EDUC 3303 - Motivating and Guiding School-Age Children and Adolescents♦


(5 cr.) Educators have a responsibility to guide and motivate as well as to foster self-esteem and resilience in school-age children and adolescents. Education professionals in this course address a continuum of effective strategies needed for working with school-age children and adolescents in group and classroom settings. Such strategies include effective communication, positive guidance, modeling/mentoring, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, fostering self-esteem, promoting resilience, and problem-solving and conflict-resolution skills. They learn to apply theory to practice as they critically analyze several theoretical constructs and consider their implications for working with school-age children and adolescents in group and/or classroom settings.
