Equal attention to Learning Supports is essential so that:
- Every student will demonstrate academic achievement and be prepared for success after high school;
- Every student will be supported by highly prepared and effective teachers and school leaders; and
- Every school will offer a safe and healthy learning environment for all students.
Classroom Management and Discipline
Classroom management is one of the most powerful factors in affecting student outcomes. Classroom management refers to the way a teacher organizes and manages variables of the curriculum, time, space, and interactions with students.
Effective classroom management and discipline procedures include the following:
- the teaching of classroom rules and procedures;
- the teaching of social and emotional skills;
- acknowledgement of appropriate behavior and desired social skills;
- differential attention and response to inappropriate behaviors in a positive way;
- the utilization of a variety of instructional modes;
- the maintenance of well-organized student learning materials;
- effective time management; and
- the promotion of emotional, behavioral, and cognitive engagement and re-engagement of all students.
