This course is designed to help teachers create classrooms in which all students will learn and flourish. The course moves from setting up and managing an effective classroom (universal preventive strategies), to designing curricular, instructional, and behavioral strategies and supports (supportive strategies), to addressing academic and behavioral challenges and problems (corrective strategies). The needs of various student populations, including English Language Learners, special education students, and students of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, will be addressed. The course will involve class meetings, online work, and classroom research.
