Not only is classroom misbehavior a common barrier to student engagement, it is also a frequent source of stress and burnout for teachers.  Effective classroom management structures and practices are foundational to creating a positive and effective learning environment for students.  Teachers with better classroom management skills have students who spend more time actively engaged in instruction who, therefore, learn more during the school year.  Consequently, one of the most important jobs in the classroom is managing it effectively to maximize learning.

In this session, we will explore and plan to implement scientifically-validated best practices in classroom management; we will:

        Identify & Examine the components of effective classroom management

        Develop expertise in building relationships & supports

        Revisit & Revise expectations & classroom rules

        Devise a plan for teaching desired learning behaviors

        Discover strategies for implementing clear procedures/routines

        Acquire skills for applying reinforcement to promote positive                    behavior

        Provide direction in delivering redirection and strategies for                    addressing challenging behavior

Audience:  General Education Teachers, Special Education Teachers, School & District Administrators, & Coaches
