Course Description

Essential question:  How can I foster a respectful learning community?  To answer this question, we will consider several other questions.  How should a teacher present him/herself?  What does a teacher do in the first days of school? What are some principles and procedures for designing classroom routines and promoting teacher-parent communication?  How do we encourage students to own their own behavior and problems?  What does culturally responsive management look like?  This course will discuss these questions along with many more while using the experiences from internship.
