Be a Marvel Motivator: Catch the Super Powers That Will Guarantee Your Students’ Continuous Success and Achievements!
Limited Capacity seats available

Create an environment in the Primary Grades where students are excited to be at school, feel
safe sharing ideas and take responsibility for their own learning while working in a cooperative
group setting. Think outside the box when it comes to stimulating the imagination and
documenting student accomplishments. Become familiar with managing and monitoring
student engagement so that you can collect clear evidence of their learning which will drive
your instruction. Let me show you how to use some technology applications that assist in
collecting a wide range of student learning which become a part of each student’s digital
portfolio. As you reflect on the “glowing’ and “growing’ moments you observe happening with
your classroom family, see how to exercise your Super Powers by delivering instruction that is
motivating and fosters accelerated success! Through the planning of higher-level thinking
games, differentiated centers and inquiry-based stations that encourage creativity . . . find out
how children can demonstrate their application of what is being taught by engaging in
structured play, Learning Labs, and a variety of creative experiences.
