Focus on the Journey: Teaching Teens the Skills they Need the Most
Date/Time: February 9, 2021, On-Demand
Developing Life Skills in School
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 session, we 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. Attendees 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. There will be time to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
Attendees will receive:
- A certificate for 1 hour of professional learning
- Access to the free digital lessons from FutureSmart (for middle school) and Keys to Your Future (for high school)
- Access to additional online and offline resources
