Brief Program Description

Many students experience fear of embarrassment and failure when faced with academic challenges. The fear they experience is real, and powerful enough to block learning and impede success in school. When students and teachers understand how fear (and its cousin, anxiety) obstructs problem solving, they are better able to manage these emotions. First, we will examine the science of fear. Next, we will examine a list of common student stressors that activate the fear response. Finally, we will offer creative, effective techniques for mitigating fear in the learning environment. Discover simple tips that have a powerful impact on learning!
