SELF-STUDY: Transformative Classroom Management (5 clock hours)

Teachers often use strategies that create more problems than they solve.

What makes a teacher successful in one school is the same thing that makes a teacher successful in the next school. It is true that all students are unique and group dynamics, cultural backgrounds, and experiences vary — sometimes dramatically. But for the most part, sound ideas get positive results and unsound ideas get mixed results at best.

Not all ideas sold in the marketplace of classroom management strategies lead to desirable results. In fact, many of the most popular ideas result in more harm than good. For that reason, parts of this course are devoted to explaining why many of the most popular ideas in use today are flawed, and what to do instead.

This course is a synthesis of what’s effective in the area of classroom management. It builds on extensive time, real experiences of teachers, observations of hundreds of classrooms, research and the best ideas put into successful practice.

    I learned a lot as I always do, with PLB classes.

    While the majority of this course's content is a review for me, I find this to be the most valuable course in the set of 25 courses (I've completed 24/25 so far). The content is rich and well laid out. And the content is based on great resources, like Alfie Kohn. I was very impressed by this course and will recommend my new school director to have it be a course for all staff to take for professional development; if all in the school are understanding how to work together to create an intrinsic reward based school culture, with lots of practice on common expectations, I'll be a very happy teacher (and so too will the other teachers in the school) and most importantly the students will benefit. Well done with this course!

    Great info- I see many teachers doing what they say not to. These teachers are not effective and unhappy.

    Transformative Classroom Management was my first self study class and not only I enjoyed it, I also took many notes that I wish I will use in the future.

    I loved the lesson 4 section. I think a whole class on how to specifically develop intrinsic motivation would be great! Would still like to know more.(:

    This is a great option for when I need to get hours for a very specific part of my clock hour requirements at an affordable price .Especially during a time that I was not directly employed at a school this was a great resource for me to make sure I could keep my license current. Thanks!

    This course was good for a first year teacher but I wish they would share more ideas on how to get students to pay attention.

  25. Jennifer S. says:

    Even though the content was not new to me, I enjoyed the class thoroughly, because it allowed me a good opportunity to reflect on my current teaching practices and consider how I am or am not actually implementing these best classroom management practices. As a result, I have generated a list of suggestions/ideas for myself, as there were many areas I found in which I need to improve. Thank you for this class offering!

    In my opinion this has been one of the best courses I have taken on PLB so far. I think it could be made even better by adding even more case studies.

    This was an interesting topic. I would have liked additional readings from the author's cited, for example a chapter written by Alfie Kohn, for example, or more links to primary sources on the topic.
