How do we get Love and Logic started in our school?
To start Love and Logic in your school, pick the best and most enthusiastic teachers to voluntarily study the Nine Essential Skills for the Love and Logic Classroom™ Curriculum. The curriculum includes instructional videos, step-by-step facilitator guide, participant workbooks, Quick and Easy Classroom Interventions (audio CD), Teaching with Love and Logic (book), a Love and Logic tote bag, and one-on-one direct access to Jim Fay and Charles Fay, Ph.D., for support questions.
Don't train all staff members the first year.
Don't require all staff members to adopt Love and Logic. This can be the demise for any program.
Introduce the program to staff by allowing everyone to view the first part. Use your own judgement as to when to stop the tape during the first presentation, and then announce that further training will be on a voluntary basis.
Create a study group made up of your most enthusiastic teachers. These are the staff members who should receive a Study Guide so that they can continue to work together in the study of Love and Logic during the first year. Some schools have required that teachers apply to the building committee for admittance into the study group. Make the study of Love and Logic an honor, not a mandate.
Create additional study groups as other staff members catch the enthusiasm generated by those using the curriculum.
