Support Staff Working Together – Eastern Time

December 16, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm


Students learn and grow best the adults in their community work together to support them. In this workshop, participants will learn how to apply Responsive Classroom principles and practices in non-classroom spaces, such as the cafeteria, after school programs, and on the bus, in order to create consistency between adult actions and student expectations throughout the day.
Specifically, participants will learn:

  • The importance of creating a safe, predictable environment in non-classroom spaces
  • Communication strategies to help students meet expectations, develop SEL skills, and show respect for others
  • The characteristics of talking so students will listen
  • How to write, share, and enforce rules that support positive student behavior
  • How and when to use Interactive Modeling to teach behavioral expectations in their non-classroom environment
