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 such as respect, fairness, handling classroom procedures and managing student behavior, this course offers strategies to ensure the emotional and physical safety of all learners. As in all Distinguished Teacher courses, participants will create artifacts to be included in a professional portfolio.
