Who: Created and taught by Chris Holmes, the 2014 Missouri Teacher of the Year and Community Classroom Academic Coach
The description: We’ve all faced students who possess the cognitive abilities to succeed academically, but whose lack of engagement, motivation, or perseverance hold them back. There is no panacea for this, no simple answer to what looks like apathy. But with a better understanding of adolescent development, especially from neurological and psychological perspectives – combined with the voices of teenagers themselves – we can maximize our opportunities to reach, teach, and transform these students.
Registration: Registration is available here through Eventbrite, with limited in-person tickets available. Tickets are free to current Community Classroom tutors and coaches. We are asking other participants to Pay-What-You-Can.
