LARRY MILLER will be the key presenter
at the 2009 Love and Logic workshop.
What is Love and Logic? Love and Logic is a common sense approach to classroom management and schoolwide discipline planning that focuses on handing back to children the problems they cause and replacing the typical educator responses of anger, lectures, threats, or repeated warnings with empathy followed by logical consequences. In short, Love and Logic is what every educator and parent wants, a DISCIPLINE APPROACH THAT BUILDS SELF DISCIPLINE.
The consistent application of the philosophy and approach produces the following results:
- Students increase their sense of responsibility for their actions
- Students own and solve their behavioral problems
- Students learn how to handle peer pressure, bullying, and teasing
- Educators recognize and address students’ four basic needs
- Educators generate positive responses from negative students
The broader schoolwide aims of Love and Logic training include:
- Establishing true consistency in discipline throughout the school
- Replacing punishment with learning opportunities (natural consequences)
- Helping to motivate students to learn and behave in the classroom
- Helping create learning environment where students are self disciplining
- Increasing student achievement
- Bringing more JOY to classrooms and the school
Love and Logic aligns with the principles of human behavior and learning presented in LEAD's Instructional Leadership Academy, particularly Motivation, Reinforcement, and Attribution.
Who should participate in Love and Logic? The class is designed for elementary, middle, and high school leadership teams. The team might consist of the principal, counselor, and one or two teacher leaders. Team members should be willing to help train other staff (teachers as well as support staff) in their own schools. Superintendents and other school personnel may want to participate to expand their awareness in order better support the Love and Logic approach throughout the school district.
What is the training format? To balance the need for in-depth learning and minimize time away from school, Love and Logic will be presented in one two-day module. The first day will consist of an overview of Love and Logic with practical ideas for implementation. The second day will feature concurrent sessions in the morning, providing particpants to experience a variety of choices. The afternoon will focus on implementing love and logic in your school and building an implimentation plan.
