Advanced Classroom Management: Children As Change Agents
This course was developed as an alternative to traditional behavior modification approaches to changing student behavior. Although the course discusses and supports several behavior modification techniques, it goes beyond the boundaries of this approach. ACM teaches a social-cognitive approach to behavioral remediation. It compares and contrasts the two approaches, allowing students to gain a knowledge and understanding of each, but not refuting the use of either approach.
ACM incorporates the use of cognitive restructuring to aid in the modification of student behavior. The course teaches how to assist students in retraining their thinking so they may break old thought patterns that led to many aberrant behaviors.

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a process schools can and should use to help students who are struggling with academics or behavior. Even though RTI is primarily linked to special education and the early identification of learning problems, RTI is not just for students in special education. RTI is for all students and is based on the premise that a student might be struggling due to instruction or the curriculum in the past, or in the current classroom. Every teacher will have students who are struggling and whether it's short term or long term, RTI is a valuable tool. So, welcome to the class on Response to Intervention where you will learn what RTI is and how to use it in your classroom. 3 Graduate Credits.

Anger management strategies have become an important topic in schools, businesses, homes and communities. Our society is inundated with classes, books and counseling programs that explain various ways to "manage anger."½ Despite our best attempts, aggression and violence are still on the rise. This class will focus on developing new ways of handling violence without getting involved in the typical power struggles. Students will learn specific strategies and practical ideas to aid in the reduction of school violence. Key intervention ideas for developing a civil climate within each school will be presented, and identification and recognition of potential violence will be discussed. Included in this approach will be an emphasis on safety for students and educators. This course is not attempting to be a "cure all"½ or "fix it"½ approach, but will aid educators in their ability to develop a safer environment in a school and community. 2 Undergraduate Credits.
