Positive Discipline Techniques for the Classroom
With Educator and Facilitator, Anne Burger
Classroom discipline is very important for effective teaching and learning, yet it constitutes one of the biggest teacher challenges nowadays.
Part of what is causing teachers a great deal of stress is how to effectively discipline children. This is made all the more difficult by the fact that a teacher’s hands are largely tied as they have so few avenues open when it comes to dealing with bad behaviour, or even rewarding good behaviour. In addition, a good number of children come from extremely fractured home environments. As a result of this, parents tend to overcompensate their children out of feelings of guilt. For such children, any form of discipline is totally foreign and they will inevitably rebel when parameters are put in place. Teachers often feel as though they are facing a storm, quite alone and with little understanding of their point of view.
This webinar is designed to give teachers practical tips on how to take back control of their classrooms. Therein they will be able to teach more effectively and dramatically decrease the stress that they feel at the end of each day.
Some points that will be dealt with:
- Setting rules in the classroom or online
- Classroom management – who is in control
- Stars and stripes – effective reward and punishment within the parameters of your school’s discipline system
- Dealing with the parents
