Examine research-based strategies for the comprehensive management of the K-12 classroom that promotes teacher efficacy and student academic success. Participants will identify and analyze ways to create an efficient learning environment that promotes effective, engaged learning and student academic achievement.

The course goes beyond helpful facts and strategies that focus primarily on how to increase on-task behavior and decrease misbehavior, concentrating on managing instructional activities, procedures, and policies; recognizing and complimenting learning styles and diversity, and mastering lesson planning and grade keeping. It will be the instigation of refining and transforming your instructional methods that will minimize classroom disruption, support prosocial behavior, and increase academic success.

This course will push you to be a reflective practitioner, one who will continually examine, evaluate, and modify your current instructional practices to serve all your students at all times.
