What You Will Learn

In this informative 90-minute webinar, educator and national speaker Lisa Navarra will provide practical techniques for preventing and managing problem behaviors.   Once mastered, these positive behavior supports will become the backbone of effective classroom management – drastically reducing oppositional behaviors.

It’s Not Just Talk! will address:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Perception
  • Limit-Setting
  • Proxemics
  • Body Language
  • Para-Verbal Communication

This webinar will offer easy-to-implement techniques that can keep a simple directive from escalating into a teacher/student power struggle. When used properly, research has shown that such positive behavior supports can increase direct teacher instruction time as well as on-task student behavior. Educators can maximize the power of these supports by understanding the guiding forces of perception over their actions and the reactions of their students.  These communication skills will help educators to make impactful connections with students to help them maximize their academic and behavioral potential:

-Demonstrate the basics of emotional intelligence
