For discipline strategies to be truly effective, teachers must be able to act upon a problem and not just talk about it. It was Jean Piaget, the renowned developmental psychologist who discovered that children learn primarily through their experiences.

This is critical for teachers to remember when they are managing classroom behavior. It’s not what children hear about their behavior that will bring about a change and teach them a life lesson, but what happens as a result of that behavior.

In the classroom, the entire concept can be stated quite simply: Students may doubt what you say but will always believe what you do.

Unfortunately, most teachers still attempt to do the majority of behavior management with words. Actions, after all, require effort and commitment. Words are so much easier to use. But when teachers only use words to improve student behavior, they eventually become either punitive or permissive, neither of which work when it comes to helping students become responsible, self-directed learners.

In this webinar, Rick Morris, an award-winning educator and author, will show you how easy it is to use action-based strategies that demonstrate to your students you are serious about how they behave in your classroom.
