conference paper description
This program examines the ingredients of a classroom environment conducive to effectively meeting the demands of the CCSS initiatives, including classroom management policies, relationships, and interactions, instructional strategies, and ways of reaching a wide range of students across the depth and breadth of the curriculum. We’ll see how various policies and practices can impact the emotional climate of a classroom or school and address relationship and safety issues—as well as the social and emotional needs of students—with regard to instruction, motivation, and discipline. The program offers dozens of practical and effective strategies to prevent failure and resistance, minimize or eliminate behavioral disruptions, encourage support and involvement from parents, build a positive school culture, and maximize achievement, commitment, and cooperation.
