Published on

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.

  • We should “Send students away… with at least as favorable an attitude toward the subjects taught as when the first arrived.”
  • McClusky
  • Redirecting is taking a behavior that cannot be otherwise modified and channeling it to have positive results. Giving the "know it all" a small group to runUse of cell phones or social media to classroom redirected to use in the educational program.Chit-Chat redirected to small group work
  • This is about developing the practical skills that providers need in the real world like dynamic problem solving, communication, team-building, critical thinking, and self-direction. This is not about investing in technology; this is about investing in students and the care they will provide to our communities.
