Maximum learning with minimum stress (but lots of movement)

This workshop will provide teachers with information which can be used to implement routines and strategies that keep the keeners keen while providing support for struggling learners - especially the ones who need to move.  Several hands-on activities in various curricular areas will allow participants to try these routines and strategies for themselves.  If you are looking for ways to increase student engagement, decrease off-task behaviour and leave school at the end of the day feeling calm and looking forward to tomorrow (and it isn\'t even a Saturday!) then Maximum Learning With Minimum Stress  But Lots of Movement could be the workshop for you.  

Target Audience

3 to 8

What to bring

Come prepared for some light physical activity outdoors if weather permits


Donald Fleming

I have enjoyed teaching from Grades 2 to 10 in Surrey schools for over 30 years.   During my career I\'ve learned to structure the learning environment in ways that foster student engagement, healthy self-esteem and socially responsible behaviour while minimizing teacher stress.   My areas of interest include PE, hands on Science, the integration of art and music into other subject areas, usable Math, and creative writing (mine, not theirs).  I have a Bachelor of General Studies from from SFU and a Master of Educational Administration from City University.
