This is a professional development package designed to assist staff with increasing their awareness of student behavior. Students can be taught how to control their negative emotions through thoughtful reflection. In order to make this happen, teachers should be trained in ways to help students pause during difficult situations. Teachers can develop the patience and courage to work with challenging students by adjusting their tone and vocabulary to encourage students to pause and reflect. This package contains a powerpoint for staff development, an agenda for use in a whole group environment, and scenarios for teachers to role play.
