What You Will Learn

Among the hottest topics in education today is “Discipline,” and recent news has been riddled with “discipline gone awry” – all while educators are challenged with the seemingly insurmountable task of keeping order in their classrooms and improving academic achievement for all students.  Classroom behavior problems are a very real issue for most teachers, and consistently reported as one of the top causes for teacher burnout.   Today’s inclusive classrooms – which feature multiple learning styles and behavioral accommodations – can make classroom management even more challenging.

In this timely 90-minute webinar, educators will be guided through schoolwide evidence-based discipline practices which have helped schools report reductions in office referrals of up to  90 percent, while almost eliminating suspensions.  Author Larry Thompson will reveal tested strategies for defusing the most challenging moments with all students, especially those with special needs.

As a former administrator, special needs teacher, regular ed teacher and coach, Mr. Thompson will discuss strategies that work with both the general population and special needs students.  He will discuss Responsibility-Centered Discipline strategies that will help  teachers and administrators will learn how to keep all students in class -- so the student can grasp the material and the teacher, administrator and school can focus on exceeding academic targets.
