Students Centered Pedagogy is a strength-based approach to meeting all students’ needs within the constructs in any classroom. The emphasis is on learning over teaching. In the student-centered classroom, the student literally becomes the center of all the learning experiences derived within and through the classroom environment. Keeping the emphasis on student learning is the best way to ensure effective learning outcomes. The strategies we will explore will help attendees create a more student-centered approach to honing innovative educational practices. In this session we will delve into the strengths-based approach of creating and maintaining a student-centered approach to all classroom educational practices.

“If you understand that the problems children cause or the challenging behaviors we see in our schools are often times the evidence and result of experiences they are unable to interpret and process with maturity, then you don’t want to miss The Resilient Teacher workshop! Our focus is on the strengthening of “ADULT” character traits, communication skills and strategies that can be applied across all school-based relationships that will promote positive behavior in the school environment. This session will particularly benefit classroom teachers, interventionist, administrators, counselors, support professionals, safety/discipline teams, classified staff (i.e security, bus drivers, cafeteria, etc.), mentors, parents and all ADULTs to be “responsibly” engaged in a proven practice of relationships and communication principles that help children and youth develop the necessary skills to overcome and manage life circumstances that may get in the way of positive behavior choices.”
