      Master Classroom Management!

       

      Create Constructive Learning Environments and Increase Academic Achievement!

       

       Decrease Negative Student Conflicts!

       

       

       

      The data is compelling.

       Classroom management and student conflicts are challenging -- a main reason 50% of new teachers leave the teaching profession in their first 3 years in urban districts – and in their first 5 years nationally.

       Educators want to help students develop social and emotional competence. Research across hundreds of thousands of students K-12 shows conflict resolution education and social and emotional learning programs:

       ·         Increase students’ pro-social behavior

       ·         Decrease student disruption and discipline problems

       ·         Increase academic achievement 11-17%.

       

       In July 2012 Region 10 educators can participate in the Conflict Resolution Education in Teacher Education (CRETE) Training offered by Southern Methodist University and Richland Community College, partners in the National CRETE Project that serves over 25 universities and colleges in 12 states.
