Teaching Respect and Responsibility
Do you notice disrespectful, unself-responsible behaviors in students at your school? Are you hearing an increase in put-downs, sarcastic remarks, and rude suggestions? Have you seen students acting, talking, and thinking like victims, without taking responsibility for their own behavior?
If so, then this seminar is for you!
Respect and Responsibility don’t just happen. Not by luck, magic, or because you put a few character education posters in the hall and held an assembly to pass out awards to students of the month. Respect and Responsibility only occur in schools where the entire staff sets out to create them with intentionality, skills and a unified attitude.
At this seminar, your staff will learn to create a classroom atmosphere that models and invites Respect and Responsibility. Included are techniques for defining, teaching and debriefing respect issues so that students internalize the concepts. Skills to encourage self-responsibility and respond effectively to counter-productive behaviors are also included to help teachers react confidently.
This workshop is skill-based, practical, and can be put to use immediately to get your students choosing responsible, respectful behaviors.
