Whether you’ve been teaching for 20 years or you just started in the profession, there’s always the possibility that you will have a student in your class whose behavior is disruptive. Disruptive classroom behavior not only interferes with teaching and learning, but it can also have a negative impact on classroom civility and the overall enjoyment of the learning experience.
The best classroom management strategy is to prevent disruptions before they occur. Participants of this webinar will learn strategies for creating and sustaining a dynamic learning environment PLUS effective methods for early intervention AND MINIMIZING PROBLEMS WHEN THEY FIRST OCCUR. We will also explore basic principles related to classroom management and learn a variety of strategies for managing disruptive behavior.
“Disruptive classroom behavior interferes with teaching and learning. The central goal of classroom management is to create a safe environment that gives all students the opportunity to learn.”
