Course Description

There are many books and approaches to student behavior management for educators. What makes this course unique is that the recommended strategies are specifically designed for teachers of art, music and PE. The author, Michael Linsin, is a former regular classroom teacher and is now a PE who understands what strategies are most effective for specialists. The reality is - what works in a regular classroom does not necessarily work in another setting. The challenges can be quite unique. This is a great book for K-12 specialists who are interested in learning new techniques for managing the most challenging student behaviors.
