Places Available – Classroom Dina Group Leader Training

Archways are delighted to announce that there are places available on Classroom Dinosaur Group Leader Training.

This 5-day workshop will present in depth the Classroom-based Dinosaur Curriculum Program designed by Dr. Webster-Stratton to help prevent behaviour problems and promote social competence and emotional literacy in young children.

The programme focuses on ways teachers can promote children’s emotional literacy, anger management, appropriate conflict management strategies, expected classroom behaviours, and positive social skills or friendship behaviours with other children and adults.

The curriculum includes over 60 lesson plans for use by teachers for children aged 3-8 (curriculum is broken up into three “levels” for different developmental stages). The training also includes classroom management strategies which enhance children’s prosocial skills and reduce behaviour problems.

The programme is appropriate for use by teachers and school counsellors for classrooms of students in groups of 18 to 24. It includes circle time, small group activities and strategies to promote social, emotional, and academic literacy throughout the day.
