Safe & Civil Schools Virtual Courses are designed to help educators at all levels learn research-based tools to improve student behavior

While everyone is working to create social distance, you may have a luxury rarely afforded before—time for online professional development. We encourage you to consider using this time to provide vital learning for yourself and your staff.

Safe & Civil Schools has been working to create a variety of web-based training options. Below are possible offerings at the individual, classroom, and schoolwide levels. 

CLOSED Session I: Connecting with Kids During a Time of Disconnect (March 1)

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED FOR THIS SESSION

The need for connection and community is primal, as fundamental as the need for air, water, and food. Dean Ornish’s quote reminds us that we are prewired to seek connection. But whether reflecting on a time of intermittent virtual instruction or dealing with the ever-present distraction of social media, we can feel even more isolated. The need to connect with others, and especially our students, has become more critical than ever. In this session, attendees will learn practical strategies to build meaningful relationships with students and colleagues and create a connection to the campus for all stakeholders.

Session II: Correcting Mild Misbehavior Fluently (March 8)

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED

Even in the most well-designed classrooms, students will still push boundaries. Putting connections over corrections, this session will help educators recognize what gets in the way of fluent corrections and create a menu of responses to mild misbehaviors. Preplanning reactions to student misbehavior will increase the likelihood that educators are able to respond in a calm, brief, and consistent manner. When educators know how to respond to different types of misbehavior ahead of time, it is less stressful to decide in the moment. Fluent corrections ensure that the flow of instruction is maintained, impacting the learning of every student in the classroom.

Session III: Addressing Apathetic Behavior (March 15)

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED

From time to time, even the most motivated student can display apathetic behavior. At worst, they do nothing, and at their best, they may do just enough to get by. The goal for this session is to look at specific behaviors that are manifested through general apathy, such as boredom, helplessness, and withdrawn behavior, among others. Especially if these behaviors are interfering with a student’s academic or social success, a more intentional intervention may be warranted. This session is intended to look specifically at interventions that will help students demonstrate an increase in motivation.

Session IV: Addressing Students Talking Inappropriately (March 22)

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED FOR THIS SESSION

In all classrooms, there are times students find themselves in trouble for talking to the wrong people at the wrong time about the wrong thing. In this session, we’ll explore all the ways students challenge us when talking inappropriately. From students arguing with the teacher and each other to inappropriate humor and to general excessive talking, this session will look at intentional interventions to curb these behaviors and others. The goal is for students to learn to manage their behavior so the amount of talking, the way they talk, and the volume of their voices stays within acceptable levels for the teacher’s classroom.
