Help for Billy Book Study

Image from
Join us in learning practical strategies that can be implemented the next day to respond to challenging behaviors that we are faced with in today’s classroom. The book study will be open to all, and time will be set aside for us to discuss and brainstorm solutions to the issues that you would like to see addressed related to student behaviors.

Two driving questions:

“What does the research say about brain development and trauma?”
“How can I respond as an educator?”

Notice there are two dates for each session listed as Session 1 - PM and Session 1 - AM.  The sessions will cover the same material, with the only difference being the discussion that happens, based on what is brought up by the group members.

Professional Learning Standards covered in these sessions:
Learning Communities: Professional learning that increases educator effectiveness and results for all students occurs within learning communities committed to continuous improvement, collective responsibility, and goal alignment.
Implementation: Professional learning that increases educator effectiveness and results for all students applies research on change and sustains support for implementation of professional learning for long-term change.
