Let’s face it, classroom management and working with students to display positive behavior in school is one of the most challenging aspects of teaching. Educators must continue to learn methods, practice strategies, and apply learning to improve and/or manage behavior in the learning environment. This is important so teachers can keep students safe, increase engagement with content, and improve the likelihood of academic success.

Theories and research-based best practices have come and gone. Many educators, parents, and other stakeholders have opinions about rewards vs. punishment, intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation, and the importance of teaching behavior. Educators must formulate their own thoughts and ideas related to behavior based on professional experience, training, and research. In this edWebinar, you learn:

  • Why proactivity is so important
  • Establishing a system of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
  • Setting and communicating expectations
  • Teaching social, emotional, and behavior skills
  • 10 strategies to create a relationship bank account
  • An abundance of positive and proactive teaching strategies that can take you through a successful school year

Every student comes to school with a distinct set of circumstances, and this session helps you create a classroom set up for success for ALL students. It’s time to unleash your students’ superpowers!

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers.
