Event Description

Yes, Football Can Teach You To Get Problem Students On Track

Every teacher is confronted with disruptive student behavior. Students may be late for class, talk inappropriately, and behave rudely. Such disruptions impede student learning on a daily basis. But managing difficult students—and motivating them to achieve their academic goals—is no small task . If you’re feeling burnt out and scraping the bottom of the barrel for innovative strategies to deal with your classroom troublemakers, look no further.

Education expert Aaron Daffern offers a fresh approach to structuring engaging and quality instruction—within a positive classroom environment. In this information-packed audio presentation, Daffern uses the metaphor of football, to tackle the three separate phases of classroom management: offense, defense, and special teams.

After attending this audio event, you will understand how to create an engaging classroom environment that encourages positive behavior and curbs misbehavior. You’ll learn exactly what to do—and what not to do—during a confrontation with a disruptive student. And you’ll know how to eliminate key causes of poor behavior and decrease off-task behavior in the first place. Yes, it’s time to suit up and take your classroom leadership to the next level—using the tactics that 30+ years of education research say most motivate students to learn.
