Motivating Struggling Learners

About Our Workshop:

Struggling learners can take many shapes and forms. Some may be disillusioned or disenfranchised; some may not see value in school, while others may really struggle with academics. What are critical components to help these students? Is there a best way to motivate them; and what does that look like?

Our speaker – Fil DaSilva – will tackle these issues. As someone who was truly a “struggling student”, he will share personal experiences, struggles he faced, and consequences that resulted. He will highlight strategies to avoid these struggles. He will also share personal insight into how a student who did not have enough credits to graduate with his high school classmates, how a student who did not own a single binder or writing utensil — or have enough credits to graduate with his high school classmates.

About Our Speaker:

Fil DaSilva is a teacher in Upper Grand District School Board, and earned his Bachelors degree in Physical Education at Brock University and Bachelor of Education at Lakehead University. Fil identifies as a “struggling learner” himself. He struggled with confidence, motivation, and his academics were poor at best during high school. Fil now seeks to inspire and pass his knowledge and wisdom to a generation of young minds. When not teaching, Fil enjoys playing the guitar and spending time with his family.
