Presented by Dr. Spencer Kagan!

Emotion-Friendly Teaching, Days 1 & 2

Accelerating Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)!

March 23–24, 2020 in Tallahassee, Florida

Dr. Spencer Kagan has just completed his newest book: Emotion-Friendly Teaching. In this high intensity workshop, Dr. Kagan leads you through the two sides of emotion-friendly teaching: 1) Eliciting the ten positive emotions, and 2) Teaching students to know and manage their emotions. You receive the powerful Kagan Emotion Wheel that allows students to locate themselves and move in emotional space. You will use the emotion wheel to foster the four dimensions of emotional intelligence: Self-Knowledge, Self-Control, Self-Motivation, and Empathy. Using the emotion wheel, students are empowered. They are no longer controlled by their emotions; they know their emotions and know how to move to more positive states. By the way, understanding the emotion wheel empowers teachers to better know their students, their significant others, and themselves!

Emotion-Friendly Teaching

Accelerating Social-Emotonal Learning (SEL)!
Dr. Spencer Kagan

Spencer has done it again! He’s written another must-have reference for all educators. Dr. Kagan has translated the enormous field of theory and research on emotions into a practical guide any teacher can use to make their teaching more emotion-friendly. Not only does he review the extensive research on how eliciting positive emotions boosts student achievement, Spencer provides plenty of do’s and don’ts, ready-to-use student activities, and simple tips to put students in the optimal emotional states for learning. Dr. Kagan introduces us to the Emotion Wheel, a student-friendly way to help our students understand and manage their own emotions. We not only learn why EQ can be more important than IQ to students’ success, Dr. Kagan provides a practical guide to developing the facets of EQ, including student self-knowledge, self-control, motivation, and empathy. And last, but definitely not least, you learn how to evoke emotion when you teach to make learning more meaningful and memorable.
