      CHAMPS: A Proactive and Positive Approach to Classroom Management [A]

Target group: K-12 teachers, administrators

Engaged students, classrooms that seem to run themselves, seamless transitions--these are the goals of teachers who want to focus on effective, standards-based instruction. Research to date shows us that when strong management systems are in place, teaching and learning occurs.

This class, which is drawn from Randy Sprick´s resource, CHAMPS: A Proactive & Positive Approach to Classroom Management, will enable participants to identify and maintain the effective aspects of the participants´s current management plan while adding and/or strengthening any less-effective aspects.

When teachers create clear expectations around student Conversation, Help, Activities, Movement, and Participation, they experience SUCCESS! This class can help any teacher, whether new or experienced, manage student behavior more effectively.

Please note, this class is intended for Tier 1 behavior supports and interventions. Participants will also be asked to video their classrooms for reflection.

Socratic Seminars foster active learning as participants explore and evaluate the ideas, issues, and values in a particular text.

Participants will be able to

  • ask Socratic questions
  • identify age and curriculum-appropriate texts for use in Socratic seminars
  • conduct Socratic seminars
  • evaluate seminar participant behaviors as well as their own behaviors as seminar leaders.

After registering for this, several readings will be shared with you. Participants are asked to read these documents prior to attending the class. Please be sure that your e-mail address entered in your account is accurate.
