Positive Discipline Focuses on Discipline That Teaches:
A great deal of recent research has shown unequivocally that Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is vital if teachers and other school personnel hope to increase academic gains for their students of all ages. The abilities of students to manage strong emotions, interact cooperatively with others and resolve problems that come up in their daily lives are quite literally academic survival skills. All SEL programs or curricula strive to teach these skills. Positive Discipline in the Classroom does so in a manner which stresses mutual dignity and respect for students and teachers and also promotes the democratic values that are at the core of our civic lives.
Workshop Participants Will:
Learn how to teach the Eight Essential Skills for effective class meetings to students.
Explore motivations for behavior and learn respectful, encouraging ways to be kind and firm at the same time when faced with challenging behaviors in classrooms and group settings.
Become familiar with research-based tools to effectively lead a classroom or mediate a conflict based upon cooperation, problem-solving, and mutual respect.
Learn how to empower students to look for solutions and do the right thing even when no one is looking.
Learn the Teacher Helping Teacher Problem Solving Steps, an effective tool for ongoing training and support for both teachers and support staff.
