As an educator, you know what you want for your students. You want them to seek out challenges, ask for help, resist distractions, and see mistakes as chances to try again. In other words, you want kids to be self-regulated learners. Self-regulation for learning (SRL) is the ability to effectively balance affect (how you feel), behaviors (what you do), and cognition (how you think) to pursue worthy academic goals. Teaching students to balance these three elements builds motivation, resilience, and college and career readiness.
In this webinar, Dr. Richard Cash, Ed.D. will discuss doable, evidence-based practices to help students engage in learning, build confidence, set and manage goals, develop habits of thinking, do effective home study, and reflect on their learning. Dr. Cash will share real stories of students who achieved success through SRL skills; he’ll also provide a framework for both classroom practices and school-wide implementation. Discover how schools have used this whole-child approach to assisting students in gaining greater social/emotional well-being, developing scholarly behaviors, and acquiring valuable thinking tools to be successful in school and beyond.
This webinar will benefit K-12 teachers, counselors, administrators, social workers, and special and gifted education professionals.
