Presented by Dr. Pedro Noguera


Dr. Pedro Noguera

For too long, school reform efforts focused narrowly on academic achievement while ignoring the psychological and emotional challenges confronting many children. In this insightful webinar, Dr. Pedro Noguera discusses the important connection between students’ well-being and their academic achievement and how a more holistic approach to teaching and learning can increase student success. 

Drawing on a decade of research, current evidence, and school-tested strategies, Dr. Noguera will:  

  • Share how schools have successfully countered the risks facing some students, promoting resilience and motivating them to excel academically.  
  • Identify critical ingredients to create schools that are more responsive to student needs. 
  • Explore the importance of positive relationships between students and educators, educators and parents, and among students themselves. 

At its conclusion, participants will understand the interconnectedness of well-being and academic success and learn strategies proven to raise student achievement.
