Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students Radio Program
Helping behaviorally challenging kids in a classroom...while attending to the diverse needs of the other students...while trying to make sure they all do well on high-stakes testing...can be a daunting challenge, one not met by simply increasing detentions, suspensions, and expulsions and referring behaviorally challenging students into the judicial system. Dr. Greene's model can help! Want to learn more about the model? Do you have questions about how to get the ball rolling on using the model in your classroom or school? Are you running into trouble in your attempts to use the model with a particular student? Having trouble getting colleagues to buy in? This is your opportunity to get your questions answered and listen to how other educators are using the model and overcoming some of the hurdles involved in responding more effectively to the needs of behaviorally challenging kids in schools. And the Listening Library contains recordings of these programs and provides a ton of useful information about various aspects of Dr. Greene's approach.
There's a new schedule for this program...it now airs live only on the first Monday of every month at 3:30pm (Eastern time), September through May.
