Classroom Relationships

Our human experience is based on relationships - between things and places, true - but mostly between people.  This session explores the complex interaction between relationships and behavior.  Teachers will develop co-regulation skills to create calm in stressful times, and better understand the emotions of their children.  Strategies to build confidence, reframe mindsets and promote pro-social behaviors will be presented.  Participants can expect to leave with knowledge and skills in their life- not just those in the classroom.

Intentional Teaching

This session centers on teaching methods to promote pro-social behaviors.  After laying the foundation for success with our previous modules, this course dives into the “nuts & bolts” of how teachers should facilitate activities in ways that lead to pro-social behaviors- the behaviors children need most to succeed in the world. Topics will include the Power of Play, the Power of Storytelling, and the Power of Conflict Resolution. Participants will return to their classroom armed with tactics to create more empathic and understanding children who can negotiate and resolve conflict on their own.

Understanding Behavior: ABC Easy as 123

The focus of this training is to guide teachers to better understand why behaviors happen in the classroom. It will examine the sequence of how behaviors occur, and then understand strategies to use within the classroom to shape behavior. Teachers will leave with antecedent strategies to take with them to use in their classroom to increase appropriate behavior and decrease challenging behaviors.
