The Know-it-all. The Worrier. The Heckler. The Rambler. The Cheater. Is one rotten apple going to spoil your whole program? This program provides educators of all levels with insight into the sources of student issues as well as the mistakes that instructors commonly make that contribute to classroom unrest. Using lecture, role-play, and comedy, Rom Duckworth shows how educators can differentiate between difficult students and difficult behaviors, how to deal with immediate classroom problems, and what can be done to avoid trouble before it begins.

Teaching Formats:
-Lecture
-Q & A
-Role-Play

Learning Objectives: Students will learn:
- The application of differing instructional and disciplinary approaches based on an as-sessment of the students’ difficult behaviors.
- The primary policies and practices to have in place to prevent problem pupils.
- Key methods of targeting and eliminating difficult behaviors in the classroom.
- Keeping difficult students on track using the PREPS, LEAST and CCMP methods.
