Judicious Discipline Summer Institute
Judicious Discipline provides a framework for educators to share their knowledge and authority with students. The power shared leads to knowledge for self-control.  The ideas and strategies addressed throughout this Summer Institute are designed to develop relationships of trust and care that empower students with the confidence to be accountable and responsible for their learning and performance.  The Summer Institute will be taught in a relaxed lecture/discussion/activity format involving small group activities and presentations.  The primary objective is to provide educators with tools and language that will apply immediately to the educator’s educational environment and help to establish excellent rapport with students & parents.  For additional details or to register email gathercoal@dock.net.  More information can also be found on their website HERE.
