In his 35 years of experience in education, Jeffrey Benson has worked in almost every school context: as a teacher in elementary, middle, and high schools; as an instructor in undergraduate and graduate programs; as an administrator in day and residential schools.
He has studied and worked side by side with national leaders in the fields of special education, learning theory, trauma and addiction, school reform, adult development, and conflict resolution. He has been a consultant to public and private schools, mentored teachers and principals in varied school settings, and has written on many school-based issues.
The core of Benson's work is in understanding how people learn, the starting point for everything that schools should do.
Hanging In: Strategies for Teaching the Students
Who Challenge Us Most
Every school has its challenging students.
In this webinar, Jeffrey Benson, author of the ASCD book Hanging In: Strategies for Teaching the Students Who Challenge Us Most, helps you know what you can do now for a challenging student in your school.
From that focus on one student, he explains how you can enrich your team's capacity to hang in with many students.
With powerful stories of students he's worked with and a compassionate, empowering mind-set, Benson provides areas to focus on and a graphic organizer to help you identify positive and negative influences on the student's achievement.
