A Strength-based Approach: Seeing Children as “At Potential”

Conference Year: 

2017

Primary Speaker name: 

Every student has strengths but these may get overlooked as we focus on needs and difficulties.  Learn how to systematically and intentionally observe students as “at potential” vs. “at risk”!!  Use the TOPS (Teachers Observation of Potential in Students) to see and document student’s strengths to plan strength-based instructional experiences.  Reflect with your colleagues on how a strength-based approach to children and learning impacts classroom practices!
