SHOW VS. TELL:
Powerful Ways to Teach Essential Skills for Life & Learning
There are dozens of positive opportunities every day where we can take what is already going on and use it to demonstrate outstanding life skills. Young people learn most from what they are shown, not told in lectures. This energizing, nationally-acclaimed presentation is packed with specific and practical examples of things we can do immediately to help young people learn skills that maximize learning and success, including: handling challenges, mistakes, problems, and anger in positive ways, communicating feelings, developing critical life skills, increasing respect, politeness, and responsibility, and more. We will be refreshed and invigorated with the powerful and lasting differences we can make in the lives of young people.
