Classroom Management: Conquering the Conundrum

Date: October 4, 2023

Place:  Medinah Shrine Center (550 Shriners Drive, Addison Illinois)

Time:  8:30am – 3:00pm

Finding effective classroom management strategies that actually result in positive student behaviors often prevents teachers from being the instructional leaders they want to be. How do you respond to difficult behavior in the moment? What is the best way to prevent students from acting out in the first place?

Midwest Principals’ Center invites you to join Scott Ervin and his team as they address these concerns and share the path to success.  During this one-day workshop, participants will be given the essential Behavioral Leadership tools to effectively build relationships, share control, and teach positive behaviors with students, no

matter how young/old or how difficult they are. During this highly interactive workshop, participants will be given explicit instruction for preventing, mitigating, and calmly responding to negative behaviors and fostering positive, prosocial student behavior. Included in this workshop will be ways to:

  • Organize your physical classroom to support positive classroom management

  • Build positive teacher-student relationships

  • Share control with students in a way that best fosters their autonomy

Classroom teachers, instructional coaches, building and district leaders are encouraged to attend. Join Scott Ervin and his team on the path to success— creating calm and engaging classrooms and empowering teachers to become the professionals they always wanted to be.
