Managing Non-Compliance


Effective Strategies for K-12 Teachers. This evidence-based course by Dr. Geoff Colvin provides a clear, easy-to-use strategy for encouraging student cooperation and correcting the most common and troublesome noncompliant behaviors.

This is a practical, results-oriented program designed to help teachers minimize the kinds of common problem behaviors that often disrupt the teaching-learning process. Educators will learn how to effectively handle the most common and troublesome non-compliant behaviors.
With realistic vignettes, in-depth analysis by Dr. Colvin, and well-timed review and summary, teachers learn a 3-part strategy to correct non-compliance and enlist cooperation:
1. Present a choice to fulfill the request or face small negative consequence
2. Allow a little time for student to process the choice
3. Follow through, based on student’s decision
Right and wrong way realistic vignettes demonstrate how to effectively handle these troublesome behaviors:
• Defiance
• Resistance to directions
• Not minding
• Insubordination
• Oppositional behavior

Staff working with students at all levels from K-12 can use these strategies to reduce non-compliance and increase cooperation in the classroom and common areas.
Audience: K-12 administrators, regular and special education teachers, and support staff.
