Kagan Win-Win Discipline
Facilitated by Tom Searl

Have you ever considered ways to view classroom disruptions as a learning opportunity? When we meet students’ needs or give them respectful and responsible strategies for dealing with their unmet needs, disruptive behaviors decrease. Instead of searching for ways to just end disrupting behaviors, let’s teach our students responsible behaviors and life skills. In this Kagan Win-Win Discipline workshop, we will identify four types of disruptive behaviors and find out what to do in those moments. Most importantly, we will learn to follow up and prevent future classroom disruptions. Join us as we gain a new perspective on discipline problems and come away with tools that really work!

Participants will build community while

  • Focusing on applicable strategies
  • Discuss best practices for a classroom community
  • Reflecting on current practice
