Penn State Extension: Teach with Confidence: A Workshop for Youth Educators


This workshop will engage youth educators in the process of developing youth curriculum that incorporate the primary components of effective lessons. Participants will be able to apply the concepts that they are learning in the workshop session to existing plans. The knowledge and skills that members learn through this workshop can be put to use immediately. Participants will leave with the right tools to get them started down the path to effective planning and implementing engaging lessons!

Participants will be asked to provide examples of their own teaching and learning experiences (good and bad), and how they believe planning played a role in the outcome of the experience. Promoting quality learning experiences are critical to the success of our learners, and it begins with effective planning!
