Demonstrate how teachers can use proven disciplinary ideas and strategies in diverse classrooms!
Based on the third edition of Kay Burke's best-selling book What to Do With the Kid Who . . ., this guide gives staff developers and workshop leaders the tools to facilitate book study groups, seminars, and professional development events that demonstrate how teachers can proactively address common disciplinary issues before they become major problems. Facilitators will be able to show how teachers can establish a caring classroom climate that fosters a spirit of cooperation, respect, and love for learning while encouraging students to interact courteously with their teachers and peers. Participants will discover classroom management tips and RTI strategies, and electronic templates for 20 strategies from the book to address for students who have:
- Trouble accepting responsibility for their choices and actions
