The Application of Personality Typing

THIS IS A LONG BEACH TEACHER CENTER COURSE. This course is a workshop which explores the 16 MPTI Personality Types as well as The Four Temperaments and its implications and applications in every aspect of our lives. The information taught in this course will help to engender a broader understanding of how teachers, administrators, and TAs can understand themselves, their families, colleagues and reach and teach the whole child, which is the ultimate foundation for the Common Core standards.

Objectives:
In order to persevere in problem solving, disagree respectfully, see others; perspectives, and share ideas, social and emotional learning must take place. Appreciating one's attributes and differences is a prerequisite to collaboration, learning, and global thinking. Students in this course will learn how to understand themselves and others. Teaching and learning styles as well as techniques in communicating to every personality type will be deeply explored.
