Each seminar participant will leave this session motivated and inspired to use the strategies that will be shared.

Evidence

Surveys of 300 New York public school teachers, within the past several years found that the secret to effective discipline is proactively building relationships, not reacting punitively to student misbehavior. Research further suggests that assumptions cannot be made that all teachers come to the learning environment with effective classroom management skills, and even if they do, learning to apply those skills in a collective, coherent way is important for everyone. This training cites the work of Robert Marzano who states that the one area of success in a classroom that must be mastered in classroom management.
