How to play with, experiment on, and improve secondary student motivation during the first weeks of school.
The Five Key Beliefs Basecamp is a 1-day virtual workshop and private community for anyone who wants to positively affect student motivation in their work as a classroom educator.
Classroom teachers looking to produce more learning with less stress in classrooms of all content areaes.
Teams of teachers wanting to develop a shared fire for the work of teaching and a shared language for discussions around student motivation.
School leaders who are hearing from all their teachers that student engagement and motivation are their biggest challenges right now.
The best way to get pumped about teaching is to do things in your classroom that make a tangible difference. I want you to end this year excited for the next one. I want this month's breakthroughs to fuel next fall's forward progress in your career.
Lots of times we get "stuck" with student motivation troubles by viewing them as immovable, "Kids these days" kinds of obstacles. The five key beliefs methodology helps us get WAY past that frustration.
There's plenty I'm average at, but one thing I can promise is that if you engage with this workshop you'll be generously reminded of the great goodness and nobility in being an educator -- even in times like these, even in societies like ours.
I'll focus our learning on questions and concepts specific to the volitional realities of the final weeks of school. Our focus beliefs will be Credibility, Value, and Effort.
In the past calendar year, my professional development experiences have helped over 4,000 educators in dozens of states and 3 countries. But believe it or not, I live a pretty simple and quiet life as a husband, dad, and ninth grade teacher in a small town.
I credit countless mentors for my ability to do this work with sanity and effectiveness, and in this one-day workshop I want to share with you the approach to student motivation that has made all the difference in my life and in the lives of a thousand or so educators around the world.
The purpose of this course is to share what I've learned this year about student motivation and to learn with about how we might end this year with a true bang.
Does teacher credibility matter at the end of a school year? Oh heck yes it does!
Can it be affected so late in the game? You bet.
In this segment we'll focus on specific methods for signaling Care, Competence, and Passion in the final weeks of school
"C'mon, Mr. Stuart -- there are only a few weeks left. Do we really have to read and annotate this article?"
In this segment, we'll focus on specific methods for signaling with the Rainbow of Why during the final weeks of school.
(This one is really fun because the final weeks are laden with potential for leaving our Value mark with students!)
An often-missed aspect of the Effort belief is that none of us have arrived yet. To put it into the language of one of my classroom posters, we are "never finished."
In this segment, we'll examine methods for helping students put forth effective effort in the final weeks of school.
As a member of this course, you get a complimentary license to the Student Motivation Course ($199 value). In the course, I've created 35+ asynchronous video lessons for teachers on the five key beliefs.
The course is just one of several options participants can pursue during the independent portion of our day.
Grab your favorite cup or glass and let's discuss anything that's on your mind re: student motivation.
