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.

Drugs & Alcohol in Schools: Understanding Substance Use & Abuse
Addiction is defined as a "biopsychosocial" disease. Drugs & Alcohol in Schools will explore each of these three elements individually, and then, discuss their interactions and impact on the substance using person. The information will be further processed in order to more readily translate that information into practical application in the classroom.
Since the course is designed to increase your understanding and awareness of drugs and addiction, the final chapter builds upon what you have learned and offers options for how to respond. These options look at how to most effectively and appropriately manage the effects of substance use as it impacts your students and classroom. A review of various support groups and resources that are available is included. 2 undergraduate credits.

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.

This course is about violence in America, about the aggression in our schools, classrooms, streets, homes and elsewhere. The course speaks to the hate, the fights, the anger, the crimes committed and the victims in our schools and society. It is a course about students, children, teenagers, adults and neighbors, all of us. The course will consider the many forms of aggression, both criminal and otherwise; its costs and motivation; its perpetrators and targets; its likely and unlikely locations; its impact on our schools, the children; and, most especially, its several causes and promising solutions. The goal of this course is to help educators and adults in general better understand how aggression affects our lives and the lives of children. Hopefully such greater understanding and more skilled efforts at prevention will substantially reduce the aggression and violence that has become all too common in America's schools. 3 Undergraduate 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." 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" or "fix it" approach, but will aid educators in their ability to develop a safer environment in a school and community. 2 Undergraduate Credits.

This course is designed for classroom teachers in grades 7-12 as well as individuals interested in adolescent literacy. As the course progresses, students will take an in-depth look at what adolescent literacy looks like in the 21st century American classroom, including increased awareness of Common Core Standards as they apply to content area literacy instruction. The role literacy plays in how adolescents construct meaning of the world, and their place in it will forefront instruction, discussions, and assignments.

Literacy is no longer the sole responsibility of the reading and English teacher.

It is difficult for students to succeed in any content area if they cannot read instructions, interpret word problems, write up the results of a lab report, or interpret visual texts. Strategies and motivational techniques that encourage native English speakers and students who are learning English as a New Language to develop and refine their proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing, both in school and in out of school settings, will be explored.

The course is well aligned with NCTM standards which promote that students must learn mathematics with understanding and teachers must help the students see the importance and relevance of mathematics in everyday life. The course is divided into four themes,

(1) Fundamentals of Mathematics;
(2) Solving problems through concepts and computations;
(3) Investigations and Process Skills;
(4) Algebra and Functions, and built upon several content strands of Number Sense, Fractions, Decimals, Ration and Proportions, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement and Data Analysis.
