Better Behavior: School-Wide Implementation
July 29, 2022
As year two of the pandemic comes to a close, disruptive behavior has been identified as the number one issue impacting student success and educator well-being. For educators around the globe, addressing student behavioral issues and identifying the rationale for such behavior has emerged as a source of frustration and anxiety.
Dating back to Bob Marzano’s (2003) meta-analysis, researchers have long established that classroom management is the single variable with the largest impact on student achievement.
In this 3-hour session, Greg Wolcott, author of the best-selling book Significant 72: Unleashing the Power of Relationships in Today’s Schools, will help school leaders understand the components that make up an effective educational ecosystem where all student needs are met, student misbehavior is reduced and student engagement is enhanced.
Participants in this session will:
Discover the six key research-based components to creating effective behavioral support systems within schools
Understand the impact consistent routines and procedures (within each classroom and across the building) have on reducing challenging behavior and increasing student success.
Learn effective interventions and supports to help our neediest learners, and
Leave with a Schoolwide Behavior Blueprint that will serve as an implementation plan for behavioral improvement for the coming school year.
