Help Me Do it Myself

Redirecting Behavior Toward Respect, Responsibility, and Re-Engagement

When you discovered Montessori,
you knew there was something special about it.

The materials were ingenious, the classrooms were gorgeous...
but there was something more.

Something big.

Something universal.

Something about... humanity.

Something about how the adults viewed the child.

Something about what we're really trying to do in education.

So, what is that something that we're trying to do in education?

We're empowering our students to be their best selves.

Yes! That's why we're here!


So how do we keep this goal front and center when a child is "misbehaving"?

How do we decide what "misbehavior" is in the first place?

How do we decide when it's appropriate to intervene?

How do we avoid resorting to old methods of control and coercion?

What do we say and how do we say it?

Join us for this 1.5 hr pre-recorded presentation with Jonathan Wolff as we examine these questions and learn about how to redirect children's behavior towards respect, responsibility, and re-engagement.


This presentation will look closely at:

Knowing when to follow the lead and when to follow the need of the child.

3 reasons to redirect a child's behavior.

7 strategies to help the child re-affirm and re-establish respect for him or herself and his or her peers, teachers, parents, and the environment.

4 strategies to help the child assume responsibility for his or her thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds.

5 strategies to help the child re-engage in the task at hand.
