UMass Global University Course Code: EDCU 9919
Do you want to create a classroom environment in which all students can learn and student’s attitudes and behaviors support, not sabotage, your teaching? Would you love to have school administrators, members of the your school community, and students’ families support your classroom management efforts? If so, then you’ll love this online course on classroom management, using restorative justice practices.
Restorative justice in education – in which traditional approaches to discipline are replaced with “mediation” that’s focused on repairing, not exacerbating rifts – might seem like an unattainable ideal. But restorative justice, when applied correctly, can be far more than just a “buzz word” or a substitute for warnings, punishments, and suspensions.
In this online professional development course, you’ll learn about effective classroom management, including:
- your role in ensuring fairness and equity in your classroom
- preemptive practices for classroom management
- optimal decision-making in responding to problematic student behavior
- ways to ensure affirmation of all students, while repairing relationship rifts
- tips for engaging students in the classroom
- strategies for addressing student disengagement
- ideas for group work that can aid in classroom management
- recommendations for how to work with administrators and students’ families
In this online professional development course, you’ll learn effective classroom management, using restorative justice practices that help ensure positive behavior and promote fairness and equity.
