Presented by: Glen Pearsall
Event Information: 12 PD Hours
How do we turn the High Impact Teaching Strategies into everyday practice in our classroom? This TWO DAY workshop both explains the H.I.T.S. and explores concrete, classroom- tested strategies for using them to help your students meet their potential. Participants completing this course will:
- Explore activities and learning games designed specifically for each of the H.I.T.S.
- Review why these strategies have such a high impact and discuss how to tailor the H.I.T.S. to the specific needs of your school to maximise their impact.
- Investigate resources for employing H.I.T.S. with students of all ages and abilities
- Learn how to adopt these practices without having to add more preparation or correction to your workload.
