Students will explore the most challenging aspect of teaching, classroom management. They will examine positive interaction, guidance, and discipline strategies that build relationships and establish effective classroom management.
Lesson 1 - This lesson draws students into thinking about, discussing, and describing the underlying causes of chaos in a classroom, and establishes the importance of building relationships and practicing effective classroom management to create an environment conducive to teaching and learning.
Lesson 2 - This is the second in a series of four lessons where students observe and examine teacher and student behaviors and classroom set-up and routines that play a role in classroom management.
Lesson 3 - The students have been given a foundation about the importance of classroom management and they have studied what has to be managed in a classroom. In lesson three, students continue to prepare for their elementary school observation by examining best practices for delivery of classroom management strategies.
Lesson 4 - The students have learned much about what is involved with classroom management, including the importance of positive teacher-student interactions. In this fourth and final lesson, students will apply what they have learned in the classroom and in the field by constructing and demonstrating classroom management strategies.
