This online course is for LAUSD teachers and is available for salary advancement and recertification. This professional development course will teach educators effective strategies for both preventing and responding to disruptive behavior from K-12 students. Module 1 focuses on strategies that aim to prevent defiant behavior from occurring at all. These strategies include establishing clear rules and procedures and using positive reinforcement to emphasize behavioral expectations.
Module 2 focuses on strategies for responding to disruptive behavior if and when it does occur. These strategies include a five-step verbal technique designed to stop disruptive behavior in its tracks, as well as a range of other strategies for handling low-level disruptions. The high quality course will also cover how to select and deliver effective consequences that encourage students to reflect on the disruptive behavior and make better choices about their behavior in the future.
The final project of this course asks teachers to create an action plan mapping out how to handle a common scenario of disruptive student behavior that they are currently experiencing or have frequently experienced in the past (and anticipate experiencing again).
