All workshops meet teacher certification/re-certification requirements as defined by the South Dakota State Department of Education unless noted.

Summer 2016 Workshops

Discipline with Love and Logic July 1 - 2

Discipline with Love and Logic

Learn how to end power struggles with students and set limits that you can enforce. Learn to deal with small and large behavior issues with so much confidence that you look forward to working with difficult students. The techniques presented in this workshop will enable you to teach your students to own and solve their own problems, think before they act, and become responsibly independent. These easy to learn techniques will result in better relationships with students, parents and your administrators. With practice, you can utilize your new skills in your class on Monday morning.

Motivating Students to Achieve

Are you willing to spend a few hours of your time learning how to get your students to become intrinsically motivated to achieve? Would you like to get even your toughest students motivated to learn? Learn how the brain works to reinforce learning naturally and how you can use that knowledge to improve student achievement. This workshop will help you get your students thinking as much about learning as you do. Easy to learn but highly effective techniques can be applied immediately when you return to your classroom.
