About the program: Introduction to Non-Verbals… The Essential Gems of ENVoY
Studies show that 82% of all communication is non-verbal. An educator’s thoughtful use of non-verbals has a substantial impact on creating more effective learning environments. The skills learned in this course allow educators to preserve their most powerful leverage point: relationships. Educators love these strategies because they create an atmosphere where less time is spent on management and more time is spent learning.

Course Objectives:
Participants will learn several key non-verbal strategies (“Gems”) and discuss why non-verbals can be even more effective than verbal management tools.
The Gems taught in this course will support teachers’ ability to:
Get students’ attention even more quickly
Enable efficient transitions to increase student time on task
Foster student independence
Increase students’ understanding of teacher expectations and curriculum.

Teachers will have less stress and more energy
Teachers will establish and preserve positive relationships with students, parents and colleagues
Students will become more productive and spend more time on task
Students will become self-directed and responsible for their learning
