Culture Principle 1: Raise Expectations

Expect much to achieve much

The research is clear, when teachers hold students to high expectations, they’ll likely raise their own. They can do it, and when teachers truly believe they can, challenging and treating all as they have the potential to become, a teacher’s expectation of each student will quickly become their own expectation of themselves. Additional concepts include:

  • The Pygmalion Effect: Rosenthal and Jacobson
  • Growth Mindset: Dr. Carol Dweck
  • Academic and Behavioral Expectations
  • Goals, Standards, and Procedures
  • Direct application of LiFT’s Culture Grid (See Strengthen Relationships)

Creating a Classroom Culture of Success

Individual success is predicated on choice. As much as they may try, teachers cannot force growth with bribes, coercion, or wishful pleading. Yet, they can create an environment that inspires success, a culture that fosters creativity, risk taking, and unmatched effort. How? Together we’ll explore a summary of the four universal principles of creating a classroom culture of success, empowering teachers in turn to empower their students.

The Culture Grid

LiFTing Individuals to Greener Pastures

Truth be told, mediocre performance is largely a product of mediocre culture. But you don’t teach to be mediocre. You teach to inspire. You teach to empower. You teach to succeed and help students do likewise. So, let’s explore together two vital culture principles, Raise Expectations and Strengthen Relationships, and their synergistic effect when properly and consistently applied. You will leave armed with conceptual and practical skills that will produce an immediate impact.

Good for Nothing

The Power of Intrinsic Motivation

As the old proverb goes, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” In this class we’ll learn together the power of ditching those extrinsic stinky fish and replacing them with fishing poles instead, with research-based, proven methods of intrinsic motivation that will transform your class culture, empowering students with an inner drive to succeed, and to be, well… “Good for Nothing!”

A Pound of Prevention

Behavior Management without Managing Behavior

Poor student behavior crippling your class culture? Random punishments continuing to backfire? Tired of all the tension and drama? The truth is, reaction to such behaviors gets you and your students nowhere. Prevention, however, is where the party’s at. Dive deeper into LiFT’s three-pronged model of Reinforcing the Positive, learning and implementing proven methods to curb bad behavior and increase the good like never before.
