In this professional development course, you'll get the teacher training you need to deal effectively with serious discipline problems and help even the most challenging students you're teaching make more responsible choices. You'll learn how to use a new research-based six-step approach to solve severe and chronic discipline problems such as bullying, fighting, using abusive language, stealing, and refusing to work. We'll look at numerous real-life examples set in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms so you can see how to put the ideas into action in your own teaching situation.
- Explore how chronic and severe discipline problems are the result of unfulfilled basic psychological needs.
- Establish and implement a classroom discipline plan that you develop in cooperation with your students.
- Discover what makes teaching time-outs unique and how to apply the process to chronic and severe problems in the classroom.
- Explore how class meetings can be used to build a relationship between you and your students and help solve common problems.
- Recognize problems common to students who are in their early elementary and middle childhood years.
- Learn to spot the warning signs for violent behavior, what to do if involved in a violent situation, and steps to take to prevent violent incidents.
- Delve into problems in classroom discipline resulting from substitute teaching, ADD, and academic problems.
- Master how to implement preventive techniques for problems faced both in and out of the classroom.
