with Bobbi Jo Erb
March 5, 11, 18 and April 1 – All webinars start at 3:45 p.m.
Have you ever worked with students who refuse to try– even when a task is relatively easy? Or students who give up before they have started? Or students who cannot make a move without your help every step of the way? As educators, we have seen this type of student behavior far too often.
Psychologists refer to this behavior as “learned helplessness.” In this webinar series, we will look at what learned helplessness is and ways to combat it. Our examples and resources will be in the area of mathematics, but the strategies discussed with work in any classroom setting.
Target Audience: K-12 Math Educators
Credit: One optional university credit available in connection with this webinar series.
Webinars are recorded and available for viewing the next day! If you want to take the course credit and have time conflicts with the live webinar, you will work with the instructor to arrange makeup work.
