The ability to create and maintain an orderly, productive classroom environment is essential to effective teaching. There is more to effective teaching than classroom management, although well-run, stimulating, and task-oriented classrooms appear to be essential to learning. Effective classroom managers apply a systematic approach, one that requires preparation and planning. In this course participants will learn methods for increasing the amount of active learning time in the classroom. Topics include classroom management techniques; teaching roles and procedures; and handling discipline positively, quickly, and fairly.
