Removing Low Level Disruption
Low-level disruption is the bane of the school teacher’s working life. This course will offer realistic solutions that have been proven to work for keeping students on task and minimizing costly low-level disruption. We will engage with six methodologies to prevent hundreds of hours being wasted by students’ off-task behavior. This isn’t a behavior management course that sells just a single way of dealing with all cases of low-level disruption. Quite the opposite, it will provide a variety of solutions to the low-level disruption that will be demonstrated and teachers can reflect upon which technique works for them.
