MOTIVATING STUDENTS TO PUT EFFORT INTO LEARNING

with Dave Stuart Jr.

It's hard to help students learn when they don't really care to. But fun activities and candy bribes will never solve this problem because true motivation stems from what students believe in their hearts. In this session, Dave Stuart, Jr. will unpack how we can help students internalize the belief that wise, strategic effort pays off. Because when students believe that they can succeed, they'll be much more motivated to keep trying.

Overcoming self-censorship amidst a cancel culture

with Clint Elliot of A Cornerstone Law Group

In our current cancel-culture environment, many Christian educators end up self-censoring their own speech and actions.

In this session, we’ll examine recent research about why this is happening and discuss an empowered path forward to overcome self-censorship through faithful living.

Critical Thinking Skills to Help Students Navigate Our Confused Culture

The Forgotten Power of Intercessory Prayer

I am enjoying the mental health topics. They are helping personally, and how I interact with my students. My favorite saying is "School does not define you but God defines you." I want my students to realize that even though school is a struggle for them, God has a plan for their lives.
