McCulloch’s webinar will outline the classroom management strategies that the most successful teachers have used to help their students focus, and motivate them to learn
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Classroom management is hard—it might just be the hardest thing a teacher is ever asked to do. Persuading a room full of students to cooperate can be many times more difficult than Shakespeare, calculus, or physics. How do some teachers do it? How do they get kids who don’t want to be at school to sit down and focus on their work?
On February 29 at 1 p.m. (Eastern Time), Emily McCulloch, CEO and Founder of Autism Training Solutions, will answer these questions in a free webinar that will help teachers develop the skills necessary to manage even the rowdiest, most resistant of classrooms. McCulloch’s webinar will outline the classroom management strategies that the most successful teachers have used to help their students focus, and motivate them to learn.
Over the past 15 years, McCulloch has trained thousands of teachers in classroom management strategies, and ways to modify student behavior. Her experience has taught her that no matter the struggle, every behavior can be addressed, and every classroom managed. In her webinar, titled “Training Educators to Do Behavior Assessments," McCulloch will share what she has learned over the years.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define and understand a range of student behaviors, and recognize why students are acting them out.
- Determine the psychological and situational motivations behind student behavior.
- Use effective strategies and tactics to better manage the classroom environment.
