What it is:

Small Moves, Big Gains offers educators a straightforward path toward increasing student outcomes. The small moves in this training are brief, actionable, and require little to no preparation. Each one is a high-yield strategy that benefits all types of learners and can be applied across content areas. Nancy Motley gives practical steps for turning the moves into automatic habits – showing how to do them, why they are significant, and possible variations. Along the way, she shares the science behind habit formation, as well as many examples from real classrooms. Get ready for a day full of simulations, conversations, and novel activities.
