This 3.5 hour course is designed to act as a refresher for currently certified Instructors. The course will take you through a review of all versions of RIGHT RESPONSE, allowing for questions to be addressed. Paperwork procedures will be reviewed. You will practice teach a section of RIGHT RESPONSE in order to obtain feedback on your teaching as well as to review the curriculum. Any revisions or changes that have been made will also be discussed. A review of Physical Safety skills will be completed, with each Instructor demonstrating those skills. You will be given advanced information on at least one subject. This may be in the form of a research-based article or book for further reading.
The instructor of this workshop will be evaluating each attendee on knowledge and delivery of the RIGHT RESPONSE curriculum. (See below for evaluation sheet)
