This course provides an introduction to the teacher?s role in managing the classroom, instruction, and evaluation as it relates to teaching the essential secondary (grades 6-12) school competencies. Models of teaching are briefly introduced to support new teachers in developing a broader perspective regarding teaching practice and their implications for classroom management. Throughout the course, students will investigate the effective (authoritative) teacher perspective with respect to each model with the following teaching-learning goals in mind: 1) Organizing the classroom for a productive learning environment; 2) Building positive student-teacher relationships for culturally responsive instruction; 3) Handling challenging circumstances with effective strategies; 4) Supporting students with special needs; and 5) Assessing and evaluating student understanding and skills.
