ESSE679: Advanced Classroom Management/Practicum

Wednesday, 4:20pm - 7:00pm

This course will examine methods for educators to use in order to make their classroom teaching more efficient. For teachers to implement and to sustain a success- oriented environment, they must continually and thoroughly address the teaching process. This process is founded upon the planning and implementing of instructional activities and the evaluating of teacher and student performance.

This course is designed to help professional educators to become aware of the various discipline techniques used by parents and teachers and to become astute as to the effectiveness of those techniques. The effects of negative, punitive and damaging discipline will be examined, and the student will learn how to avoid the use of such techniques. Effective positive discipline techniques that are supported by research will be taught, with an opportunity given for the student to use these skills in the classroom, home and community.
