RCD Core Training 3: Give 'em Five


This course provides an excellent framework for handling challenging conversations with students and guiding them toward responsibility. Give ‘em Five helps students feel that you are “on their side” and focuses on the benefits of changing behavior. The Levels of Student Compliance can help your staff calibrate your responses to student behaviors and avoid equity issues. Effectively coaching students requires not just telling them what to do but also helping them develop the needed skills.
