Nationally acclaimed author and speaker Larry Thompson says students’ exits off the road to responsibility must be closed if you want to build a culture where students “own” their choices and behaviors.
Author of Roadmap to Responsibility, Larry Thompson will conduct a pre-conference session entitled Closing the Exits off the Road to Responsibility: Supportive, Non-Exclusionary Discipline in Las Vegas. He will also present a keynote session at the School Climate and Culture Forum.
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.
