The Purposeful Educator
Discovering the power purpose has to help students, their teachers, and their schools all thrive.

A strong why allows us to withstand any how. This keynote explores how having and articulating a greater underlying purpose to work inspires deeper engagement and more joy in the process, for students and educators. Using research and storytelling, Trevor helps educators understand how embedding purpose in curriculum, relationships, and their own careers can have a profound impact on their students and themselves.

Stop Calling Them Soft Skills

A recent US survey shows that the main reason people are fired from their jobs is that they lack soft skills: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, adaptability, and confidence. Trevor equips teachers to craft learning experiences so that students develop these critical skills while learning 'hard skills’ and academic content. Students do purposeful work while becoming better communicators, collaborators, problem solvers, and citizens.

Connecting with Every Student

Some students are written off as “bad kids” or “too far gone.” School and home experiences have made them difficult to reach and teach. However, by learning their stories, building trust, and engaging them authentically in the classroom, connections can be made and futures can be changed. With inspiration and SEL instruction, Trevor shares proven practices to create an engaged and meaningful classroom for all students.

Creating A Collaborative Classroom

Trevor inspires and equips educators with actionable ideas and proven best practices to facilitate successful collaboration. Authenticity and trust are the heart of strong student teamwork. When students are engaged in meaningful, relevant group work, collaboration is no longer a struggle but transforms into an anticipated, dynamic practice with rich outcomes and deeper learning.

The Epic Classroom: How to Boost Engagement, Make Learning Memorable, and Transform Lives

by Trevor Muir

Definition of Epic: 1. A story or narrative centered around a hero 2. Spectacular; impressive; memorable. If learning is not memorable, should it even be considered learning? For too long, traditional education has used outdated practices to deliver complex and well-intended content to students with very little hope of that subject matter being retained. It often looks like this: Lectures are given --->Students write the information down ---> Students take a test on that information ---> Information is discarded from the brain ---> Repeat. In the The Epic Classroom, Trevor Muir presents a project based learning method that uses the power of storytelling and brain science to give educators practical and proven practices to achieve real student engagement. In return, learning that is permanent and memorable. Any teacher, in any subject area, and in any grade level can use the story-centered project based learning framework of The Epic Classroom to transform their classrooms into settings where students are engaged, challenged, and transformed. In this book you will discover - How to increase student engagement - How to plan and execute effective high quality project based learning experiences- Specific strategies for leading engaged students - Outlines and tools to plan, manage, and assess projects - Methods to increase academic performance in students.
