Frequently Requested Talks:
The Epic Classroom: How to teach using the power of story and projects
Is there any point in learning something if you’re just going to forget it?
And this begs a bigger question: if learning is not memorable, should it even be considered learning?
Trevor shares how educators can shape their classrooms using the power of storytelling and brain science to achieve real student engagement, and in return, learning that is permanent and memorable. Any teacher, in any subject area, and in any grade level can use these practical and proven practices to transform their classrooms into settings where students are engaged, challenged, and transformed.
Keynote - Can do full workshop on topic as well

Using Tech For Authentic Curriculum
There is a difference between getting students ready for the real world and actually immersing them in it.

This session will be a conversation of how certain technologies can be used to enhance authenticity in the classroom.
Coming Alive at 14
This talk for new teachers is about persistence with difficult students and finding ways to connect with them. By finding authentic ways to engage them in the classroom, as well as learning their stories and building relationships, connections can be made with the most difficult students.
