Presentation Abstract

The Check Engine Light is On!

When your check engine light is on do you just continue driving until the car stops running? Or do you pull over, find out the problem, and begin the healing process? Using the acronym CHECK, which stands for connection, humor, engagement, creativity and kindness, this presentation focuses on maintaining positive energy in the classroom and how to use engagement as a tool for decreasing undesired behavior. This presentation will discuss current research on intrinsic motivation, drive, and timing as it pertains to learning both in the classroom and in the home or community. Participants will learn how to quickly check their own “engine lights” and the engine lights (triggers, cues) of their students and when it is appropriate to stop and let the battery recharge before moving forward. High and low-level engagement activities will be discussed as well as when to use these activities. The presenter will explain the value of humor in the classroom and discuss the how and when of using humor as a positive behavior support. The goal of this presentation is that attendees leave with a renewed sense of their own abilities to motivate and encourage their students and a new set of skills to use to make positive connections, continued engagement, and diagnostic skills for those blinking engine lights…
