Going Global--But Some Things Never Change

October 24, 2011

"Hell is empty. The devils are all here." ~Shakespeare

One of the most amazing aspects of modern life is how easy it is to reach out to other people in faraway places. In two days, I will be making a presentation about classroom discipline via the magic of a nifty company called Behaviours Needs in England and Skype. Except for the time difference and the wonderful British accents, I could be talking to teachers in my hometown.

One of the things that has always struck me as I have had the opportunity to listen to teachers in workshops in the various parts of the USA and abroad is what we all have in common--a sort of universal teacher language. From wonderful Worchester County on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to the equally wonderful city-state of Signapore and many places in between, I have had professional conversations with teachers who are concerned about their students. We worry about their lack of skills in reading, math, and writing. We worry about their social skills and their unrealistic goals. We worry when they want to sleep in class and when they sass us. We worry...And we especially worry about discipline issues. I worry about it so much, in fact, that I wrote my first book about how to make students behave themselves while they were in my class.

So, with that common language in mind, you may want to check out the free Webinar. In it, I address twelve key strategies of classroom discipline. You want want to join in and listen. At the end, I've put together an ebook of successful strategies to help teachers motivate students. It's a small compilation from all of my books and the new DVD for teacher trainers due out next month.

Here is what the cool folks at Behaviour Needs have to say about the Webinar. Feel free to join in. There is comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your classroom discipline issues--in fact there is an entire planet of educators who worry along with you!
