Posted: Updated:

Guam - How to deal with bad behavior in the classroom was just one of the topics being discussed during a forum this week hosted by the Guam Department of Education and the University of Guam.  Middle school students and staff are attending the Positive Intervention and Support Conference.

While students are being taught about the consequences of their actions, teachers are learning techniques on how students should be rewarded for good behavior.  DOE Project Menhalom Coach Lindsey Dwiggins told KUAM News, "We want to make sure that we are giving specific feedback so that kids know what they are being rewarded for, so if you just give a 'good job', there going to be like, 'OK', but if you say, 'You know what, I really like the way your working, very quietly thank you very much.'"

The conference continues tomorrow where they will discuss how bullying should be dealt with in the schools.
