Classroom and Behavior Management for Special Needs Students, Grades 6-12 – No. ESE-ED-203

Managing behavior balances with understanding our learners and their learning styles. Differentiating for, various student instructional needs is key to harnessing learning style and other data. While much of it is about student engagement, it is also about knowing them, and how they learn, enough to engage them in learning more. Whether they learn kinesthetically (using physical, hands-on), or inter-personally (social) for example, gives us the opportunity to craft activities and performance tasks geared to garnering better behavior that then allows us to help them academically.  Participants in this course will learn how to use learning style information to develop effective behavior management strategies.
