FORMAT: Presentation
LANGUAGE: English
SHORT DESCRIPTION: Do your students light up with interest when you introduce a new topic or task in math, science, literature, or history? Do they push past difficulties in the work you give them, in order to master the material? Does your homework give them “deliberate practice” in key concepts, skills, and habits? Based on the research in Kathleen Cushman’s book “Fires in the Mind,” this presentation sets out six powerful ways by which young people say the best teachers ignite their motivation to learn. You will take away a checklist of 29 specific actions that both increase the value students place on what you teach and heighten their expectation that they can master each new challenge you present. Participants will also be welcome to contribute their own suggestions of ways to light new “fires in the mind” of young learners.
