Students need to be able to self-regulate and control their behaviors in order to be ready to learn in their classroom. Neither the student themselves nor their classmates are able to learn in a classroom that is chaotic, unpredictable and disruptive. In this course, teachers will learn how to teach students to manage their emotions and anger. They will learn how to develop lessons and interventions that engage students and promote positive behavior. Participants in this class will know how to shape behavior instruction, work with the families of behavior-challenged students and collaborate with school social workers and psychologists to solve problem behavior in the classroom. Evidence-based interventions that are practical and ready to use are provided for the classroom teacher.
