Building Success Skills Through Academic Instruction

Building Success Skills through Academic Instruction
Featuring Dr. George Selig and Dr. Alan Arroyo
March 27th @ 12pm EST, Priced at $35

Educators have known for millennia that it takes more than cognitive skills to achieve in academics and life. Some have called this extra factor to success character, values, morals, or ethics. However, these describe general traits or beliefs. The term “success skills” has come in recent years to incorporate all of the above qualities into demonstrable skills students need to succeed in every aspect of life and especially in academics. Also, success skills should be taught as part of the typical curriculum in order to show students the relevancy and importance of these skills during their academic and eventually, in their professional careers.
At participating in the webinar participants will:
1. Know and understand the importance of fostering success skills in students
2. Know and understand Four basic tenets of success skills building
3. Recall the four major categories of success skills
4. Know and understand the basic steps in combining Success Skill training with academic instruction at the primary, middle school, and secondary levels
5. Apply the knowledge and skills from the webinar to real life scenarios

Drs. W. George Selig and Alan A. Arroyo have spent the last 30 years writing and researching in the areas of building discipline, character, and resiliency as part of the classroom management and instructional processes. They will share with webinar participants how to intentionally and seamlessly teach and maintain necessary success skills for all of the students in the classroom.
