“Managing a classroom was way different and way more difficult than anything I’d done before.”
“As a young teacher, I was nearly run out of the profession due to a poorly run school, unruly students and my own seriously inadequate classroom-management skills…”
“All I wanted to do was teach but it seemed like that was never going to happen…”
Do these comments sound familiar? Good classroom management is critical to creating an environment conducive to effective teaching and learning. But how do you achieve it?
Educational consultant and speaker Charity Carter will share her student-inspired and classroom-tested methods for achieving an optimal classroom environment during this 90-minute webinar. Charity will cover the three components of what she calls “Student Led Discipline” – classroom environment, classroom setup and classroom employment – and how these factors work together. She will do a deep dive into the classroom environment component – revealing why this particular piece is critical to success.
As a new teacher, Charity was challenged by a group of students with whom she was struggling to connect. So, she asked them what to do and was surprised to learn that they wanted a lot more control than they were given. She made a decision to think “outside the box” and created a way for her students to take responsibility for nearly everything from a classroom management perspective – from taking attendance to handling behavior issues – leaving her free to teach.
During this webinar you will learn:
- How to establish a network of student support within your classroom
- How implementing a classroom management program such as Student Led Discipline promotes student engagement
- How to use student leadership to significantly reduce behavior problems and discipline issues

Dr. William Noel says the ability to create relationships that lead to a welcoming and productive learning environment can be replicated – and that smiling and being “PASIYV” will a go a long way in building rapport with students.
Dr. Noel is Director of Student Support & Disciplinary Review Office for Henrico County Public Schools. He will conduct a breakout session entitled How to Reach the (Sometimes) Hard-to-Reach in Las Vegas.
Scholars struggle to consistently define and distinguish the terms, but educators agree on the need to transform both “climate” and “culture” to improve academic outcomes. This event features practical, real-world initiatives that are successfully transforming the quality, character and personality of schools. It showcases programs, assessments and tools proven to improve school culture and climate. Evidence-based and research-based interventions will be introduced, while the forum also highlights high-potential efforts currently being implemented in the laboratory of everyday school life.

A message from Larry Thompson:
Larry will deliver a pre-conference session entitled Closing the Exits off the Road to Responsibility: Supportive, Non-Exclusionary Discipline in Atlanta.
The At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies that educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students experience success in school. More than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). Millions more are considered at-risk because they exhibit ongoing disciplinary problems, impulsive behavior, truancy issues and have become frustrated or disengaged. The long-term cost of failing to engage these students is tremendous, since they are much less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Join us in Atlanta to gain valuable insights and to explore practical ways to help this critical portion of your school’s population. REGISTER NOW!
