Are you concerned about students who are unmotivated, disruptive, off task, argumentative, and so on? If so, this session may be for you!
This presentation is designed to assist teachers in constructing a plan for increasing student motivation, improving behavior, and increasing student responsibility. Participants will learn basic principles of classroom management, behavior management, and an instructional approach to discipline. The focus is on being proactive rather than reactive. General and special education teachers in grades K through 12 will find this content practical and immediately useable.
Topics will include:
- Establishing rules and enforcing them effectively
- How to teach students to behave in a mature and responsible manner
- How to use positive feedback to increase student motivation (even with students who do not like praise.)
- Using structured motivation systems to “boost” positive behaviors
Participants will conduct a self-assessment of their current level of implementation of five classroom management strategies. For those strategies that can be improved participants will develop a plan for implementing those techniques in their classroom to improve student behavior.
Available for one hour of PD credit.
