Calm/Assertive Academy

FOR Teachers • Classroom Aides • Pre-Service Teachers

Research has shown the importance of giving students choices and the importance of building relationships as a means of creating a positive, happy learning environment where students feel loved and supported. These students are more able to live within the parameters and expectations set by their teachers and principals.

Calm/Assertive Procedures are specific and explicitly taught procedures, routines, and rituals designed to allow educators to effectively build relationships and give healthy control in school. Upon completion of this course, educators will be equipped with three weeks of specific lesson plans to create and maintain procedures for building relationships and sharing control with even the most difficult students.

"Scott is very engaging and was a teacher for several years. One of the things he discusses is teachers
taking care of their own discipline whenever possible. My office referrals have dropped dramatically this year."
-Chris Elwood, Principal, Mt. Ayr, Iowa

"The Calm/Assertive techniques that we now use have completely transformed my teaching and our days are now infinitely more positive and productive. My students understand that I cannot and will not ever make them do anything. They are free to choose their behaviors and they know consequences logically and naturally follow negative behaviors. It really is that simple."
-Melanie Knapp, Mt. Ayr, Iowa

"I've been teaching for 13 years and finally feel like I have access to the skills I need to help children be responsible for their own behavior and be aware of what their choices are, and that their choices matter."
-Eileen Walsh, Beijing, China

Conference Details

This three-day conference will teach educators procedures and strategies for building relationships with kids, creating ownership of the classroom, and for sharing control with students on the teacher’s terms so that students do not try to take control on their terms. These procedures will have consequences for kids who do not follow the procedures woven into the fabric of the procedure itself. The conference will be completely hands-on and totally interactive. Teachers will walk out of this conference with lesson plans for the first three weeks of school that will set the stage for a successful school year!

Are you a parent, coach, homeschooler, or just someone who wants to be more effective with kids?
