[Download Workshop Summary Now] [Register for "Beyond Poverty"] S E S S I O N #2 Teaching the Habits of Deeper Learning: Systems and Strategies for Effective Student Behavior Presented by Kelly Spanoghe Student behavior − and a school's capacity to effectively manage it − has a dominant effect on learning. Schools that establish successful systems for behavior motivation and equip teachers with practical, effective strategies for classroom management empower students to learn deeply and accelerate their progress. This workshop will highlight the customized Positive Behavior Support (PBS) Program used in Transformation Education schools and two unique models created by The Children's Guild: Student Support Center (SSC) and the Multi-Sensory De- Escalation Room (MSDR).

  • 5. 1:30-5:00 p.m. | Open to the Public - $99 per person Mentor Training with Tony presented by Tony LoRe CEO & Founder of Youth Mentoring Connection www.youthmentoring.org This is not a lecture. This inspiring, entertaining and highly interactive session is a practical training for applying the innovative concepts of the Model: Mentoring - A Gift- Centered Approach. The session is designed for mentors and program operators and will focus on how to build effective, life- changing mentoring experiences using Youth Mentoring's revolutionary "Gift Centered Approach." This foundational program will help participants learn the approach to mentoring that has changed thousands of lives in one of our nation's most difficult neighborhoods (South Central LA) through exercises, discussion and tackling real-life situations. Mentors and program operators will develop the skills and attitudes they need to successfully perform in the mentoring role; introduce participants to the gift-centered approach; answer questions they may have about the mentoring experience and generally come away with the confidence to change two lives (the mentor and the youth).
