Recharge Your Classroom Management Batteries

A seminar on proactive strategies to help educators decrease disruptions by investing in a three-tiered model of intervention. Dr. Riffel will share stories from the field and give research and evidence-based interventions and strategies that you can take back and use the next day with your students. The PowerPoint will be shared online during the training and available afterward. You may bring a computer and follow along and take notes. Feel free to go back to school and share what you learned with the rest of your staff.

Each participant will receive a book, mnemonic tools, and useful ideas that will ameliorate behaviors in the classroom. This training is geared at the classroom level and will cover the following topics:

  • Top ten rules of behavior
  • To change behavior, we need three strands of intervention: environmental cues, replacement behavior teaching, and consequence modifications
  • Universal classroom strategies
  • Tier two strategies for students who need booster shots
  • Tier three strategies for students who need intensive supports
  • Contingencies and reinforcements
  • Interventions from the field- all guaranteed to recharge your battery
