management, this workshop is designed to help teachers achieve a broader view of curriculum, instruction, and assessment and to approach their lives outside the classroom with greater understanding and mindfulness. This workshop is ideal for teachers who want to understand how their inner world influences their actions and how slight adjustments to their mental preparation and strategies can have long-term effects on their teaching and overall satisfaction.Request information
