Positive Discipline Classroom Practitioners’ Course

The first Positive Discipline course exclusively for Practitioners.

Classroom management can be the most difficult thing for new teachers to learn; it’s so often the missing piece in many teacher training programs. Challenging student behaviour can also become a distraction for experienced Montessori educators.

In this 16-hour course Chip DeLorenzo provides time-tested principles and tools for handling those prickly social-emotional situations that can, and do, come up in every Montessori classroom. Positive Discipline codifies Montessori principles in a way that allows new and seasoned teachers to gain a practical understanding of “deviations” and to apply these principles to the typical behavioural challenges of the modern child. 

Chip DeLorenzo is the author of the new book Positive Discipline in the Montessori Classroom.
