Positive Discipline: Extinguishing the Fire- Classroom Management that Work!
OVERVIEW: Spending lots of instructional time putting out behavioral fires? This interactive workshop will offer ideas and suggestions on how you improve instruction by reducing negative behavior in the classroom. We will fill our extinguishers with Marzano’s suggestions on classroom management techniques that work along with refreshers on Dreikurs’ Four Goals for Misbehavior, Fredric Jones: Control through Positive Discipline, Linda Albert: Control through Cooperative Discipline, and other behavior management theories. It is time to redesign your rules and consequences so you can spend more time being a teacher and less time being a fireman!
In this workshop, participants will develop educators’ abilities to promote a positive classroom of respect and responsibility by creating learning alliances with students.
