“Discipline Strategies from Successful Teachers of African American Adolescents,” a research-based professional learning program offering educators the opportunity to obtain leadership skills needed to positively influence students with disruptive behavior, will be held April 28 at Carnegie Literacy Center in Lexington.

The seminar is based on the doctoral dissertation of Carolyn Bowman, an English professor at Bluegrass Community and Technical College and the University of Kentucky and a former teacher and administrator in the Detroit Public Schools. It is designed to offer teachers, principals, counselors, social workers and others specialized techniques to deal with disruptive behavior and to help them promote student achievement.

The workshop is from 4:30-6:30 p.m.; the registration fee is $50. Professional learning credit and EILA credit is available. Email Carolyn Bowman to register or for more information.
