Coaching Principles and Behavior
Jeremy Klein and Candace Lattanze
Establishing practical approaches to classroom management is critical for working with students of all ages. Student behavior is conditioned by many factors including home life and day-school experience among others. Giving students the opportunity to offer a “feelings temperature” is a good first step. Providing specific roles for students to use during the session is another helpful strategy. Coaches must promote and reinforce positive behavior and establish clear expectations and consequences for inappropriate behavior.
