IEW Annual Educators’ Conference

Mar 20, 2023 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team

On July 22, 2023, we warmly invite you to attend the IEW Annual Educators’ Conference. This special online and in-person event is a great way to invest in yourself as you transition towards summer and all of its attendant academic planning. Conference attendees will be joining from all over the world, creating many opportunities for collaboration and encouragement. Beginning at 9 AM Central Time, the day will be filled with sessions specifically designed to empower and encourage you to be the best possible educator you can be to your students.The schedule for the day is as follows:

9:00 AM CT: Cultivating Language Arts — Preschool through High School

Listening and reading well, speaking and writing clearly, and thinking and debating effectively are abilities that most parents hope to cultivate in their children. With that goal in mind, Andrew Pudewa explores various environments and activities that accelerate the development of these language skills, beginning with the youngest students and continuing into the high school years.

10:30 AM CT: Mastery Learning, Ability Development, and Individualized Education

What is mastery learning? How does it relate to education? Andrew Pudewa explains the methods, goals, and benefits of the ability development model as developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. He also discusses applications to disciplines other than music. Learn how you can create success in areas where you or your children have struggled in the past.

1:00 PM CT: Spelling and the Brain

Many children have difficulty learning to spell, but the difficulty may not be with the student. Often parents and teachers feel ill-equipped to help students who are not natural spellers. Join Andrew Pudewa to learn how spelling information is most efficiently stored in the brain, to gain greater insight into the nature of spelling and neurological function, and to be better equipped to teach students how to spell.

2:30 PM CT: Teaching Boys and Teaching Girls — Toward a Better Understanding

Boys and girls hear differently, see differently, and handle stress and pain differently. Join Andrew Pudewa to gain an in-depth understanding of these neurophysiological distinctions and the implications of these differences. This workshop is packed with research, humor, and practical stories that will enlighten teachers and teaching parents.

It will be a day filled with education, inspiration, and encouragement.
