The Conflict Within: At-Risk Teaching
A workshop with Michael Myers. No, NOT THAT Michael Myers!
Are you willing to take the risk to take a look at yourself before you try to look at the problems before you? This self-reflective, role-playing workshop answers that query while providing classroom management skills for instructors on two levels: First, by challenging teachers to learn more about themselves, their personal baggage and what makes them tick before getting ticked off in the classroom; and secondly by providing practical tools and techniques to use in the classroom to manage immediate and long-term behavior problems.
Most people run from conflict because they don’t know how to respond to it. This informative and inspirational session uses reflective improvisations and role-plays to develop listening and speaking techniques you can immediately employ to manage conflict. "The Conflict Within" training focuses on the factors that cause disagreements and uses role-playing improvisations and theatre listening techniques to develop practical skills to improve communication with students, colleagues, and family.
Perfect training for teachers, support staff, paraprofessionals, non-instructional and non-certified personnel (i.e. bus drivers, cafeteria employees), administrators, board members, and parents.
