EDUX 6010 (1, 2 or 3 Units available).  This course asks educators to think about classroom management as a way of interacting with students.

Classroom Management: Managing Challenging Behavior Enroll

EDUX 6020 (1, 2, or 3 Units available).   This course offers strategies to help teachers look at behaviors more objectively, perhaps even from the student's point of view.

For many teachers, managing student behavior has become a challenge. Behavioral problems such as noncompliance, defiance, inattention, and aggression are an everyday occurrence. These day-to-day challenges steadily wear down the good and positive attitudes present at the beginning of the school year.

As our educational system has moved toward a model encouraging the least restrictive environment for all students, more and more students with diverse learning needs are now included in the regular classroom.
