Overview

In this webinar, presenter Seth Johnson will outline methods for preparing an environment for self-regulation, including tools for planning, goal setting, time management, and behavior management. He will describe community norms in which children co-create and collaboratively maintain the rules. You'll learn ways to encourage children’s full engagement through mindfulness activities, brain science, and self-assessment opportunities. Perhaps most important, Seth will frame Montessori practices within the context of current psychological research, giving you, as a teacher, reasons to keep doing what you already do, and provide you with a model that will be useful in your communication with parents.
