To truly flourish during a school year already filled with unique challenges, our students need intrinsic motivation to learn and grow. Understanding how that learning connects to the future can help.
Students want to better understand themselves, their goals for the future, and how to get there. But they can’t do that without guidance for setting goals, taking initiative, and even practicing better time management.
In this edWebinar, explore the metacognitive and social-emotional skills to best help students navigate this academic and personal life with success, as well as how educators can reinforce these skills, whether in person or at a distance. Viewers will explore the latest lessons and walk away with tangible activities related to the art of goal setting, planning for the future, time management, and more, all geared toward your middle and high school students.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers and school leaders.
