"Eight teachers including our Principal from our small, PK-Grade 8 religious school in northwestern Wisconsin took a "Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support" course through SCT during spring/summer of 2013. As a result of the course, we learned much about PBIS and now we are continuing to develop and plan to implement a PBIS system. The instructor, Tammy Berg, worked with us along the way, and was extremely flexible in allowing us to work on many of the course projects as a team. Thank you Tammy! Looking forward to more professional development coursework with you in the future!"

Solving Friendship Problems:
A Teacher's Toolkit

Print Based Course Printed Course

In the academic setting, friendship and other social issues interfere with students' abilities to learn. Children feel left out, rejected, and are the victims of teasing, gossiping, and bullying. Other students lack the skills to make friends, keep friends, and at times fall to peer pressure. Often, these issues make it difficult for students to learn in the classroom and some students feel that their school is an unsafe place to learn. This course will offer educators strategies for helping students with essential friendship-building skills that kids need to find, make, and keep friends, as well as how to survive social pressures from peers. This course will also focus on the following issues: Why friendships are so important to children; Why friendship problems are so much more prevalent than in the past; How technological advances have affected the social lives of children; Steps parents and teachers alike can take in order to improve friendship skills; and What 25 of the most common friendship problems are, and how we can help students learn to deal with them within the classroom setting.
