Project CLASS Workshop Training
Project CLASS Workshop Training occurs in the HAP training building in the Houston Heights. Training is 6.5 hours in duration and includes a working lunch provided by HAP. Workshop participants include teachers, teacher assistants, principals, assistant principals, parents, other staff and adults engaged with children. Typically, there is one Project CLASS Trainer for each cluster of 4-5 workshop participants to facilitate role-playing and skill acquisition by all participants. Workshop Training most frequently occurs the two weeks before the start of school in August.

The Project CLASS Workshop Training builds on the current skills of the participants and strengthens abilities to: concentrate teaching on important, simple, clear, defined user-friendly social skills; notice and communicate what children are doing and not doing in their social behavior; communicate with language and intention that help children implement skills and experience success; respond in a consistent and effective way to children’s appropriate and inappropriate social skills behavior, facilitating their social skills development; effectively “set expectations” for social skills behaviors; effectively use “praise and positive attention” directly linked to social skills behaviors; effectively use “reminder prompts” directly linked to social skills behaviors; effectively make use of “choices” and “consequences” directly linked to social skills behaviors; make social skills teaching FUN by using music, songs, movements, and scenarios; avoid a number of pitfalls that lead to power struggles with children; feel more confident that participants know what to teach and how to teach social skills effectively; teach social skills positively with positive results.
