Supporting Potential: Practical Strategies for Embedding Psychosocial Skill Development into Instruction

Psychosocial skills, such as motivation and self-beliefs, are a critical part of academic talent development for students with advanced learning needs. This full-day workshop will guide participants as they examine the psychosocial skills required to engage in challenging learning experiences, develop a bank of strategies for embedding psychosocial skills coaching into content-area instruction, and create action plans to apply this learning.
