The insights, advice, and strategies that will be shared are based on research and practical experience analyzing, restructuring, and transforming numerous school and afterschool learning environments.

  • Identify challenging behaviors (of both adults and children) that can be re-directed for positive outcomes
  • Analyze strengths and weaknesses of specific parts and times of educational environments that support positive behavior or allow problems to develop
  • Formulate a vision of improved educational programming and develop plans for teaching common, consistent expectations of all constituents
  • Understand the difference between discipline and punishment
  • Enhance your ability to communicate expectations, influence the capacity of front line staff to manage children, and create a program culture that leads to higher levels of achievement and satisfaction for everyone

Early childhood, Head Start, out-of-school-time, and school leaders, educators, and staff are invited to watch this edWebinar. Learn how to structure your learning environments to promote positive behaviors!
