2 workshops target bullying, achievement

The Legacy Foundation is sponsoring two free workshops to show teachers and parents how to implement four steps to changing behavior to curb bullying and improve achievement.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization that helps parents and teachers improve classroom performance and the workshops, titled "Four Steps to Changing Behavior," will feature Dr. A. Lynn Scoresby.

The sessions will explore changing misbehavior through teaching children how to identify harmful behavior and how to correct these negative practices with positive alternatives. They will focus on how to work together to apply those alternatives in the classroom, on the playground, on the bus and at home.

Scoresby is the author of "Character and Competence," a character development program that shows teachers and parents how to improve achievement and decrease conduct problems.

The free workshops will be held Wednesday from 7-9 p.m. at the Hampton Inn, 10690 S. Holiday Park Drive in Sandy, and on Nov. 16 from 7-9 p.m. at the Little America Hotel, 500 S. Main in Salt Lake City.
