ED 375 Managing an Inclusive Classroom
This course is designed to teach future teachers to manage their classrooms and challenging behaviors including noncompliance, disruption, inattention and aggression. Proactive strategies from the basic (routines, rules, attention, consistency) to the instructional (chunking work, grouping, marking corrects) are taught. Students learn to use a problem-solving approach with an emphasis on using observations, interactions, progress monitoring, and teaching social skills. The basics of pre-referral intervention, instructional support teams, Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and the use of paraprofessionals in the classroom for behavior management are covered.
