Classroom Management Plan

Classroom Management Plan

This is a great resource if you are asked to turn in a classroom management plan and have no idea where to begin! Perhaps you are a new teacher and haven't thought about it? Or maybe you're a seasoned teacher who has never had to put it in writing? Sections Included: Rules and Expectations Organization Discipline Tardies/Absences Classroom Procedures Classroom Jobs All sections are filled with details that I used inside of my classroom - Obviously, this may not work for you. The document is in Microsoft Word format, so you can change things to fit your needs!

Anti Bullying 101

Anti Bullying 101

Bullying has become epidemic in our schools, and no matter how you slice it, this behavior has gotten out of hand. Teachers, administrators, and parents are all looking to something that will just make the problem go away. There is not one program or intervention that will stop bullying. It takes a concerted effort of teachers, administrators, parents, and students to help create a climate of respect and responsibility. Successful schools that have really made a difference use data-driven programs and remain consistent in their efforts day after day and year after year. Anti-Bullying 101 is designed to support whatever program your school is using and to provide a resource for teachers to call upon when the going gets tough. Some of the tips might surprise you. They not only address bullying but also provide ways to build positive relationships, improve the attitude of your students, and provide some life lessons that we all can learn from. So read on: Anti-Bullying 101 will prove to be the supplement that you and your school need to help stop bullying. It is very basic and very easy—use them in school, use them with your own children, and apply them in life.

Can You Handle The Truth?

Can You Handle The Truth?

Society seems to want to withhold the truth and make everyone believe that they are smarter than what they are and that their behavior is based upon circumstance, their environment, or lack of therapy or medication. Facing the truth about their abilities and work ethic can put a student back on track, and help them choose a good vocation, and understand and how they need to improve academically and behaviorally. This one hour presentation will give teachers the tools to confront students without condemning them and help them help students to evaluate their efforts and work to realistically look at their performance.

The Real 3R's: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience

The Real 3R's: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience

These are not your garden variety lesson plans. They were written to include one plan for each of the 3R’s with the inclusion of suggestions, links, and podcasts that the reader can click on to listen to. If you purchase a hard copy of the book I have included the link where applicable so it can be copied into your browser. I have gone very narrow and very deep and tried to really hit a home run with the activities. I also included character qualities associated with each one of the 3R’s and in the area of resiliency have included some activities and suggestions that are related to these qualities that can be used in a classroom, or in a home. There is also included a bonus course at the end of the book as well.
