Next Generation
Classroom Management Tools


workshop trainer Ruth Herman WellsSchool Skills Training can change your life, and the lives of your students.

School Skills Training interventions give you next generation classroom management strategies today. My name is Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. I'm the director of Youth Change Workshops, and creator of School Skills Training strategies.

School Skills Training means that you teach your youngsters how to be students, just like you teach your youngsters academic subject matter.

Amazingly, most school districts have carefully crafted, elaborate plans for teaching academic content, but no curriculum at all to teach the foundation School Skills that youngsters need to fully take advantage of academic offerings.

School Skills Training should include teaching students to be motivated, appropriately dressed, how to interact with other students, how to ride the bus, behave in the hallways, and also how to complete assignments, attend every school day, and have acceptable teacher interaction skills.

If you try it, you'll find that teaching kids to be students works much better than just stating the rules and expectations. Without having School Skills, students will struggle to follow the rules and avoid consequences. With School Skills, students are practiced veterans at performing the skills they need for school, and now can achieve their full potential.


Next Generation Classroom Management Interventions

You're going to use these creative, unexpected, next generation of classroom management strategies every day you teach

Stop Classroom Management Problems
Including Reading

Literacy Poster #185If you want students to care about school and the academics you offer, you will have to teach them the value of school– especially if parents are not selling the value of  education for you. Poster #185, pictured here, works both as a poster or a worksheet.

The scrambled text says "This is what life is like if you can't read."

What a provocative, compelling, attention-grabbing way to help your students grasp the minute-by-minute, second-by-second importance of reading to functioning in the world.

Stop Classroom Management Problems
Including How to Follow the Dress Code

Dress Code Poster #196Stop hassling chronic behavior problems by training your students to have the skills and motivation they need to comply with your school's dress code. Yes, it is possible to stop the unending struggle to get students to dress appropriately for school, especially if you show them how  mastering what to wear to school  prepares them for what to wear in their future jobs of choice.

Poster #196 begins to convince students that if they can't dress appropriately for school, they aren't going to be ready to dress correctly for the adult work place, and the jobs and careers they say they want to succeed in as adults.

Stop Classroom Management Problems
Including How to Stop Cyberbullying

cyberbullying poster 280When you were being trained to be a teacher, cyberbullying hadn't been invented, so you may feel unprepared to tackle a problem that can happen both in and out of school.

The reality of our world today is that you have to teach every School Skill behavior you want to happen or stop happening in the classroom and school.

This printable can be used to start a discussion, or students can use it as a template to illustrate what is and is not cyberbullying. This printable appears to be a familiar social networking site that is often used for bullying.

Until students are clear on what words, phrases, actions, postings, and text constitute cyberbullying, you are going to struggle to gain compliance. While it's just a first step, helping students become clear on what is and is not cyberbullying is a must-do first step.

Without an education on the topic, it is too easy for youngsters to claim "But I didn't think it was cyberbullying." Take that excuse off the table before students even start to use it this school year.
