17. Leading, Supporting, & Coaching Classroom Management for Administrators

Program: RPDC - Agency for Teaching, Leading and Learning

Location: Park Central Office Building (ROOM 112) (Springfield, MO)

Audience: Administrators, Leadership teams, behavior coaches

Dates: 7/27/2022

"Effective classroom management is a key component of effective instruction, regardless of grade level, subject, pedagogy, or curriculum.” Consider this statement as a call for effective classroom management strategies for ALL. How confident are you that ALL staff consistently implement effective classroom practices to provide an engaging, predictable and safe learning environment for all students? How might you, as an instructional leader, lead, support, and provide coaching for your staff in reference to effective classroom management practices? These things we know: Effective classroom managers are known not only by what they do when misbehavior occurs, but by what they do to set their classrooms up for academic success and to prevent problems from occurring. In many classrooms, up to half of the school day is lost to discipline and other non-instructional activities. Academic learning time, or the amount of time that students are actively and productively engaged in learning, is a strong determinant of achievement. An effective classroom manager will clarify the behaviors needed to be successful in each classroom setting or activity, teach and review those expected behaviors routinely, catch and positively acknowledge students being successful, and provide immediate, objective correction when behavior does not meet expectations. An effective classroom manager intentionally plans and implements practices that positively impact engaged time; that proportion of instructional time where students are actively engaged in learning as evidenced by paying attention, responding frequently and accurately, completing work, and interacting appropriately with peers about assigned work. This session will offer you opportunities to learn about the 8 effective classroom practices, determine "non-negotiables” for your staff expectations, and explore walk-through tools/models. Time for networking with other leaders will be offered, in order to effectively lead, support, & coach successful classroom management.

"The same behaviors that reduce classroom disruptions are associated with increased student learning.” Jere Brophy & Thomas Good, 1986 Consider this question: "Do my actions/reactions positively or negatively reinforce student behaviors?” All behavior is functionally related to the teaching environment. Figuring out the function, what that student is trying to communicate through the behavior, requires some creative "detective work” and will help classroom teachers know how to respond to that behavior most effectively. In this interactive session educators will learn about and engage with the how and when to use specific, evidence-based classroom practices such as: ▶ Demonstrate active supervision of the classroom. ▶ Incorporate multiple opportunities to respond into your classroom teaching. ▶ Selectively use activity sequencing and choice as needed to maintain student engagement. ▶ Consider and adjust task difficulty to increase student success and diminish problem behavior. Intentionality in aligning and using these practices, like detective work, will lead to the "motive,” the behavior's function and reduce inappropriate behaviors in the classroom.

"Managing challenging behavior relieves stress within the entire school culture, provides more focused instructional time and increases the likelihood all our children will achieve academic and social success!” Consider a time when an individual (or a group of students) shifts from demonstrating the calm of expected behavior of working independently on an assigned academic task to displaying unexpected behaviors or inappropriate behaviors. Something (a request to complete a non-preferred task or to work with a non-preferred peer, experiencing an academic challenge, a comment made by a peer, a change in room temperature, hunger, etc) happens that triggers the student. Unexpected behaviors can quickly escalate in individual students. Understanding the pattern which the acting-out cycle occurs allows adults to plan for, and respond to, the event in a proactive manner. The goal is to ensure safety for the individual student, and all others involved, while helping the student learn more acceptable strategies to self-regulate when they feel anxious, upset, or angry. In this interactive session, you will learn how to identify the specific behaviors of the 7 phases of the Acting-Out Cycle and identify environmental supports that can be provided to intervene early in the acting-out cycle.
