Author Doug Sorensen

Mr. Sorensen began his career as a music teacher in a small logging community in 1967. After two years, he made a career move to Tacoma, Washington, a large city with a diverse population. Nothing in his college education or teaching experience could have prepared him for the challenging behaviors he would encounter. Here he learned the real meaning of classroom management.

Realizing that yesterday's disciplinary techniques were no longer effective for today's difficult students, he attended many highly acclaimed workshops on classroom management. Though intriguing and inspirational in content, the methods produced more talk, more disruption, and more wasted teaching time.

In 1992, after teaching elementary and middle school music students for twenty-five years, he concluded that "words won't work" for managing classroom behavior no matter how cleverly or thoughtfully they are used. It was then that he developed Conducting Conduct
TM, a silent method for communicating and maintaining cooperation similar to conducting music. Words were no longer needed or used for managing student behavior.

With Conducting Conduct
TM, the results were amazing. Difficult students, who normally could not participate because of their behavior, became success stories. Over the next two years, his music program doubled in size and excelled in quality. Best of all, now his time was spent teaching and only occasionally conducting student conduct.

Later he enhanced his classroom management program by adding many of the principles of  William Glasser's, Choice Theory. Today, Conducting Conduct
TM is a complete classroom management program that not only maintains attentive and cooperative behavior but retains student dignity and self-worth. Teachers in all grades and subjects are adapting Conducting ConductTM to their own classes with phenomenal results.

Mr. Sorensen's educational background includes a BA and BS in Education from Central Washington University, an MA in Education from the University of Oregon, and administrative credentials from the University of Puget Sound. He is the recipient of the "Excellence in Arts Education" and the "Inspirational Teacher" awards, as well as numerous honors for his music groups. Today he presents workshops on Conducting Conduct
TM, supervises student teachers, and does educational consulting.
