This session will examine what can be done in middle and high schools to help teachers organize their classroom to reduce discipline problems and prompt responsible behavior from students. Through lecture and video-based scenarios, participants will learn the importance of (a) high quality staff development, (b) clarity from administrators on the outcomes of good classroom management, and (c) supportive coaching techniques. The research on effective classroom management is clear and consistent. The trick lies in getting staff to implement. Participants will learn the content of an instructional approach to discipline and how to create the infrastructure to implement that content with fidelity.
