Janelle Wood is the founder of the Black Mothers Forum, a parents’ group in the Phoenix, Ariz.-area that was empowered by the Every Student Succeeds Act. (Black Mothers Forum)

This session is geared toward Individuals who interact with children and youth in various settings (schools, community programs, foster care, etc.). As an influential adult in a child’s life, it is important to build a strong and authentic relationship. Children need to be surrounded by caring people and know they are in a safe space. By recognizing a child’s/youth’s culture, past traumas and background it increases the capacity to create a safe and supportive learning environment in which that child/youth can excel academically and socially.

PBIS in the Classroom: It is Manageable

We will discuss implementation of Tier 1 PBIS systems in the classroom from a teacher point of view. During this session you learn about the reality of PBIS in the classroom and the tools that you can take to apply in your classroom. We will look at teaching expectations, reinforcing behaviors, and managing the behavior flow charts/accountability systems.

Jeremy Gibson, PBISAz Director of Community Connections 

Classroom/Home Matrices and Flowcharts for Teaching and Correcting Behaviors

Participants will actively engage in creating a classroom matrix that aligns to their school-wide or home expectations and addresses the specific areas, activities, and transitions within their classroom or home. Additionally, participants will develop a step-by-step sequential correction system for responding to minor misbehavior that aligns to the school-wide behavior flowchart or your child’s behavior at home.
