This independent study course focuses on putting the teacher in control of the classroom. The list of obstacles facing today’s teachers is enormous and this class will teach you alternatives to the typical methods that leave teachers feeling worn down and unsuccessful. This class will teach you how to:
- Eliminate power struggles and handle disruptions quickly
- Establish a climate of cooperation and respect
- Use natural and logical consequences to support your rules
- Conduct proactive, focused parent conferences
Ultimately, the result will be a more cohesive classroom – one where students enjoy learning, the need for discipline is reduced, and more teaching can occur every day. This class is appropriate for teachers of grades K-12.
