Course Description:

Are you looking for an effective, research-based classroom management plan that will help you to create a productive, positive learning environment for you and your students? No matter where we are in our teaching careers, we can benefit from taking time to focus on our classroom management, which affects every aspect of our daily teaching. CHAMPS is designed to guide you through a process of developing an effective classroom management plan that is positive, proactive, and instructional. We will explore the following elements as they relate to classroom management:

* Structuring your classroom for success
* Teaching behavioral expectations to students
* Observing and supervising student behaviors
* Interacting positively with students
* Correcting students fluently

Come join us in this book-study format to explore the CHAMPS process, and learn how to use it as a guide to improve your current classroom management practices!

One book is required for all credit participants in this class. UWGB will contact you with more information about the book following the course registration deadline.

~Offered in partnership with Green Bay Area Public Schools.
