Learn strategies that will motivate your young learners, build their conceptual knowledge, and foster social interactions. Create an environment where there is 100% engagement intertwined with the joint functioning of cognitive strategies. In LeAnna’s seminar, you will find out how to achieve balance in developing the key academic skills your primary students need through highly practical, time-efficient Kagan structures while maintaining a child-centered focus. Peek behind the curtain to find out what hands-on manipulatives children use to take responsibility for their own learning.
