CR20 LIVE Weekly Show: Joan Young on “Encouragement in the Classroom”, We are excited to have Joan Young as our special guest on Classroom 2.0 LIVE on September 6, 2014. Joan has recently published her book: Encouragement in the Classroom and she will be sharing some of her best tips and strategies for creating and nurturing an encouraging classroom environment. We all know the factors that can threaten a positive classroom environment: stress from testing, lack of motivation, and problems that students bring from home, for a start. What if we could implement some simple practices to buffer against these factors’ negative effects? The good news is that we can. Some of the suggestions Joan will share include how fostering humor, mindfulness, resilience, curiosity, and gratitude in the classroom empowers students to learn from their mistakes, celebrate successes, and actively engage in learning.
