Course Description
This course aims to help students develop the skills necessary for teaching their major
disciplines and will underpin the School Experience programme. It addresses current concerns
about student motivation and helps prospective and beginning teachers develop a philosophy
of classroom management that focuses on building connections with students and creating
safe, caring classrooms. Students are introduced to the organization of learning within the
classroom and how real teachers can adapt to any circumstance—physical room constraints,
curriculum requirements, challenging behaviors—and still be successful.

SEMINAR PRESENTATION
Reflection

“Classroom management is a very personal thing. There are a variety of ways to plan, implement
and review a personal model of classroom management that creates a positive learning
environment. Effective practitioners invariably demonstrate common elements of good practice,
that is, a professional philosophy consistent with sound theory, and an integrated approach to
planning, implementing and reviewing their classroom management practices. Good teachers
make themselves, and can judge themselves by the good learning they facilitate.”

topics in classroom management. In groups of 3 or 4, present your chosen topic. All
