Assistant Principals Webinar: Better Than Carrots or Sticks: Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management
School administrators are a “go to source” for teachers who struggle with classroom management. Traditionally classroom management is viewed as a matter of encouraging good behavior and discouraging bad by doling out rewards and punishments. But studies show that when educators empower students to address and correct misbehavior among themselves, positive results are longer lasting and have a broader reach. Join in this enlightening webinar with Dominique Smith and discover a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioral issues together. As a school leader, gain a clearer understanding of how to help prepare teachers at all levels to ensure that their classrooms are welcoming, enriching, and constructive environments built on collective respect and focused on student achievement.
