Full course description
The ultimate goal of classroom management is student success and learning. In order to learn and succeed academically, students need to feel safe in the classroom. To feel safe, they need assurances that from day to day there will be a consistency on which they can rely.
Your classroom management system, in conjunction with routines and procedures, helps provide that structure. In this course, you will learn how to craft a management system. You’ll learn how to reinforce the behaviors you want and reduce the behaviors you don’t want. You’ll also build a bank of corrective actions to match student misbehaviors. By the end of this course, you will have a classroom management system consisting of a short list of classroom rules or norms, a way to positively support behavior, and a logical responses to misbehaviors that focus on keeping all students involved in the learning opportunities provided each day.
