Think About Using the 2+2 Strategy with Your Students Who Are Oppositional!

It’s that time of year when you are exhausted and need all of the tools you can find to get you through! If you have a student who is oppositional, you may want to pull out that 2+2 strategy I’ve taught you before!

I find that even though I’ve shared strategies with staff, they sometimes forget that they need to run through their tool options when new situations arise with students. It’s kind of like that really amazing dress hiding in the back of your closet that you forgot all about. Once you discover it again, you remember just how wonderful it is. It’s kind of like it’s brand new.

I’m sure you have that student right now who will do just the opposite of what you say. The 2+2 can help.
