Custom Learner Guides

SoulSpark Learning transforms how we see children and each other.

SoulSpark learner guides were designed to support educators and parents in sharpening their ability to be responsive to the variety of factors influencing each child’s development to increase self-awareness, achievement and relationship quality. The SoulSpark Learning™ approach monitors and supports eight aspects of student development in practice (intellectual, emotional, sociopolitical, creative, eco-literacy, multicultural, physical and spiritual) and is informed by 25 years experience serving exceptional children, educators and parents in a variety of educational settings, as well as through formal IRB approved research.

SoulSpark Learning K-8 Full Day Educator Workshop

Students who receive meaningful instruction responsive to their developmental complexities are prepared to lead healthy lives and be agents of positive change. The SoulSpark Learning approach to instructional design prioritizes educator well-being and considers the interdependent aspects of development that impact life outcomes. This full day workshop is for educators looking to: 1.) Grow as leaders in designing instruction responsive to the nuances of student development. 2.) Connect with bright educators who are both scientists and artists creatively applying the latest research in practice. 3.) Learn new strategies, tools and practices to integrate into the classroom. 4.). Be more effective agents of positive change. 

Next Event: August 11th at Stargate K-12 School for Gifted Learners in Denver Metro (see details, including scholarship application, on our events page).
