On Wednesday, April 25, School Improvement Network hosted a webinar that described specific strategies for managing the classroom. The webinar, titled “Stuff You Can Use for Managing and Motivating All Students” was presented by long-time educator and speaker Rick Smith, an expert in classroom management strategies. Throughout the hour-long presentation, Smith outlined:
- How to prevent misbehavior
- How to intervene when kids are already acting out
- How to motivate students
- How to make positive connections with students
Smith’s presentation gets right to the heart of classroom management by describing the mental attitudes, emotional responses, and the physical postures that will accomplish each of the above outcomes.
“I would recommend this to any educator struggling with classroom management and discipline issues,” says webinar participant Scott Bowen. ”It was really fantastic.
