Professional Development Workshop - Eric Johnson
Cooperation is one of the most important skills teachers emphasize to build community, include students with a diverse range of abilities and needs, and prepare them for the world of work. In this workshop, explore how to build cooperative team work by learning to lead classroom-tested, playful, creative movement activities that teach students to take turns, listen carefully, read a partner’s non-verbal cues, and speak in response. Throughout the workshop observe the modeling of an easy, repeatable classroom management system, which creates a calm, cooperative environment for learning.
