What is a Webinar?

The term webinar is short for web seminar, and it's an online version of a professional development event. I decided to create The Cornerstone Pro-Active Behavior Management Webinar after getting workshop requests from educators in areas that I can't easily visit–from small American towns to Uganda to Japan to Brazil. Why not take advantage of the Internet as a truly cost-effective way to reach teachers all over the world?

Why Watch a Webinar?

If you've ever fallen asleep in a workshop or sat there fuming with rage about how the day could have been more enjoyably and productively spent at the dentist's office, you understand that high-quality, engaging professional development is hard to come by. Many times, teachers don't get a say about the workshop's topic, much less its date and time.

So what if you could attend a professional development session on a topic that's relevant to your everyday work and could make an immediate and profound impact on the way your classroom runs? What if you could attend any time you choose, and go back and re-watch any parts that were particularly helpful? And what if you could watch from the comfort of your couch while gorging on your favorite snack foods?

That's what you get when you purchase this webinar: the convenience of on-demand professional development from someone you already know and trust to deliver a product that's relevant and practical. If the resources on this website and in The Cornerstone book make sense to you and work with your students, then you know the webinar's going to provide even more solid advice. And, you'll be able to print a certificate of completion which may count toward your continuing education credits!

How Is It Different From the Book?

If you've read The Cornerstone book, you'll find that the webinar reinforces and extends the techniques you've learned. The two resources are organized completely differently to help you process the information more deeply and apply the core concepts in ways you wouldn't have thought of with just one of the resources alone. And, the webinar is cross-referenced with the book so you can look up more information about many of the ideas presented.

A lot of teachers have read the book and then emailed me to ask: Now what? How in the world do I implement all of this?That's an especially tricky issue once the school year has started because you already have routines in place and are worried about how to change them. The webinar explains step-by-step how to take your new ideas and put them into practice in a way that's manageable and not overwhelming to you or your students.

Read what teachers are saying about The Cornerstone Pro-Active Behavior Management Webinar!

“First of all, I want to thank you for putting this webinar together. I am a first year teacher and I have found it very difficult to manage the classroom. I have discovered that I did not clearly define my expectations and we did not practice enough as a class. I was really thinking that they were in third grade, this was not the first classroom they had ever been in, and I just assumed that they understood everything I wanted. I have realized by watching you that I did not provide enough clear instruction about procedures during the beginning of the year. The other thing that I have learned is that “it is never too late". I have heard many times from other educators that I cannot change routines and procedures in the middle of the year and that I need to wait until next year. Thank you for giving me permission to come back from winter break and re-teach the procedures and establish good routines and model, model, model." –M., 3rd grade teacher

“I just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying reading your books and watching your webinar. They have encouraged me to really reflect on my own teaching practices. I'm teaching a Year 2 class this year (6/7 year olds) and your ideas will definitely help me to get our class running itself. Last year I taught Year 5 (9/10 year olds) – so it's pretty new to me getting tapped, pulled and prodded by the kids just looking for praise or tattling! At least I know why they are doing this and the importance of eliminating ambiguous instructions.You have inspired me, in that I feel motivated, enthusiastic and empowered!!!" –John, Birmingham, UK

“I really, really, REALLY enjoyed the presentation. Some things I found I was doing well (positive affirmation) but hearing you say it's never to late to make a change was empowering. Thank you for this information. :) I have employed a few ideas already and it has begun to change the dynamics of instructional time–I love it!" –Jodi, 4th grade teacher, Florida

“I have purchased dozens of books (including yours) to help me out but watching the webinar has made a world of a difference. I do not have to look up topics in a book, this is much faster, more interesting and effective. I cannot thank you enough!" —Sylvia, 5th grade teacher

“I just finished the webinar series! I had spoken to my kindergarten teacher (yes, my parents are still in touch with her) and her comment was, 'Some years you just want to throw up your hands and quit. You just stick it out because the next year will remind you why you became a teacher'. Well, winter break could not come fast enough this year and I needed a boost in confidence. Your webinar and teaching style was exactly what I needed. I really appreciated that I felt as if I was just chatting with a friend about ways to problem solve in the classroom. I also appreciated that you made the study guide and had me think about my concerns. Returning to that page after watching and writing down possible solutions was so empowering. I have nothing but compliments and positive feedback to pass on to my administration. They have been looking for web based training to offer the staff and I will be turning in a review along with a copy of my study guide on my first day back in January. Once again, thank you!" –Christa E

“I am a long-time follower of your website, since back in the days of Ms. Powell's teaching tips, and I really enjoyed your Cornerstone book. I bought it for my student teacher and I also revisit it every summer when I am getting back into the school mode a few weeks before school starts and sometimes occasionally throughout the year. It is an amazing resource and has given me so many great ideas that streamline my teaching. I was excited to see your webinar become available awhile back. It was exactly as you described- finally some professional development that was relevant, helpful, and could be applied to my classroom right away with real photos and examples shown. I also love how I can come back and revisit certain points in the videos at a later date. You created a fantastic webinar and I can't even imagine how long it took to prepare and create, yet I can't wait for another one! THANKS! Looking forward to your next webinar!" –Lisa D., Connecticut

“Thank you so much for such a detailed practical interesting series of training webinars. I wish I had found you before I had my tough class last year. I can see where I went wrong – the individual two tone counters would have worked wonders. I had procedures but a lot of them were not precise enough for every student to know what to do. You have real flair in presenting. Thank you for this life saver. Was ready to give up teaching."–Sylvia S.

“I'm in love with your Webinar! I've already applied a number of techniques that I heard from it! I can't wait to finish! It is so awesome to actually hear you talk about everything in your book! Thank you so much! This has been a very trying year, but with this I feel like I'm going to have an amazing class!" –Stephanie S., Delaware

“Thank you so much for the wonderful Pro-Active Behavior Management Webinar. I finished watching all of the sessions and enjoyed all of them. I have already started to implement your suggestions and have found it to really make a difference. I plan on beginning my next school year with these ideas. I felt that the webinar was easy to follow and realistic to implement. I also liked how you said that it was o.k. to change something in your classroom right away, rather than waiting to start a new school year. Thank you so much!" –Carrie K.
