Counseling & Special Ed

This course emphasizes the critical nature of self-esteem in each person. According to Abraham Maslow, self-esteem is one of the basic needs we have in our life. It is the pillar on which we are built. Too often, schools see children with low esteem that then interferes with their education. By examining motivational theory and strategies, we will find ways to increase the self-esteem and motivation in children. In addition to examining your own behavior style, each educator will learn successful ways of planning for a students╩╝ success.  This class will quickly illustrate ways to make a difference in your school and classroom.
Through hands on applications within the schools, reading materials and analyzing case studies, each student will be able to develop effective strategies for students.
This course is designed to be effective for all K-12 educators, regardless of teaching level or job description.
