Do you teach in a "high-risk" environment where the majority of your students have a high probability of failing academically or dropping out of school? Are you new to Kagan, or have you experienced difficulties implementing Kagan Structures in your classroom due to your students' exceptional circumstances? Students dealing with poverty, homelessness, behavioral issues, learning disabilities, learning English, or incarceration can present severe teaching challenges. Meet the challenge with the structures, activities, and procedures you'll learn in this workshop. Combining tools from Cooperative Learning, Win-Win Discipline, and Brain-Friendly Instruction, this workshop empowers you with knowledge and strategies you will put to work immediately in your classroom. You will reach and support your hardest to reach and teach students. While individual teachers benefit greatly from this workshop, it is even more powerful when the entire school (or a school team) implements these powerful tools to transform the school experience for high-risk students.
