Practical Ideas and Strategies

Have you ever wondered what your classroom would be like if all your students were self-disciplined individuals who got started quickly, stayed on task and persevered in the pursuit of their goals? Can you imagine what you could accomplish if your students all knew and acted on the belief that it is their own personal effort that determines success? What if your students saw a direct link between their desired future and the behavior and attitude choices they are making today? What if your students simply had a positive academic mind set? Would that kind of student attitudes and beliefs increase academic learning as well as promote self-regulating skills? Chick Moorman, a national recognized expert on adult to student relationships has designed this seminar to provide practical solutions and answers to those questions and more.

In this fast-paced, skill-oriented seminar, Chick will share important techniques and teaching strategies to help students improve attitudes and beliefs that foster self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making. You will learn a wide variety of strategies to utilize with students, which will decrease incidents of aggression, bullying and other behavior problems. You’ll learn successful strategies to help your students move toward increased respect, responsibility and self-regulation. You will gain insightful strategies for helping your students develop perseverance even when things don’t go their way or have less than an initial positive outcome. Armed with an extensive resource handbook, you will leave this seminar with new skills to help your students be more successful.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

What is important for students to know and be able to put to use in their lives when they graduate from high school? I suspect that we can all agree that math, reading, writing, and computer literacy are important. So are mastery and understanding in the arts, science, history, physical fitness, and foreign languages. Yes, academic proficiency is and needs to remain a major thrust of our efforts from kindergarten to graduation.

In addition, there is another deeper level of learning that cannot be ignored if our desire is to produce successful young people. It is a curriculum built not around subjects, but rather around core concepts such as diversity, honesty, responsibility, inner knowing, solution seeking, self-discipline, perseverance, and personal power. This important strand of education is concerned with developing self-directed learners who become responsible for their own learning. It includes learning interpersonal skills to work with others effectively, creating goals and persevering through to attainment, learning how to take appropriate risks and bounce back from mistakes, understanding the relationship between effort and success and becoming personally responsible for the outcomes you create in your own life.

Social-emotional learning strengthens our efforts to produce academic learning. The work habits of getting started quickly, focusing, staying on task, persevering, revising and improving, becoming self-directed and self-motivated go hand in hand with all academic content and are appropriate for all grade levels.

I guarantee you will leave this seminar with many practical strategies that you can put to use in your classroom immediately. In a short amount of time you will be telling others, “This stuff works!” If you are looking for a new spark, a collection of helpful strategies, or a pat on the back, I invite you to join me at this seminar. I look forward to meeting and sharing this material with you.

Warmly,
Chick Moorman

P.S. If you could transform the life of just one student this year your time will have been well spent. Invest a day with me and together we can make a real difference in the lives of your students.
