Limited Capacity seats available

Today's high school classroom is frequently one that reflects the pressurized environment of high stakes testing. Content presentation and retention is paramount to all parties involved. There is a constant search for ways to alter lessons and assignments, as well as continuing attempts to locate best practices that will yield the best understanding of content.

However, group interactions have two major forces, one being content dynamics, and the other being process dynamics. Process dynamics involve all of the many human behaviors, both verbal and nonverbal, which play a major role in how we as human beings are received. Though often overlooked, these play a crucial role in student behavior and understanding of material. Some topics to be addressed include: Nonverbal teacher and student behavior, modeling of appropriate behavior, psychology's curricular content, students searching for meaning, group dynamics and processes and others.
