Understanding Classroom Management: Tracing Student Behaviors to their Source

Time: 5:30- 8:30pm via web conference
New Visions’ Fee: $100*

Focusing on understanding behavior as communication, this course prepares teachers to manage their classroom environments effectively and efficiently. It is designed to support both teachers who are currently struggling with classroom management, as well as teachers who are looking to improve their strategies. The four course themes — “Unmet Needs and Lagging Skills,” “Finding (but not using) Our Voice,” “Rules for Relationships,” and “Equal Protection: Challenging Implicit Bias and Systemic Racism” — will guide participants as they develop, deploy, and reflect upon classroom management strategies that support rather than hinder instruction. The course will compare managing a remote classroom with managing an in-person classroom, developing strategies for both venues.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to articulate concrete strategies for building relationships with students, role-modeling behaviors for students, using a process for structuring classes to support student engagement, and identifying and supporting the lagging skills and unmet needs most commonly seen in their classrooms.

This class will be taught by Kit Golan
