This online course helps experienced and beginning educators create a classroom environment in which responsible behavior is modeled, taught, and supported. Participants will explore the underlying causes of disruptive student behavior and learn specific classroom management strategies associated with four instructional approaches that empower students to be self-directed, responsible learners: helping students develop personal power, helping students use effective mental models, teaching students appropriate behaviors, and developing skills for positive student confrontation. As participants learn to mentor, model, coach, and facilitate responsible actions in their students’ behalf, they likewise develop increasing responsibility and personal power in their own professional practice. 3 graduate credits.
