Classroom management courses are perhaps the most popular and valuable behaviro management courses that we offer at Dominican University. That is because classroom management goes to the heart of teacher success. Without proper classroom management, everything else falls apart. Here at Dominican University we have developed a series of unique courses to assist teachers in all aspects of classroom management. The courses range from creating a culturally responsive environment for all students to bringing passion to the classroom. Discipline, classroom design, working with trauma and many other subjects are also offered. Classroom management is one of the biggest challenges teachers face. We are here to guide you through the steps needed to ensure an orderly and inspiring class environment. Teachers enrolled in our classroom management courses can expect to gain a greater understanding of their teaching style, which is a step to success. Teachers will explore various leadership styles and their effectiveness. They will be allowed opportunities to reflect on their current practices. They will learn current and efficient strategies that will prove valuable to their sanity and their students’ outcomes. Ultimately, they will learn to be passionate leaders.

Discipline and Focus

Discipline and focus are key ingredients when it comes to classroom management. Problems in the classroom can include students with behavior issues not learning and thereby taking time away from the rest of the class. Digital devices can also be an issue, as can students with ADHD and other diagnosed attention issues. The classroom can be a difficult place sometimes. Dealing with distracted students is a given, but there are ways to manage. Our behavior classroom management courses will guide you to develop a classroom management program that maintains order and promotes educational objectives. According to classroom management instructor Matt Heglie, teachers must first understand the skills they need to learn and then prioritize those skills in their daily lives. This can be accomplished with professional growth courses, workshops and teacher collaboration. For starters, it is important to understand that no two classrooms are the same and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to classroom management. Teachers must learn to adapt to the environments they are given. There are, however, guidelines that can be followed to ensure maximum management and productivity. Experts say any program or plan must focus on fair and clear classroom rules and consequences that students participate in planning. Above all, participation gives students a sense of ownership, teachers say. Plans must be consistent with a sound philosophy regarding student discipline. Above all, rules must be realistic and not just based on fear. Authoritarian approaches do not seem to work well with today’s students. Classroom management philosophies, for this reason, must therefore focus on improving social skills. Ultimately, teachers must adopt win-win approaches, say management experts. This requires that questions are asked — How many rules should I have? What type of rules should be enforced? Should they be visible? Can a classroom “motto” replace rules? Can my classroom function without rules? These are just a few.

Tips for Engaging Today's Students

As an institution, education has struggled to keep up with the needs of the contemporary student. Teachers must change the classroom environment and rethink traditional teacher and student roles, allowing students more say in what and how they learn. From social problems, poverty, boredom and media distraction, students today are less engaged. Getting students to listen and learn requires a plan and some serious effort. Having all your students focused, eager, and on the task at the beginning of class is tough enough. The bigger problem is keeping that attention while they are zoning out or sleeping. The good news, however, is that it is possible to accomplish this. Deep down, kids are still inquisitive. The trick is to break through the distraction and keep them in the zone. To be an inspiring teacher means understanding the notion that the best learning takes place when people feel part of a community that respects all learners. Since everybody perceives the world differently, information has to be presented in a variety of ways. Numerous methods should be used to process and present information, as each person has a unique way of connecting new information to what they already know.

Classroom Culture and Passionate Students

Classroom culture is incredibly important and it is important to examine and learn to recognize stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination in education. Creating an inclusive classroom environment for all students is a major step to establishing harmony. In this behavior management course series we will teach you how to create classrooms that instill in students the drive for inquiry and innovation that they will need to succeed beyond the school doors. You will learn about inquiry and how it applies to the new standards. Bringing passion to the classroom is key. As is flexibility in education, inquiry, structure, and positivity. We will teach you how to create lessons, activities, and projects that are designed to demonstrate how to create classrooms and curriculum in which students are engaged in a flexible learner-centered collaborative classroom community. And much more.
