Child Motivation and Engagement: Improving Classroom Management

Conference Year: 


Primary Speaker name: 

The first part of the workshop will focus largely on problems with how old ideas still play out in classrooms today (e.g., through sticker charts or card charts). Dr. Holland will also discuss a more current understanding of motivation called self-determination theory and will explore some of its practical applications—especially for classroom management, particularly improving student engagement and decreasing teacher stress. The second part of the workshop will address such topics as tattling, bathroom time, lining up, aligning with PBIS, persistent misbehavior, and behavior plans. Participants also will have time and opportunities to raise and discuss issues.

This special Pre-Institute Workshop is OPEN with new seats available even though the Institute is sold out. (You can attend the Workshop regardless of whether you're attending the rest of the Institute.) In addition to the Pre-Institute Workshop, the $100 fee includes breakfast and lunch.
