This workshop is for teachers who want to learn classroom management skills to build their student's sense of community, prepare them for successful living, and increase academic achievement, while getting control of the classroom without punishment, bribes or rewards!
Positive Discipline in the Classroom eliminates punishments and rewards (external locus of control) while providing many alternative tools that teach student skills for self-discipline, responsibility, resiliency, and problem-solving, (inner locus of control) in a climate of caring based on connection before correction, kindness and firmness, dignity and respect. A prominent feature is the use of class meetings where teachers and students learn to see every problem as an opportunity to find non-punitive solutions to problems. When students are involved in problem solving, they feel a sense of belonging and significance that motivates them to follow guidelines they help create. The fact that Positive Discipline in the Classroom can significantly reduce discipline problems and bullying is an important fringe benefit. The primary benefit is that PDC helps students learn "social interest" (sincere concern for others, their community, and their environment) and provides experiences that enhance academic learning and the development of life skills that will help them be successful throughout their lives.
