Milady Educator Class - The Action-Packed Classroom- Sometimes classrooms can become quite boring! We’ve all seen students looking uninterested, with their eyes glazed over and heads propped up with their hands. When students are not involved or are unable to move around during class and engage in the learning process, they become bored. During this session you will discover techniques to keep your classrooms action packed. You will learn how to kick start your class in the morning, incorporate powerful engagers throughout the day and end your day with action packed closing activities, all of which will help keep your students engaged and involved in the learning process!
