This session is designed to train teachers in the technique of Joy Factor. Finding joy in the work of learning is a key driver not just of a happy classroom, but a high achieving one as well. Joy Factor can be energetic or low-key and may be used with individual students as well as groups both large and small.
Through analysis of master teachers’ techniques and practice, participants in the session will:
- Analyze 5 types of Joy Factor
- Design and practice the execution of a Joy Factor moment to use in the classroom immediately
- Analyze and avoid potential pitfalls of Joy Factor implementation
Our goal is for you to save time that you would otherwise spend creating a PD session from scratch and to dive deep into the small concrete actions that can take your teachers’ skills from good to great. The Plug and Play provides you with:
✓ A fully customizable PowerPoint presentation with embedded videos of teachers demonstrating Joy Factor
✓ Facilitator notes for what to say and do for each slide
✓ 17 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
✓ Carefully designed practice activities
✓ A Feedback Cheat Sheet—prioritized success points for coaching teachers on Joy Factor
✓ Participant Handouts for interactive note taking
✓ Next steps to ensure what’s learned in the session carries over into classrooms
