This amazing photograph captured the current stage of demolition on the 3rd floor of Ruffner Hall which was the previous location of the CLIC. The CLIC is scheduled to return to the Ruffner Hall location after renovations are completed.
This past Saturday, Curry’s Ed Council and the Student Virginia Education Association (SVEA) sponsored the workshop, Dealing with Difficult Behaviors. Shanna Hirsch and Emily Ely provided leadership for the event and reported that 75 students attended the workshop.
In the workshop, the presenters (both of whom are teachers) focused on the most challenging 15% of classroom discipline problems. The goal was to create a positive learning environment by examining the effects of behaviors and attitudes and exploring strategies for changing those behaviors and attitudes that are counterproductive to teaching and learning.
