Pre Conference Teacher Workshop

Join the EVERFI team as we walk through all the free resources and how to get started.

 

Breaking Barriers: Building Financial Capability at Every Age

Financial decisions have always been complex - made even more so by a global pandemic. Many students do not feel prepared to make informed financial choices as they move into adulthood. Financial capability doesn't belong in just one subject area or a classroom unit; the more exposure students have, the better their financial outcomes are likely to be in the future. Join us as we explore strategies and activities for incorporating financial education into a variety of classrooms.

 

SEL Strategies to Support Your Students' Return to School

This past school year was strenuous and full of uncertainties for students across the nation. We can be certain that students will return to school this fall with a wide range of social-emotional needs. Many students experienced prolonged remote learning and will need to relearn “how to school,” and even students who have consistently been in-person may be experiencing heightened stress from economic and health-related challenges at home. Join us in an interactive session to discuss actionable strategies and practical resources to support your students on day one with a focus on teaching SEL skills like self-awareness, respect, communication, accountability, and time management.

 

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Going Viral

As social interactions increasingly go digital (and sometimes viral), our students need more support in navigating the digital world safely and responsibly. Technology may be a useful tool for discovery and learning, but it is rifle with pitfalls for students' wellbeing, personal privacy and data protection. In this session, educators will learn how to better prepare students for social media use as a student and later in adult life. Get tools to help students evaluate online information and equip them with strategies to use technology without letting it control their lives.

Educator Mental Wellness: How Districts Can Offer Support

While resources related to mental health have been (rightfully) front and center for supporting students, parents, and others, less focus has been paid on maintaining the mental health of the educators and school professionals. Join our panel of experts as they discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on educator mental health. District leaders will walk away with actionable strategies for how to support teacher mental health as they prepare for the 2021-22 school year and beyond.

 

Tackling Teen Vaping: Actionable Strategies for Your District

Vaping prevention is top of mind for districts and schools across the nation. As they work tirelessly with educators to prevent vaping in their communities, EVERFI has joined forces with the Truth Initiative and the American Heart Association to provide a scalable, prevention forward set of digital and non-digital cessation resources. In this session, educators will learn how to rethink their vaping response by focusing more on prevention, the importance of taking a supportive approach when working with students/learners, and best practices to curtail usage as they incorporate the Vaping: Know the truth resource. Participants will leave this session with a plan to incorporate EVERFI offline skills-based resources and online content lessons into your existing health curriculum.

 

Strategies for Supporting Student Mental Health

What is the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on student mental health? How have some students been impacted differently than others? How do we support students and encourage them to build resiliency? How has EVERFI's Mental Wellness Basics course made a difference? Join Dr. Drummond from HCA and Erin McClintock from EVERFI as they discuss these topics and more, while sharing insights from EVERFI's national data set. Participants will leave the session with actionable strategies for cultivating compassion, resilience, and optimism among students.

 

College, Career, and Everything in Between!

How can teachers help their students evaluate all paths available to them after high school? We'll dive into that and what students can do now to start preparing. College is an option - but what if college isn't YOUR best choice? We'll explore college and career readiness and everything in between. You'll leave with resources to support students in finding their paths and help make the post-graduate conversation more inclusive.

 

A Shark Tank State of Mind: Empowering an Entrepreneurial Mindset in Every Classroom

By 2020, at least 40% of America’s workforce will be entrepreneurs, freelancers or contractors, and 54% of Millennials either want to start a business or have already done so. As we prepare students for their careers in this new economy — as employees or business owners — we have to acknowledge that they will need a very different set of skills than what has been taught in the past, and those skills will need to be taught in evolving ways. This session introduces activities and free resources to help students hone their innovative thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and other entrepreneurial traits essential for success.

 

Grants, FAFSA, Loans, Oh My! Evaluating the ROI of College

When helping students make decisions and plans for the future, we encourage them to gather as much information as possible to make the best choices. How to finance higher education should be no exception, but with the varying sources of funding this process can be overwhelming. In this session, we uncover the mysteries and myths of securing funding for college and share practical tips for higher education financial planning. (Best for US Audiences)

 

The New Rules for Title IX in K-12 Schools

True learning and collaboration happens when all students feel safe, included and celebrated. This session will explore the new rules for Title IX in K-12 schools and how to address these regulations at the district level with diversity, equity, and inclusion resources. We will explore how to support educators in having important conversations with students and how to build a positive school culture for everyone.

Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Schools: Educator Commitment, Preparedness, and Perceived Barriers

Renewed calls to action around social and racial injustice have permeated many aspects of our lives, including our work in the classroom. But how do educators feel about teaching and discussing topics related to race, racism, allyship, and injustice? Join Erin McClintock from EVERFI, Derek Francis from Minneapolis Public Schools, and Dr. Lacey Hilliard from Suffolk University as they share findings from a survey of educators, with a focus on comfort and preparedness for facilitating conversations about race, racism, and racial justice.

Representation in EVERFI Courses: How We Build with DEIA in Mind

Students can do that when they are given opportunities to see themselves, or other students like them, through representation.
