The instructor believes there is no single more powerful factor in a classroom than the teacher. Each teacher candidate must strive to develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to meet the needs of each learner that enters his or her classroom. An effective classroom manager can ensure each learner has the opportunity to learn to the best of his or her potential in a safe, caring environment. To build a classroom community one must have knowledge of various theories and methods, skills to develop a climate of success for all, and dispositions to be an equitable, caring, professional. Stating this premise the instructor will engage each learner in studying a variety of theories and methods, reflecting and developing ways to build a positive classroom environment, analyzing effective methods for disciplinary interventions, and respecting and encouraging the diversity each individual will bring to the classroom setting.

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Timely completion is built into assignment criteria. Late work of daily assignments (i.e. quality indicators/standards, reflective writing, academic articles, etc.) will be accepted up to one week late, but the grade will be reduced an additional 10 percent of earned grade (i.e. if earned an 85% grade will be recorded as 75%). Due dates are on the class syllabus. Late submission of resource notebook, book, book sharing/lesson plan, and final will result in a grade reduction of 25%. Absolutely no late work will be accepted after the assigned time of the final. Any missing assignments after the final’s date will be recorded as a “zero”.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
