Most teachers have a common story – whether trained through a traditional university track, through an intense alternative certification cohort or through online certification routes – addressing classroom behavior is a challenge we have all faced. And unfortunately, many of us didn’t feel prepared, lacking the tools and training to create an effective classroom management plan. Effective classroom behavior supports starts with these six components: connections, skill-building, acknowledgements, corrections, systems and data. The Cultivating the Classroom course is designed to walk participants through each of these components with high quality content, interactive activities and personalized reflection. Using the Emergent Tree Classroom Planning Template, participants will iteratively designed processes and strategies for each component, finishing with a complete and comprehensive classroom plan that will improve student outcomes. Feeling prepared boosts teacher confidence and competence. Together that is how we grow a better future from the ground up!
