Workshop – Teacher Training: Teaching Students at Different Levels ~ One in a Series of Teacher Trainings at Serendipity

Date: April 27-29
When: Fri 9:00am - Sun 2:00pm
With: John Schumacher
Cost: $385 + Accommodations
Location: Serendipity Retreat Center

Friday to Sunday. Needless to say, not all students are the same. How then do we address appropriately the different needs of different students? One way is to have classes of different levels and to teach based on the level of the class. Many teachers, however, do not have the luxury of having different levels. Everyone – beginners, intermediate students, advanced students – comes to the same class. What to do in that kind of setting?

In this workshop, we’ll examine criteria to establish different class levels, how to present the material being taught to different levels, ways to teach a mixed level class, and more. As always, we will practice teach in the afternoon classes to refine your skills as a teacher. Optional early morning practice is open to all.
