Coming Soon:

The Level II Training Workshop shows you how to integrate students’ interests, gifts and talents into your program.  This process can be used with any curriculum or source of study, maximizing your students’ learning experience as you focus on igniting passion and nurturing personal brilliance within your existing educational structure.

In this training workshop, you will receive a copy of  and learn to work with the information in The Educator’s Guide. This guide also contains reproducible materials to help you integrate what you learned in Level I into your school day and help you track your students’ progress.

Prerequisite:  Level I Training, Sessions I and II

Level II Training is broken into three units, Unit I Interest, Unit II Passion, Unit III Brilliance, all coordinated to the corresponding units in The Essential Guide and Workbook.  We use the acronym EMAP to represent our step-by-step process: Expose, Monitor, Assess and Provide the Next Step.

In each of the EMAP’s in Unit I and Unit II in The Educator’s Guide, you will find four sections:                                                            

Quick Reference Guide
Fact Summary Sheet
Exploratory Curricular Activity
Lesson Plan Worksheet

Materials:  Each participant will receive a copy of The Educator’s Guide to Interests, Passions and Brilliance, companion to The Essential Guide and Workbook you received in the Level I Training Workshops.

The Quick Reference Guide gives you a synopsis of the information presented in the beginning of each EMAP in The Essential Guide and Workbook.  This information will help you execute the corresponding EMAPs in the The Educator’s Guide. (For more detailed information, refer to The Workbook section listed in bold at the beginning of each Quick Reference Guide.)

The Fact Summary Sheet is a summary of the information you gathered about your child as you journaled your observations and did the activities presented in The Essential Guide and Workbook. You will use this fact sheet as a guide to help you create your Curricular Exploratory Activities and Lesson Plans.

The Exploratory Curricular Activity is a worksheet designed to help you brainstorm activities based on your individual student’s interests and passions. The goal of this activity is to help you develop as many activities as possible to incorporate your students’ interests and passions into your curriculum and learning environment.  You will use the activities you identify in this exercise to build your lesson plans and guide your direction in the next step. We recommend you save you Exploratory Curricular Activities in a notebook for further planning and reference.

Lesson Plan Worksheet is designed to help you create a detailed map, identifying exactly what you hope each student will learn and how.  This template will help you keep track of the subject, skill and content area you wish to cover, and the interests and passions you hope to develop and integrate into your child’s learning activity.  It will help you identify and clarify your individual student’s learning objectives, define the outcome you would like to see, and record which activities you used to reach your goals. It provides a record for future reference of the materials and resources you used to get there, including your evaluation and recommendations, if any, to improve the activity.
