With the national average of students spending over 1,000 hours each school year with their teachers, it is
crucial that we understand the importance of positive interactions. A Review of Educational Research analysis of 46 studies
found that strong teacher-student relationships were associated in both the short- and long-term with improvements on
practically every measure schools care about: higher student academic engagement, attendance, grades, fewer disruptive
behaviors and suspensions, and lower school dropout rates (Education Week, 2019). The focus of this presentation
includes ways to increase appropriate behavior and decrease problematic behavior through six proactive relational
strategies. Impact your students by implementing these free strategies today!
