Positive Discipline in the Classroom, Become a Certified Positive Discipline Classroom Educator by Joy Marchese, Dubai
Workshop hosted by Joy Marchese
This workshop provides educators across all educational contexts, the opportunity to develop an understanding of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) though a practical ‘hand-on’ approach. Each collaborative session enables participants to develop current practice and develop strategies for successful implementation.
5-6 November 2021
The workshop will provide teachers with the concepts and skills necessary to successfully implement effective class meetings that create a classroom which enhances cooperation, collaboration, problem solving skills, conflict resolution, communication skills, accountability, responsibility, self discipline, self-esteem, and mutual respect. This workshop will also introduce Positive Discipline methods that are designed to teach students’ essential life skills and important perceptions of courage, confidence, and capability. The fringe benefit is the elimination of most discipline problems and the opportunity to focus on academic achievement.
Effective discipline teaches self-discipline from within the student, an “inner locus of control”, by helping the student figure out what causes problems and how to solve them. Punishment teaches an “external locus of control”: where a student depends on punishment or rewards from others as motivators. Effective discipline means using methods that teach important life skills such as cooperation, respect, concern for self and others, and problem solving skills.
