Discipline for Today's Classroom

3 Credits
This course is designed to guide teachers through a series of activities and thought processes that have been found to be effective in creating effective classroom learning environments. The strategies included are supported in the large body of research that exists in the area of student discipline and have proven to be helpful to teachers working in their classrooms.

Assignments have direct application to classroom life. Participants engage in a variety of learning activities such as reading the works of leading theorists, and planning and implementing lessons and strategies with students. A written reflection of experiences, analysis, a plan for future implementation, and sharing of new information with colleagues complete the course requirements. Learning activities are designed to challenge teacher thinking as they consider their work with students.

NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.

This course is applicable towards the Restorative Strategies for the Classroom Certificate.
