EDU2230 Classroom Management and Instruction
Credit Points: 15

Effective classroom management is more than quick fix strategies or a bag of tricks. It is a purposeful philosophical, ethical and theoretical code of conduct.  This unit aims to engage students in reflecting on the assumptions they hold about students, the role of the teacher and the level of control given to students.  This reflection is supported through an assessment of contemporary theoretical models in dealing with classroom behaviour which will enable the students to develop a personal management plan.  This unit models cooperative learning approaches.  The unit is practical and will include skill development in effective teaching strategies, connecting with youth, dealing with common classroom misbehaviours, restorative processes as well as learning how to de-escalate conflict.  The unit is predicated on the belief that all students have positive potential and no student is ‘disposable’.
