Feeling challenged by unmotivated students or power struggles?
Are you looking for a respectful and structured classroom management approach that builds student responsibility and a caring learning community?
Would you like to build an inclusive classroom where students of all races, classes, genders or learning styles are empowered to become positive leaders and learners?
This interactive workshop is designed for teachers, counselors, school staff and administrators who want an effective discipline approach that integrates social and emotional learning while reducing challenging student behaviors. According to research, social emotional instruction promotes positive attitudes towards self, others and school and increases academic achievement.
Workshop participants will learn how to:
• Develop a large teaching toolbox of kind and firm discipline approaches.
• Establish explicit classroom structures and procedures.
• Create an equitable classroom community based on mutual respect.
• Understand the motivation behind students' misbehavior and how to encourage positive change.
• Facilitate effective class meetings teaching social and life skills and problem solving.
