2020 Action Based Learning SUMMIT events are back and better than ever. This summer, we dive into a new series focusing on Action Based Learning EXPANDED. How can Action Based Learning strategies be used in all aspects of learning. How can we create a school environment of happy and healthy students? Using Action Based Learning to improve the overall well being of students, motivate our educators, and create a school environment filled with passion and purpose.
Even if you have been to a previous training, you will not want to miss this. This action packed training will feature brand new brain based strategies including reaching the 3L student (at an elementary, middle & high school level), bringing ABL into the classroom and using ABL strategies for the struggling student, the gifted student, the sensory student & the elementary, middle & high school student. We have added vision walls, bean bag relaxation stations and dance parties, to make this training a highlight of your summer!

Least, Last, Lost (3L) Workshop
We’ve made it our personal mission to impact the children who need us the most, and we are doing this through Action Based Learning! 3L is our mission to impact the lives of the students thought of as Least likely to succeed, Last in line at recess, & Lost in the system. We believe in
Least Last Lost --> First, Foremost, Found
The 3L training is for all K-12 educators to stand with us in our mission and learn strategies and teaching methods to make an impact on students - specifically the 3L students. If you are an educator working with disadvantaged students, this training is a MUST!!
How do I know if this training is for me?
Do you have students who...have difficulty sitting still? Do you have students who exhibit off task behaviors? Does your school need to raise test scores? Are you looking for opportunities to increase learning and decrease off task behavior? If so, you don’t want to miss this!
Are you looking to Increase Learning & Improve Classroom Culture?
This is not a program, but a paradigm shift in thinking and teaching. 3L training is designed to assist and support you as an educator to develop a better understanding of your students, particularly those that leave you with your hands in the air saying, “I have tried everything! What now?!”. Understanding the complexities of poverty and the behaviors that are often associated with it, enable you to identify the issue and use appropriate strategies to reduce most common misbehaviors. You will leave this training with a positive and proactive approach to improving your classroom climate!
