Crack the Code to Being Kind and Firm in the Classroom
Presenter: Dina Emser
Session Description: Understanding how to be both Kind and Firm is one of the hardest practices for teachers to grasp because it is difficult to get past the idea that firm means harsh and kind means weak. In this session we will find ways to "change our minds" about classroom management. Classroom examples of being both kind and firm will be shared with specific steps teachers can take to embrace this style. Benefits of this style include more cooperation from students of any age and is also helpful when partnering with parents.
Building Positive Discipline Classroom Communities: Why SEL Matters Most
Presenter: Joy Marchese
Session Description: How can we create a safe and inclusive classroom community where every student feels a sense of belonging and significance? By developing SEL competencies, such as understanding and managing emotions, developing empathy, establishing and maintaining positive relationships, and making responsible decisions, students will have a more positive attitude toward themselves, others and school, show more positive social behaviours inside and outside of the classroom, and increase their academic performance as a result.
During this session I will share four essential Positive Discipline principles that build classroom community and help children become socially-emotionally competent human beings. This session will be experiential, fun, and applicable. You will leave feeling motivated and more equipped to apply Positive Discipline principles in your classroom.
Understanding the Four Goals of Students’ Challenging Behavior and How to Encourage Change
Presenter: Dodie Blomberg
Session Description: This super fun two-hour introduction and a deep dive into the Four Mistaken Goals of Misbehavior is not to be missed. Have you ever wondered WHY children do some crazy misbehaviors? This is workshop will help you identify the Four Mistaken Goals, understand the belief behind the "mis"behavior and many tools to help children (and you) move back towards more helpful behaviors.
Positive Discipline Tools for Teachers
Presenter: Jane Nelsen & Kelly Gfroerer
Session Description: The number one stressor for teachers who want to make a difference in the lives of their students is the time they spend dealing with misbehavior. Teachers from around the world have shared how Positive Discipline Tools for Teachers can save them time and stress—and make discipline encouraging and helpful instead of discouraging and stressful.
This session will help educators better understand the downside of using a reward and punishment system, and what to do instead to inspire and motivate students. Research shows that using rewards and punishment actually decreases internal motivation, cooperation, self-control, and independent problem-solving. Positive Discipline increases all of these important life skills.
