This classroom management course shifts the discipline paradigm from controlling student behavior through rewards and punishment to managing and motivating students by building self-esteem and helping all students make better choices. The goal is student growth: academically, socially and psychologically. Structured around nine research-based school success factors, course content instructs educators in identifying the four goals of misbehavior, building positive classroom climate and over fifty strategies to use at the moment misbehavior occurs in order to increase student achievement.
3 graduate credits either face-to-face or online.

Available through both TCNJ and La Salle University
Two Fall Sessions beginning
September 26 or October 24
Based on the current writing and research in the field of classroom climate, participants will examine a three-dimensional model for understanding why a student may act irresponsibly in the classroom and what to do about it. Educators will develop an approach that focuses first on students’ internal dialogue to help them resolve their inner conflicts, as well as strategies for improving responsibility in the learning community so students become more responsible and self-disciplined.

What Educators Are Saying...
Real Comments from Real
RTC / TCNJ / LaSalle Students:
The Bully Proof Classroom:
(Available face-to-face and online)
"Bullying is a real problem in our schools. I feel like this course was a great combination of research and practical application I can use in the classroom right away. I have a lot of ideas for this coming school year. Thank you for the well-developed and very organized [online course]."
"I appreciated the organization and clarity [of this online course.] Without being able to meet face-to-face, it would have been easy to get lost; however the professor made the course easy to understand and was readily available."
The Kinesthetic Classroom: Teaching and Learning through Movement
"This was my favorite RTC course I've taken so far. [The instructor] showed me not only how to incorporate the kinesthetic classroom into my class, but WHY it is so important. I can't wait to use all the ideas in September. My only wish is that I had had this as an undergraduate course!"
"A plus of taking this class is that a coauthor of the textbook taught it! She knew her material well and kept the classes flowing with content (it was never boring!) This class has redirected my teaching perspective to aim to teach kinesthetically daily. A challenge I embrace. Thank you."
"This was by far the best class I have taken through RTC. I am walking out, on this last day of class, with ideas - a toolbox filled with activities and strategies."
(Available face-to-face and online)
"This class was a wonderful learning experience for me and really made me re-evaluate my discipline practices as an educator. I learned so much from [the instructor] and look forward to taking classes with her in the future."
"I appreciated the integration of personal stories into the content. Real-life stories always help me learn. I also appreciated the enthusiam and passion [the instructor] had - I could tell it was something he believed in and uses."
