Powerful and Positive Behavior Support to Bring Out the Best in Each Student Every Day
Join Dawn D. Eidelman, PhD, as she explores how to understand the importance of building community as a guiding philosophy/framework of positive behavior support (works at all ages), connecting community building to high student EQ and academic achievement, understanding the 12 key strategies in the "Spirit of SEL Positive Behavior Toolkit," and begin exploring the first of these — “Know Yourself” with a Medicine Wheel activity and apply these findings
In this session, you’ll:
- Experience a discussion of the transformative impact of positive community building for student engagement — the key to positive behavior support
- Receive a train-the-trainer tool kit to promote the spirit of SEL in their classroom — or to share at the school or district level, adapted to their own SIP needs
- Learn about mistaken goals — and what different behaviors really reveal about student needs Strategies to redirect the focus, and teach love rather than fear
