SIOUX CITY, IOWA (June 19, 2018)—Educators are encouraged to save the date for Terrance M. Scott, Ph.D., who will present, "High Probability Strategies for Managing Student Behaviors: Classroom Management and Escalating Behaviors," on Nov. 20 at Northwest AEA in Sioux City from 8:30 to 3:30.
This session will provide an overview of high-probability practices for managing classrooms with an eye toward students with challenging behaviors. These foundational prevention practices will set the stage for a deeper discussion of how adults can most effectively respond to a range of misbehaviors using the same logic of probability. Specific misbehaviors and strategies will be demonstrated using video examples.
Dr. Scott is a professor and distinguished university scholar and the director at the Center for Instructional and Behavioral Research in School at the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville.
