Perspectives in Classroom Management

Started Aug 22, 2022


Full course description

Course: Classroom management refers to strategies teachers and students use to interact, relate and learn in classrooms. Good classroom management is about creating equitable learning opportunities, not simply discipline. Through implementation of key strategies that are based in research and practiced in the field, teachers can support students' productive learning and spend less time addressing behavioral distraction. In this module trace historical and current perspectives in research and best practices that drive effective approaches to classroom management, learning and educational equity. Visit the School of Education to design your own classroom management strategy plan via the four module asynchronous course or semester face-to-face course.
