A Level One student makes a mistake, is willing to take ownership of the problem and works well with the teacher to resolve the issue. A Level Two student resorts to arguing, denying, pointing out other students’ behaviors, ignoring the teacher or interrupting. A Level Three student is unable to maintain self-control. Despite the teacher’s strong skills to support and redirect, this student refuses to work through the issue.
This program focuses on supportive strategies – including Give ‘em Five, the Response-Ability Process and In-School Solutions – to “close the exits off the road to responsibility” for Level Two and Level Three students. Participants are challenged to create an Individual Behavior Plan for their most difficult student. The RCD Leadership webinar recording features fresh perspectives from RCD Creator Larry Thompson on Supportive and Responsibility-Centered Strategies for Your Toughest Challenges Post-Pandemic.
