We can create more peaceable classrooms and schools when we put the “peace(s)” together in thoughtful, compassionate, and intentional ways. Using the acronym of PIP we will consider the tasks of Prevention, Intervention and building Partnerships to create a more peaceable classroom and alleviate behaviors that cause problems in the classroom. Behavior more than academic diversity is what teachers often find most challenging. Management of problem behaviors is the most troubling issue facing schools as identified by both educators and the general public. We all learn best in a peaceful vs distressing environment. So where do we begin?
Finding the right balance between nurturing and reasonable limit setting is an on-going task for teachers and parents alike. Creating confident, competent, and compassionate children is the goal we all share. This course will examine the strategies for preventing as many troubling behaviors as possible; how to intervene based on our Montessori principles as a restorative approach and how we can develop partnerships with our parents and community members to resolve underlying issues. In a four-part prerecorded and two-part live sessions, participants will gain practical and strategic tools for building peaceable classrooms and schools that can benefit everyone in the most significant ways.
