Instead of merely controlling students, can we empower and equip them to take more ownership of their learning process? How do we cultivate joyful, curious learners as we strengthen their abilities to develop self-control? How do we cultivate habits that will lead to a love for learning? In short, how do we tune their hearts to learn, not for a class period, but for life? This workshop will share strategies that have been successful and offer an opportunity for attendees to share ideas as well.
