• Words that help to build a student’s memory, especially important because all learning is making a memory.

• Words that build hope in a child and how to adapt your language to include student affirmation, prediction of positive outcomes, and vision of a personalized compelling future that empowers student hope.

• Words that make the abstract specific. Participants will be exposed to a powerful 3-step process that significantly improves the young brain's ability to respond to adult requests for changed behavior.

• Words that make the most out of student self-talk. We all talk to ourselves with self-talk. These strategies helps adults help kids recognize their inner voice and more importantly, take control of it.
