Back to School Series: Setting Students Up for Success in a School Year of Uncertainty
Setting Students Up for Success in a School Year of Uncertainty
We know the only constant this school year is change. Finding ways to promote autonomy, competence and a sense of relatedness and belonging - which research reveals are the key foundational tools to building intrinsic motivation - is critical for this year and beyond. Join noted author Ana Homayoun as she discusses how we set students up socially, emotionally and academically in the midst of pandemic pivoting and change is key to long-term success.
Ana is an author, educator of three books, and founder and executive director of Silicon Valley based Green Ivy Educational Consulting, which helps students thrive in and outside of the classroom. Ana is also the founder of Luminaria Learning, a non-profit initiative bringing critical programming into public schools through the Life Navigator Middle School Program. Her work has been featured in the NYTimes, Washington Post, the Atlantic, Fast Company, CNBC, CNN, ABC News, among others, and she is a frequent guest on NPR.
She speaks at schools in-person and virtually doing student talks, parent education, and faculty professional development. Learn more about her work at www.anahomayoun.com.
