Conducted a 70′ – workshop on basic Ecological Model management techniques for high school accounting teachers last Thursday in Rocky Hill. The 15 participants had never attended a session offering practical strategies for managing their students’ behavior. A unique power point module for ‘specialists‘ highlighted proactive techniques. Overwhelming positive response indicated the necessity for additional training on this topic. All districts need to provide this resource to art, music, business, and technology staff.
Dr. Don Perras’s Ecological Model provides teachers with a ‘magical’ toolbox to create effective learning environments. His practices are the greatest gift an educator could possess, and the single most important factor in students’ development.— Cathleen M. Greene, Ed.D.
