P01.049.1S17 - Classroom Management: Keeping it Positive (Secondary)
|Course Description: In this course, participants will gain insight into classroom management and ways to keep a positive focus in the classroom. Shifts in common classroom practices will be highlighted, including setting up a positive classroom culture, explicitly teaching expectations and reinforcing positive behaviors in the classroom, and building positive relationships with students. Research shows that teacher’s actions, including classroom management, have a high impact on student achievement. Numerous studies conducted over the past few decades have outlined the importance of having a classroom where students and teachers are clear on behavioral expectations as well as consequences for inappropriate behavior. This course will explore practical teaching strategies to integrate positive classroom management into the secondary level classroom. Various areas of classroom management will be explored, including classroom set-up and arrangement, teaching social skills, teaching cooperative learning strategies, power dynamics and struggles, rewards and punishments, rules and expectations, student buy-in, consistency, and other topics. Participants will learn about the “public praise/private conversations” philosophy and how it can change the dynamic of the classroom. Because secondary teachers often deliver content to numerous groups of students over the course of a day or days, specific strategies will be highlighted on how to differentiate for particular classes that have differing classroom management needs. Short mini-lessons on classroom management as well as more extensive lessons and practice will be highlighted so that teachers can see a variety of ways to incorporate positive classroom management techniques in differing contexts, depending on the needs of individual groups of students.|
