How can one student’s behavior suddenly disrupt your classroom? Have you ever asked yourself this question in that lucid moment before the student triggered your own unproductive reactions and you failed to handle the situation properly?
Now’s the time to step away from the emotionally-charged context of the classroom to think about how you can best handle the problem behaviors that will arise throughout the school year.
Join “behavior doctor” Laura Riffel for a 2-hour webinar for all grade levels that will coach you in how to focus on the source or function of the behavior and keep your emotions out of your response. A compelling and authoritative speaker, Laura will give you lots of research-based “Tier 2” strategies grounded in the schoolwide positive behavior support model so that you can effectively respond to common problem behaviors in your classroom. These strategies include identifying and avoiding triggers for undesirable behaviors, creating group contingencies and group rewards (it’s been road-tested with thousands of students!) and deploying motivation techniques for non-compliant learners.
This webinar will focus on all levels of interventions for the classroom, from universal support with education and prevention, targeted interventions for minor disruptions, and “Tier 3” or intensive interventions for the more problematic disruptions. Laura has been working with these classroom management interventions for over 30 years as a teacher, administrator and coach and is eager to share her hard-won wisdom with you!
