Speak UP! Classrooms: Increasing Active Engagement in Inclusive International Classrooms

Lecturer: Deborah Nussbaum. Program Area: All / Strand: Innovative Learning / Grade Level: K-12.

Deborah Nussbaum, Learning Resource Coordinator at Kyiv International School.

An interactive session focused on how teachers can increase student voice with all students in the classroom, regardless of English Language and Special Education differences, while also challenging on and above level learners.  Participants will reflect on the amount of time both teachers and students spend working socially and collaboratively within their own lessons.  Using presented and shared strategies to enhance response time with students who have common behavioral, academic, and language concerns, they will then work in groups to revamp their lessons.  The goal is to allow the teachers to step down, and have the students Speak UP!
