Best Practices for Managing Large Classrooms

OnDemand Webinar (85 minutes)

Purchasing this OnDemand Webinar offers educators a condensed system of preventative classroom management practices to address today's complex students. An ecological model of practical, research-based interventions is presented to create a functional classroom that maximizes student achievement and accountability. Field-tested in dozens of elementary-secondary schools, suburban to urban locales, these techniques promote academic readiness, while also nurturing student-teacher interactions. A combination of positive, energy efficient procedures produce behavioral compliance and self-control. Corrective strategies are also highlighted to diminish reliance on unreliable reactive responses to punish disruptive conduct. Adaptable to both school-wide application and individuals, especially new staff.
