Abstract

The Kids at Hope (KAH) workshop will be an informative, research-based delivery as well as a handson delivery to help the attendees understand and embrace the concept of KAH. The hands-on delivery will be based on salient components of KAH’s Module 1: “Unleashing the Power of Kids at Hope.” Attendees will also learn about the successes of actual schools and/or youth organizations in the United States that practice KAH. After completing this workshop, attendees will be able to:
• Generate a logical argument on why some children succeed and others fail.
• Define Kids at Hope.
• Examine and synthesize the research that supports the Kids at Hope framework.
• Differentiate the concepts of culture vs. bureaucracy as it relates to Kids at Hope.
• Summarize the three universal truths and top five practices that build the foundation of Kids at Hope.
• Define and embrace culture of success for all children to succeed.
• Apply concepts of KAH in their own professional/educational settings.
The goal of this workshop is to help teachers with ideas to help all students learn math and be successful in the process. The presenters will try to make this old saying a true prediction for the future of your mathematics classroom, “I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand.”
