Dealing with Difficult Students Part III

Engagement Details


Teachers make split second decision during the course of each day, when it comes to intervening with problem behavior. Whether to address the student in the moment or in private is a crucial choice that can influence outcomes both in the short and long term. The primary audience for this learning are educators in grades k-6.


  1. Learn important guidelines in determining the best time and manner of working through problematic behavior.
  2. Discover effective methods to reduce disruption and increase students' motivation to contribute appropriately.
  3. Become more aware of the thoughts and feelings that exist and can be elicited to improve relationships and behavior in the classroom.

As educators are more likely to invest their personal time, money, and energy into their work, support both inside the classroom is required.
