- Complete the Registration Form.
- Class size is usually 5-10 participants, so that you can get optimal,
individual attention and help during the course.
- The course starts on a Monday, and goes for 7 weekly Assignments, given out each Monday or before, and then due on Saturday. However, students have more than two weeks after the last Assignment to complete the course. (Extensions are also possible.)
The Assignments consist of: weekly guided readings in the text (about 2 Chapters/wk); training exercises to improve skills; sharing answers with other educators in the class, and short written responses to these via email - so that you can do the homework at your convenience. The assignments take about 3 hours per week.
- You will be able to view demonstrations of the book's suggestions
at your own convenience on your own training video. And, you will be able
to choose skill-training exercises at the end of each chapter that will
help you practice new skills to manage your specific concerns.
- Those who are already teaching will be able to try and apply these
new skills on the job, with back-up from Prof. Seeman.
- You will be able to share and discuss your problems, questions, and
answers with the other students in this class at any time at the special
Class Discussion site online via email
or, if you wish, a private chat at your own convenience (see 8. below).
All communications will be with total privacy and confidentiality using
your own course nickname and password (Privacy
- There are no exams or research papers. You are just asked to write
a final set of guidelines for yourself for being a better teacher from
what you have learned in the course. The course is a seminar of professionals
where you can work on the areas you want to improve regarding
your own teaching and classroom management skills. The style and methods
of each teacher are respected; fellow students do not judge one another.
- You will be able to communicate directly with the instructor via email
any time, and have the instructor as your private consultant regarding
any of your education problems. There is no need for specific commitments
to time or day; you will be able to receive and reply to emails any
time that is best for you. There are no required class time meetings,
nor synchronous chats, unless you want to arrange that with one of your
fellow students in the class.
- During the first week, we will all just share our concerns and the
problems we have had, or fear we will have. You will learn that you
are not alone: handling "discipline problems" is the most
reported problem nationally among teachers of all grades. The instructor
will set up a guide for you to start working on preventing and handling
your specific problems. We will also read the first chapters: "You're
Not Alone" and "Using this Book as a Handbook".
- During the other six weeks, we will all be guided in our reading of:
Preventing Classroom Discipline Problems; A Classroom Management
Handbook. We will share our specific problems, try training exercises
together to improve our skills, and chat with each other to work on
our specific classroom problems with the guidance of Prof. Seeman. Click
here for the Table of Contents of the Handbook. Also see: Course Syllabus.
- At the end of the successful completion of the training during this
professional seminar/course, you will receive A
Certificate of Competence in Classroom Management and the Prevention
of Discipline Problems and A Letter
Of Reference for your use from the instructor, a nationally
recognized expert in classroom management, and qualifications to become
a member of The Educator's Support Forum.
