Title

Breakout Session #3 - How to defeat Murphy's Law when you teach!

Presentation Type

Breakout Session

Abstract

The one universal law that affects instruction that few educators have defeated is Murphy's law when it comes to the instruction of some black students. The symptoms of Murphy's law are seen in some student's lack of engagement, motivation, and teacher frustration. Therefore, questions arise as to how teachers can disrupt Murphy? OR, How do you engage students in content they don't think they like? This session will teach practical strategies you can use immediately in your class to connect with the teen brain while building a responsive classroom. Participants will take away research based strategies that motivate black students through divergent thinking, synectics, randomness, and storytelling like you've never seen before. Examples will show how to harness the multiple forms of intelligence regardless of the student or teacher's cultural background.
