INCL 602 Classroom Management for Inclusive Classrooms

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course provides strategies for managing individual student and group behavior in the classroom. Develop a framework for understanding why children behave as they do in a classroom setting. Major concepts such as the drive to belong, private logic, birth order, goals of misbehavior, logical consequences, reflective listening, questioning skills and class meetings are explored. Examine types of patterns in students’ behaviors: attention getting, power struggles, revenge actions, and students who appear to be academically disabled but are not. Additionally, consider the links between the way adults respond to misbehaving children and how that response either feeds, extinguishes or has no effect on the target behavior. This course is a study of understanding for an inclusive classroom and examining adult response patterns to children’s misbehavior. Techniques include discussion, lecture, self-reflection, and case study evaluation of real life classroom situations. Practical application for K-12 teachers in all subject areas.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
