Today we are talking about validation. Turns out feelings of validity can heavily influence how we do at the things we attempt like attending college. Therefore establishing a validating environment in the classroom can be life changing. 

Presenters Emily Verace and Richard Meyers facilitated a breakout session at Fall FLEX Day called Change Your Students’ Lives in the First Two Weeks of Class based on what they learned from Laura I. Rendon’s theory. Stick around and discover what is behind that catchy title. 

And just a quick note that there were many interactive exercises in this session that we couldn’t capture on audio for the podcast but I hope you enjoy this abridged version of this very validating session.
