Bancroft’s “Ed of the Class” Webinar Series
Dealing with Difficult Students…Keys to Handling Disruptive Behavior
Date: Wednesday, October 14, 12p,-1pm

Aggression, acting out, interrupting- all teachers have their patience tested by disruptive students. Constantly disciplining students can not only affect teaching and learning, but it can negatively impact the overall environment of the classroom. The best way to manage disruptive behaviors in the classroom is to identify appropriate behavior interventions and to utilize the strategies that de-escalate unwanted behaviors.
