This course covers current practices of classroom management for gifted, regular, and special needs students, focusing on an integration of theory and practice. Special attention is given to the development of both individual and group management skills. Participants will analyze and evaluate motivation theory as it relates to behavior and become familiar with classroom management techniques that identify specific target behaviors, and develop positively based behavioral strategies. Participants will explore the diverse causes of student disruption, aggressiveness, and defiance, and evaluate strategies that reduce or eliminate these behaviors. Students will analyze recent Federal and State laws defining bullying and harassment, and expectations for educators in reporting and handling bullying and harassment. Students will learn practical strategies for improving home-school relations. Strategies taught in this course will utilize text books for middle and high school grade levels.
