Classroom Management

Managing the classroom is a big part of teaching. Developing proactive strategies for addressing behavior problems and conflicts in the classroom is a process that develops over time. Learning modules providing tips and support for handling behavior challenges, such as those provided by the IRIS Center at Vanderbilt University, are modules that can offer much useful information.

Classroom Meetings, one approach to addressing problems and building a sense of community in the classroom, have proven quite useful for teachers and students alike, especially when conducted with an awareness of conflict resolution and peaceable classroom principles. Consider this short online module on Using Classroom Meetings. It is available online for browsing, and for download in formats compliant with the major online learning systems.
