Workshop Description:

Classroom Management has been rated as the most important variable to building and maintaining a high achieving classroom. The “lack of” student behavior and classroom management competencies cause educators to have high levels of stress and one reason why educators leave the profession.  Whether you are the new or seasoned educator, highly effective student behavior and classroom management strategies can make a significant difference for teacher and student success.

As educators, we have always believed students should take responsibility for their actions and that teaching citizenship is an important part of any curriculum.  Democracy in the classroom with Judicious Discipline strategies, however, takes that belief one step further---it assists educators to create a democratic classroom environment that respects the citizenship rights of students.  As a result, students learn and experience a model of discipline that emphasizes personal responsibility.

Ultimately, the practice of democratic principles guides students toward understanding and accepting a social contract with others.  Many educators who have familiarized themselves with the concepts of a judicious approach to classroom management, start off the first day by involving their students in setting up a democratic classroom.  They begin with a discussion of student rights, develop rules together based on student responsibilities flowing from those rights, and discuss with students the process of how things will be handled whey they act irresponsibly.  In these democratic classrooms, responsibility flows from a principled level of thinking where students learn to balance their individual freedoms with the welfare interests of others in and outside of the school community.
