Creating a Culture for Learning
Workshop #: CECO-27

Description:

This is course is designed to teach how to create classroom and behavior management plans that create orderly classrooms where students can and want to do the hard work that is required to succeed. The Safety, Order and Rights® value set is used as the framework for clarifying and communicating the classroom expectations, and is compatible with other value sets that simply and easily communicate the rationale for expectations and procedures. This course discusses what motivates students to ensure what is communicated to them is relevant and meaningful. In addition to designing a classroom management plan that will work in their classroom, participants will learn two verbal techniques that help keep behaviors optimal and in line with the expectations in the classroom. The techniques are constructed to teach students about making choices, consequences and likely outcomes that result from their choices.

The quizzes, tests, and interactive assignments provide mentoring opportunities. The mentoring opportunities will enable the participant and the course moderator/ mentor to evaluate the participant’s key understandings and then improve the participants enduring knowledge to ensure their mastery of the knowledge and skills taught in the course.  The Final Exam will be a comprehensive exam that assesses all the course content.
