Topic 5 Low-Profile Intervention
This session emphasizes not confronting a student in front of his peers.
In a confrontation of this kind there are no winners. You are there to teach
each student, not embarrass them. An effective teacher will not reward
students that misbehave by making them the center of attention.
Techniques of intervening in, and stopping, student misbehavior tactfully
and subtly are discussed.
Topic 6 Assertive Discipline
This was made widely known by Lee Canter. This session will introduce

Topic 7 Assertive I-Messages
This session gives methods for the teacher to focus the child’s attention on

want you to open your book to page 56 and....”or” I need for you to keep
your legs under your desk....” When phrased in this manner, the child
has little to say in defense.
Topic 8 Humanistic I-Messages
These are usually expressions of the teacher’s feeling. “When you yell
out your answer it distracts my thinking, which is frustrating.” This gives a

teacher, and how the teacher feels about the behavior.
Topic 9 Positive Discipline
Gives strategies how to word your rules and policies in a positive manner.
Tell the students what you want them to do - not what you don’t want them
to do. When you see good behavior acknowledge it verbally or with a
positive nod, wink, or smile.

students that it is alright to disobey the rules. Teachers are role models,
both in and out of the classroom. The teacher that has well organized
lessons will teach their students the success of being organized.
Topic 11 Quality Instruction
The greatest deterrent to poor behavior is quality instruction. If the child is
captivated and involved, there will be little time for misbehavior. The
teacher may then redirect the child by suggesting that the child will not
participate in the day’s events. Tips and techniques for rigorous, relevant
