Difficult and challenging behaviors in schools have increased at an alarming rate, and this course gives educators the skills and strategies to create a safe and positive learning environment. Recent shifts in societal and cultural norms have given rise to reactions that can be injurious, uncivil, and discriminatory. Creating and maintaining positive and proactive school discipline plans while preserving societal values and norms is more challenging than ever. Zero tolerance policies provide impetus, but not tools to address problematic behaviors, make real change happen, and accomplish intended goals. Based on data and documented successes, this course offers a step-by-step process that maximizes teaching and learning and prevents problem behavior while establishing and maintaining desirable behaviors to enhance school success. You will learn how to collect data to shape ongoing behavior instruction, develop engaging lessons and activities to promote positive behavior, help children learn self-regulation, work productively and collaboratively with parents, and partner successfully with educators, school counselors, and administrators.
