UW-River Falls Offers Classroom Management Course
Educators and parents interested in learning K-12 classroom management techniques may register for a one-credit course offered by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Outreach and Graduate Studies.
The course will be at the Osceola (Wis.) High School on Friday, March 7 from 4:30 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, March 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Participants will learn to build relationships with students and create a strong yet supportive teaching environment. A key aspect of the course is mastering effective skills that can be used to avoid power struggles and foster cooperation, responsibility and respect in the classroom or home.
Instructor John Brickner is a certified counselor who has worked with adolescents for more than 15 years in the classroom "One of the biggest challenges facing new and old teachers alike is classroom management," says Brickner. "The format of the class is very relaxed with a great deal of interaction as we learn some very practical and useful classroom management techniques."
