What You Will Learn

Responsibility-Centered Discipline principles have been implemented in several hundred schools throughout North America – often with eye-opening results.  RCD schools report office referrals down as much as 90 percent and suspensions virtually eliminated. 

Student discipline situations have a way of intensifying quickly, and before an educator realizes what is happening, an annoying situation can escalate into a full-blown crisis.  A core understanding of Responsibility-Centered Discipline is that teachers can be equipped to prevent these challenging moments from escalating and prepared to respond to varying levels of intensity. In this webinar, Responsibility-Centered Discipline creator Larry Thompson gives an introduction to RCD principles and provides tools and methodologies to help educators become masters of challenging student discipline moments.

Another core understanding of Responsibility-Centered Discipline is that traditional disciplinary systems and time-based consequences do little to help students become more responsible for decisions they make or to encourage them to take ownership of their own academic success.  In this informative webinar, Larry Thompson will provide school-proven methods for modifying long-term student behavior and building a responsible school culture.

Learning Objectives:
In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why current systems are failing
  • The competing theories in most schools
  • The difference between obedience-based discipline and Responsibility-Centered Discipline
  • How to build foundations for change
  • Using time to create responsible students
  • Implementing your personal guiding filters
  • The “Give ’em Five” approach to managing challenging moments

This Webinar will provide handouts and activities to assist you as you process your learning.   These activities will help you make a plan to try these new practices with your students.

Webinar Highlights:

  • Methods for school-wide consistency
  • Reflecting on your current disciplinary methods (obedience vs. responsibility)
  • Setting the foundation for classroom expectations
  • Creating your own “Give ’em Five” vocabulary for challenging moments
  • Key steps toward becoming a master of challenging moments

This 90-minute webinar will be informative and entertaining.  Responsibility-Centered Discipline creator Larry Thompson is a nationally recognized principal and will keynote the upcoming National Conference on School Discipline.  Audiences relate to his presentations partly due to his current understandings of school-discipline situations.  Time will be reserved at the end of the webinar for questions from the audience regarding their own particular challenges.
