Professional development workshop

Rethinking punishment

Amber Charter School, 220 East 106th Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues)

It is critical for educators to identify student behavior that impedes learning, and apply interventions that both promote positive student attitudes to learning and teach social skills.

In this workshop, participants will practice strategies to teach students to manage anger, promote social skills, engender positive attitudes towards learning, and modify behaviors that impede learning. The session will provide teachers opportunities to reflect on current instructional practices and practice research-based interventions to address student behavior.
