October 5 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Class is held on two Saturdays: 10/5/19 and 10/12/19
The ten hour workshop focuses on Conscious Discipline, a comprehensive emotional intelligence and classroom management program based on current brain research, principles of child development and developmentally appropriate activities.
Conscious discipline moves teachers from judging children to describing their actions and efforts. It is based on safety, connection and problem solving, transforming rewards and punishment into critical thinking. A teacher who effectively practices conscious discipline is able to transform competitive environments into caring school families, troubled children into caring class members, and curious children into compassionate, happy learners.
There are seven basic skills of Conscious Discipline that will be put forth in the training session. These skills and strategies promote:
1. Self-regulation in children through connectedness
2. Cooperative problem solving
3. Empowerment for victims and bullies so that they can successfully function in an inclusive classroom environment
