You've created a dynamic lesson plan filled with creative activities, movement, and discussion. You've utilized Bloom's Taxonomy to ensure the content your teaching is high-up on the pyramid. You're convinced the education your students are about to receive will be nothing short of miraculous. Yet, at the end of the day, you've discovered that things didn't go quite as you had envisioned. Students were off task, behavior issues were higher than anticipated, and you exhausted too much time on student corrections and too little time on teaching content. If you've been teaching long enough, you've probably survived this scenario once or twice. What went wrong? Why didn't the students respond to your teaching in the manner you anticipated?
The greatest lesson planning coupled with incredible teaching doesn't always equate to effective education or student learning. From early childhood education through high school students need structure and stability that teachers provide through the consistent application of their classroom management plan. In this course, I'm going to teach the components of your classroom management plan and show you how to incorporate it with fidelity.
It all begins with strategic planning. Teachers are leaders and successful leaders plan strategically. During this course, we're going to create your classroom management plan. We'll start by creating your core values, vision, mission statement, and goals. Next we'll describe and create your classroom rules, procedures, consequences, and a rewards and motivation system. But we won't stop there, we'll discuss effective tier-1 strategies, attention signals, and as a bonus we'll review and I'll provide you with a copy of my Classroom Management Dashboard.
Effective classroom management is the cornerstone to effective teaching. Even with the best of intentions, a child's education can be halted when structure and stability are missing in the classroom. Classroom Management - Fundamentals of Teaching & Education, from start to finish will not only teach you how to create an effective classroom management plan, but we will build your plan together to improve teaching in your classroom, minimize behavior issues, and accelerate the education of all of your students.
