No additional requirements
The subject will explore the theoretical and practical issues concerned with establishing and maintaining positive learning environments that allow all students to participate fully in educational opportunities. The subject will explore preventive strategies to establish a positive classroom climate in all education settings; corrective strategies to respond to disruptive behaviours in order to maintain a focus on learning; and supportive strategies to address the higher level needs of individual students including discipline/crisis/emergency response for disruptive student behaviour. The content will be studied through an interactive learning process including case studies, role play and rehearsal of appropriate language and non-verbal responses, to link theory and practice in class and individual management situations. Students will develop a Classroom Management Plan to be evaluated, refined and further developed through their later practicum experiences.
