The 21st Century Student Leader

As we travel through the 21st Century learning model, colleges, universities, and employers have begun to place a focus on leadership and character education. In this presentation called the Leader in Me!, participants will learn how to develop internal motivation in children, how to weave character education in the curriculum, and how to develop children to be 21st Century Global Leaders and Learners.

The Habits of Mind

In 21st Century Learning Model, a heavy emphasis is placed on developing higher level thinking skills. Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, and Metacognition Thinking have become essential in school and more importantly in life.  In this session, the presenter will share activities, stories, and lessons to promote higher level thinking in the early childhood and elementary student. It is critical that children develop these skills during the early stages of life, since this, as Dr. Vivian Walker has stated, is where their “Mental Models” are developed.

What’s in my Toolbox? (Smart is Something You Become!)

As we work with children and particularly children who have challenges grasping skills, we must help students assemble a great learning skill toolbox to have on hand.  Students must develop an inner dialogue that tells them, “I can become smarter every day, not only in my academic development, but also in my social and emotional developmental growth areas.”   We cannot lose focus of the importance of developing the “Whole Child”.  Research clearly shows us that if I feel good about who I am (positive self-esteem), and I understand the importance of traveling through the process, I will achieve and create my desired product (end result). This is taught by understanding relationships with children, holding high expectations of children, consistently delivering intentional specific praise, and understanding and teaching the compound effect.

The High School Graduation Gap & the Elementary Child

Our mental models are developed in our primary and elementary years. In order to have children who are “At Promise” and not “At Risk” develop a growth mindset of success we must develop a sense of high expectations within ourselves as “EdYOUcarers.” Educators teach subject matter,
“EdYOUcarers” teach children. There is a BIG difference. We must bring out the potential that is locked inside our children.
We have to demand within ourselves and ignite the spark in each child in our setting a belief system and thought-process of success. This session will provide and empower those who touch the lives of children to teach children the importance of a private victory, the power of a positive attitude, the importance of personal accountability, and how to have children think and dream big for success.
