We offer a seven-week, confidential, distance learning course and professional seminar (or individual tutorial) on classroom management and the preventing and handling of classroom disruptive behavior in elementary, middle school, high school and college classrooms (45 credit hours, see FAQs). This comprehensive and effective course is led by Howard Seeman, Ph.D., an expert on handling disruptive behavior who has taught classroom management, educational psychology, course-content methods, and supervised teachers since 1970. The course is based on books used by school districts, administrators, teachers, and teacher trainers in more than 45 states in the U.S. and in at least 10 countries and international schools since 1988:
Participants get help with their own specific concerns—for example, what to do when students:
You will learn not only the best classroom procedures, rewards and warning-steps that work, but also effective ways to prevent and handle classroom behavior problems. The course/tutorial also works on helping the stressed "person inside the teacher", the most influential tool in the classroom. See the syllabus.
An Individual Course Tutorial on classroom management can also be arranged. This tutorial has total confidentiality and privacy, even if you are referred by a school administrator.
Also, a 3-6 hour module in "Classroom Management" can be arranged (with certification and reference letter upon completion) for teachers/professors who are required to fulfill this kind of mandate (from, e.g., an administrator), or teachers/professors who just want to improve their handling of disruptive behavior - all with total confidentiality and privacy, even if you are referred by a school administrator. The module consists of help directly from Prof. Seeman, with guided readings from one of the books and the training video, and short reactions/exercises from the chapters - to help you apply these to specific concerns in your teaching. The module is completed at your convenience, via email.Upon successful completion of the course, each participant will receive:
