    Course Description

    This three-credit graduate level course is designed to provide educators with an in-depth exploration of the Positive Discipline strategies and techniques put forth by Lee Canter and other educational researchers aimed at teaching students to choose responsible behavior, and in doing so, raising their self-esteem and increasing their academic success in meeting the Pennsylvania Academic Standards and perform well on state and local assessments.  This is an online Moodle class, and each session contains a series of lessons, videos, written responses, and other activities.

    This course, which lasts approximately 30 days, will be completed strictly online using the Moodle platform. The instructor for this course is Agolino Educational Services. Pending receipt of payment, participants will receive an email from Agolino Educational Services containing their log-on information the night before the course begins.

    Participants who successfully complete all requirements of this course will earn Three (3) PDE Graduate Level Credits, equal to 90 Act 48 Hours.

    Participants will be able to:
