About This Webinar

Join Julia Thompson, author, and Share My Lesson in this webinar on how to work successfully with defiant students.

One of the most challenging classroom management issues for most teachers involves students who are defiant and disrespectful. Whether the behavior is subtle or openly challenging, it's not always easy to know which course of action will allow teachers to support difficult students while at the same time minimizing classroom disruption. In this presentation, participants will learn strategies that can prevent defiant outbursts, techniques to resolve conflicts, and methods of helping students learn to self-regulate their behavior.
