Whether at an amusement park, a grocery store, or a Pre-K classroom, our behavior is profoundly influenced by our physical surroundings. Anyone who has ever been stressed out by a cluttered room or felt relaxed and at peace in a luxury spa can attest to that. This session examines the connection between physical environments and human behavior. Teachers will learn research-based strategies for designing classroom spaces in ways that promote positive, pro-social behaviors and prevent challenging behaviors. In today’s world of uncertain school schedules and learning from home, it is more important than ever to consider the quality of our children’s learning environments.
Our human experience is based on relationships – between things and places, true – but mostly between people. This session explores the complex interaction between relationships and behavior. Teachers will develop co-regulation skills to create calm in stressful times, and better understand the emotions of their children. Strategies to build confidence, reframe mindsets and promote pro-social behaviors will be presented. Participants can expect to leave with knowledge and skills in their life- not just those in the classroom.
Understanding Behavior: ABC Easy as 123
The focus of this training is to guide teachers to better understand why behaviors happen in the classroom. It will examine the sequence of how behaviors occur, and then understand strategies to use within the classroom to shape behavior. Teachers will leave with antecedent strategies to take with them to use in their classroom to increase appropriate behavior and decrease challenging behaviors.
