Promoting engagement and motivation in the middle school classroom can be challenging, even more so as students are returning to the classroom in person. This four-part webinar series will describe a set of simple yet powerful practices that, when used consistently by teachers, can enhance engagement and motivation in middle school. Teachers and staff will learn simple practices to activate the Social Development Strategy, a proven approach to promoting healthy outcomes, in a school setting. This series will highlight each of the practices described in the practice guide, Promoting Evidence-Based Practices to Promote Agency in Middle School Students: Simple practices to activate the Social Development Strategy in a school setting.
Teachers, prevention practitioners, and staff who are working directly with middle school students in HHS Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington).
Presenters: Sally Chapman M.Ed. & Kevin Haggerty, MSW, PhD.
