This session will examine the positive changes that a "Responsive Classroom" approach can have on a learning environment.  You’ll learn about the evidence-based way to model any skill or routine/transition/rule for maximum retention (so awesome!), including how to start a school year off with long term success in mind. You’ll discuss the impact that words have on students and learn about communication techniques that help maintain high expectations without major conflict. You’ll dive into the power of student choice and voice, and review why a student-centered approach is the key to success for students.
You’ll leave with class management ideas, resources and the ability to introduce some of these concepts to your students next week!
Objective One: Gain an understanding of the Responsive Classroom approach and learn how to interactively model content.
Objective Two: Examine how our words and choice/voice inpact student outcomes.
Objective Three: Review student-centered best practices.
