ASPDP teachers will learn how to create a classroom culture plan that establishes an orderly, yet exciting classroom. Participants uncover what motivates students to engage in learning and the underlying causes of misbehaviors that impede learning. They will develop stronger communication techniques that motivate students, ensuring that what is communicated is relevant, meaningful and engaging. Strategies are also shared that develop positive and trusting peer-to-peer, teacher-to-student, and teacher-to-parent relationships.
