Traditional classroom management generally has focused on rewards and punishments as a way of encouraging good behaviors and discouraging bad behaviors. Studies show, however, that when we empower students to correct misbehaviors themselves, the results show greater impact. How do we create cooperative and respectful classrooms that are more restorative, preserve and build trusting relationships and reduce conflict? This book will take us through the roots of the restorative practices movement and how to establish the classroom culture and climate we seek. We will also touch on some of Michael Grinder's work in Non Verbal Classroom Management as a support to this reading. This book study will be facilitated over two sessions. It is expected that participants will attend both sessions and read Better Than Carrots and Sticks: Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management by Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey prior to the second session. You must have the book in hand for the first session.

38. ENVoY Classroom Management Training with Michael Grinder

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 8/22/2022 to 8/23/2022

Post-pandemic education has seen a tsunami of resignations from veteran teachers while it does triage with newbies. One of many reasons is the change in student behaviors that have emerged. For many students today, they are two years behind their chronological age in developing the skills of being in community and managing their behaviors. What might we do? We need to refresh our classroom management. ENVoY is a classroom management program that cuts office referrals in half, reduces the request for Special Education testing, and increases teacher satisfaction. As Robert Marzano's research indicates - the single variable in successful classrooms is the relationship between teacher and student. And, not surprisingly, that relationship is best revealed during management. Takeaways:
•How to view the classroom through both curriculum and management tubes.
•Know the four phases of a lesson and understand how the key to success is the transition between the phases.
•Recognize when to be class-oriented and when to be individually-oriented.
•Two skills that will cut in half your energy spent on getting their attention.
•How to increase your relationships and expectations at the same time.
•How to separate your school life from home life so you can recharge your batteries better. *If your district is paying and you are an Oswego County district, please select Direct Bill *If your district is paying and you are outside of Oswego County, a cross contract will need to be initiated for permission to bill.
