A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Why is school boring? This is one of the questions I found myself asking after hearing it so many times from students. With all the demands educators currently face, how do we ensure that we are not “boring” and engage even the most distracted, inattentive student? As classroom teacher, administrator, and instructional coach, I have worked with a diverse range of students to implement the most effective strategies that reach even the most inattentive, unmotivated and apathetic students.

I have designed this interactive hands-on seminar to share the most effective strategies I have found for more deeply engaging distracted, inattentive and unmotivated students. I will share proven strategies that incorporate mindfulness strategies and activities to better focus students' attention, regulate emotions and reduce anxiety that can cause challenging and disruptive behaviors. In addition, I will share very practical ways growth mindset, inquiry, and a multitude of highly effective motivational teaching tools can increase engagement and responsibility among even your most unmotivated and inattentive students. Whether you are teaching in-person, 100% online or in a hybrid learning environment, you'll leave with numerous proven ideas you can use immediately.

I look forward to meeting you online at the seminar.

Sincerely,
Jessica Gruttola

P.S. My focus for our day together will be to share with you practical, classroom proven strategies that you can implement right away.
