March 28, 2015 - CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- [Coral Springs, Fl] [March 27, 2015] This new generation feels empowered. These individuals respond better to mentors and coaches, not autocrats. Therefore, educators who hold on tightly to traditional teaching strategies, theories and philosophies will have a hard time reaching these individuals. Keep in mind; we are teaching individuals who are developing at exponential rates. Thus, educators should also evolve and adapt and change their teaching methods in such a way that empowers these individuals to reach their full potential. That’s why Math Concentration is hosting It Works---It’s A Snap! Summer Workshop (MUST DO’S for Educators) and provide important information about professional grant writing, infusing technology, and differentiating instruction to elementary and middle school teachers in Coconut Creek, Fl.

“Obtaining grants, infusing technology, and differentiating instruction are key components that will not only transform your classroom into a viable workspace but foster student engagement Said Wanda Collins, President, Math Concentration. “We hope this workshop will encourage elementary and middle school teachers to be more open to a student-centered classroom, allow students to be active participants in their learning, and build rapport with their students

It Works---It’s A Snap! Summer Workshop will equip educators with knowledge and strategies that will enable them to "bring out the best" in their students. Educators will learn about invaluable techniques and resources that will help them reach their 21st century learners and increase their engagement. The following sessions will transform your classroom into a new millennial workspace. Topics will include "Using Math Centers to Differentiate & Motivate," "Infusing Technology into Your Classroom, Like a Boss" and "What Every Teacher Ought to Know About Professional Grant Writing"
