Creating a Culture of Achievement – Updates

Hello LCN Members,

Thank you for a wonderful morning of learning around “Fostering a Culture of Do No Harm” from Doug Fisher’s book,  How to Create a Culture of Achievement in your school and classroom.  We explored and discussed two proactive service cycles, A proactive classroom environment for learning and Hallway TLC and two service cycles that look at ways to support learning despite our best efforts to prevent problems from occurring, Analyze the causes of behavior and Restorative practices.  Our learning community offered two additional resources to support our learning in creating a culture of do no harm.

PBISworld.com   Lots of resources to work with behavior. MDE’s recently released Alternatives to Suspensions and Expulsions Toolkit.
