Strategies for Teaching Youth

Due to the changes in LINC funding, there are higher numbers of youth learners in classrooms, which have changed the landscape of our schools. During this presentation, three youth instructors will share profiles of youth learners, strategies to teach them, and characteristics instructors should have when engaging with youth. Examples, ideas and practical tips will be given to take back to your own classrooms.
