Effective Classroom Management

This two hour workshop focuses on effective classroom management which is much more than just administering corrective measures when a student misbehaves; it’s about developing proactive ways to prevent problems from occurring in the first place while creating a positive learning environment.

  • View classroom management as a process that supports and facilitates academic and social-emotional learning.

  • Organize the physical environment to be conducive to learning.
  • Organize and implement instructional ways that optimize students’ access to learning.
  • Communicate academic and behavioral expectations, as well as a cooperative learning environment.

  • Promote the development of students’ social skills and self-regulation.
  • Enforce rules and procedures.
