This short workshop will discuss the role teachers and parents play in shaping future prospects for their children and how such approaches, especially when consistently combined with the high expectations of others, such as other family members, teachers and coaches, can lay the ground work of habits and disciplines essential for achieving success in later life. Of particular focus will be the role that expectations play in achieving valued social roles and the part such roles play in shaping identity, learning, reputation and image and the experience of the good things in life.
This workshop is for any teacher, parent or adult concerned for the future well being of children, including those with disabilities and is seeking approaches known to be potent in shaping future success.
The session will be presented by John Armstrong, who will present a lively and interactive session applicable to all children, but especially those who commonly get cast into low expectations and negative roles.
