Institute for Problem Solving
Positive Discipline Training for Classroom Teachers
Positive Discipline in the Classroom is a research-based classroom management program that empowers teachers with skills to build their students’ sense of community, prepare them for successful living, and increase academic achievement. Experiential learning methods give you skills to help students practice better cooperation, social skills, self-direction, responsibility, and mutual respect in the classroom. This type of problem solving approach has been shown to promote high academic achievement.
The Peace Resource Center has trained over 800 educators, principals, and support staff and 21 school systems in Positive Discipline. If you would like to register for an upcoming workshop click here.
