This entire course addresses how to create a highly effective classroom culture that is a cognitively vibrant place, characterized by a shared belief in the importance of learning. The teacher conveys high expectations for learning by all students and insists on hard work; students assume responsibility for high quality by initiating improvements, making revisions, adding detail and/or helping peers as described in Domain 2.
Learn classroom management entails: the physical setting, the way students move about and engage in the process of learning, and the way they set up the emotional environment of the classroom impacts student outcomes.
Participants will also learn that instructional methods and the way they present the subject matter will impact their classroom environment. They learn ways to meet their student’s physical, social and emotional needs which help the student to perform cognitively.
Participants learn skills to take a diverse student population and create a safe and secure environment where learning can take place.
Learn the instructional process can be improved through the development of a systematic approach to storing and retrieving materials. The specific organization is dependent on the arrangement and space in the room and on the style and preferences of the teacher or teachers who use the room. The purpose of organizing materials is so that both students and teachers can have access to the correct materials with a minimum of disruption.
Learn how to create and introduce rules and procedures to their class to create an orderly and safe environment for students. Students need to know the rules and procedures of their classroom, they need to follow these rules and procedures, and they need to accept the consequences for choosing not to follow them.
