Strategies and Skills for Teachers

Concept by: Susan Gagliano

Description

This course has been created for teachers who want to foster a more dynamic, creative environment in the classroom to encourage and stimulate students’ interest in learning.

Teachers will have the opportunity to learn ‘by doing’ through a range of activities and experiences aimed toward promoting higher student self-esteem, increased student involvement and greater cohesion among teachers, students and their families. This practical, hands-on course is designed to help participants understand, identify and combat early school-leaving, negative school-family relations and the early signs of teacher burn-out.

By the end of the course, teachers will have acquired greater knowledge about how creativity, improved communication and enhanced relational skills can be effective allies in discouraging school-leaving and favoring a more meaningful school experience.

Extra curricular activities included: Guided city tours and 1 day cultural excursion (usually on Saturday).
