 APRIR  takes pleasure in inviting you to the presentation: 

Preventing and Managing Conflict in the Class
by Patricia Zorio

Deadline to enrol: midnight July 27th

Research has proved that students´ potential for success and motivation to learn decrease unless the atmosphere in the class is friendly and relaxed. Therefore , it is our duty as teachers to acquire skills to become a teacher-coach in order to create a learning environment where core values such as appreciation, compassion, empathy, fairness and respect are promoted and  used  to perform positive action.

In this workshop, attendees will be interacting and experimenting with activities to prevent class conflict. Basic notions of Social and Emotional Learning  and Mindfulness will be provided so as to explain the rationale behind the activities. A variety of games and dramatic activities will be tried out and shared.
