EDU 594 - The Positive Classroom: Welcoming, Respectful & Productive
Although instruction is the centerpiece of the teacher’s role, it cannot be successfully carried out if other areas are neglected or performed inadequately. This course emphasizes setting the stage for a smoothly functioning classroom. With such topics as respectful and affirming environments, accessibility, supporting positive student behavior, and organizing spaces for learning, this course offers strategies to ensure the emotional and physical well-being of all learners. As in all Distinguished Teacher courses, participants will create artifacts to be included in a professional portfolio.
