Participants in this seminar will consider the theories of Skinner, Dreikurs, Curwin & Mendler, Canter, Glasser and others with the goal of understanding basic tenets of each theory, and how to apply those theories in the classroom. Consideration will be given to developmentally appropriate application, and tailoring theoretical application to the needs of the students you teach. The instructional approach of this institute is more one of coaching, with each participant setting their own goals for applying the theories. Time will be spent viewing, reading and role playing. This institute requires participants to work synchronously online for up to 15 hours. Participants will also complete a hypothetical case study grounded in their knowledge of students with whom they previously worked. The seminar is intended for teachers who are newer to teaching, or who would like to take a deeper dive into classroom management with the goal of exploring new approaches.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Delineate the tenets of at least 3 theorists, and demonstrate how they would implement those theories in their classroom.
- Respond to discussions and theorizing by other participants.
- Role play hypothetical in-class interactions.
- Complete a case study demonstrating their newly acquired classroom management theories.
