Discipline in the Secondary Classroom (1 or 2 days) – Best suited for high school teachers, but may also be appropriate for grades 6-8. “DSC” is the high school equivalent to CHAMPS; it offers the same approach and best practices, though the reading experience may be a bit different. Teachers are guided through the decision-making processes necessary to structure the classroom in a way that reduces the opportunity for misbehavior, teach expectations to students, monitor behavior, build positive relationships, and respond effectively to emergent misbehavior. This content is focused on the universal strategies for all students, leaving the teacher with more time and energy to incorporate individual interventions for specific students unsuccessful in the classroom environment.
