You have tried everything to help a challenging student change, but the problem behavior and poor school performance continue.
What do you do?
As an educator you do the only thing you can do: Try harder. You maintain the relationship and try a different approach.
Would you like the opportunity to step away from all the daily frustrations and get a fresh perspective on the kids who test you the most?
Join Jeffrey Benson, author of Hanging In: Strategies for Teaching the Children Who Challenge Us Most, for a 2-hour webinar that will guide you in rethinking how you work with challenging students. Often, there is more than one issue and no simple fix for helping challenging students-which is exactly why they are challenging. Growth happens at its own unhurried pace.
Jeffrey will coach you in how to “hang in” by focusing on students’ strengths and redirecting your efforts to supporting those strengths through changes in the classroom and school environment and better leveraging your resources. He will share structures and procedures that support everyone in “hanging in” through the unpredictable process of growth. Learn how to identify the skills and habits a specific student must master and how to nurture and prompt the development of those skills that will slowly but surely lead to personal growth.
