Do you love sharing yoga and mindfulness with the young people you work with, but feel that you could be doing so more effectively?
Join long time classroom teacher and LFY Director of Professional Development Argos Gonzalez for this online workshop where you'll be guided in the development of a customized curriculum that meets the needs of your students (and the realities of your teaching circumstances!).
Learn to assess need, create structures that support learning, embed key questions and learning elements into lessons, make deliberate choices about activities, and evaluate student progress as you go. Finish the course with a finalized curriculum ready for use.
This is an interactive workshop and we highly recommend joining each session to get the benefits of group work and Q&A time, however all sessions will be recorded and registered participants may request recordings if they can't make the any of the "live" sessions. Some facilitated brainstorming and follow-up work will be required between sessions in order to walk away with a finalized curriculum.
