A significant body of research attests to the fact that the "lack of" classroom organization and behavior management competencies cause educators to have high levels of stress and one reason why educators leave the profession. Therefore, effective classroom management is very important for any educator. Whether you are the new teacher excited to take on the world or the seasoned veteran who has probably experienced about every type of student there can be, effective classroom management can make a significant difference for teacher and student success. And as we know, achievement gaps can occur for many reasons. One significant cause is due to the disruption of the classroom instructor, but without the ability to manage the classroom, the best lessons remain undelivered. Consequently, effective and consistent classroom management strategies are proven to save instruction time and improve the school climate. Many school administrators who have implemented research-based classroom management strategies have experienced a reduction in office referrals and out-of-school suspensions. In addition, low achieving schools have increased student achievement by gaining back valuable teaching time that is so often lost to matters of discipline. This lively, interactive workshop presentation will provide educators with evidence-based, field-tested techniques and strategies that can be used immediately in the classroom. These strategies are proven to eliminate challenging student behaviors by 70-90%, and to catapult student achievement to "new" and higher levels. No longer will educators have to be constantly dealing with classroom discipline disruptions. Instead, they will have what is really important---time to teach.
