Understanding Classroom Management: How to Create a Healthy Learning Environment is Sunbridge’s latest pedagogical leadership workshop, relevant for administrators, pedagogical leaders, faculty chairs, and grades 1-8 teachers.
With Karen Crandall and Anna Silber
Understanding Classroom Management addresses a topic that is integral to everyone’s teaching life.
Through presentation and large and small group discussions and activities, this workshop will help you discover:
- Your own approach to classroom management
- The ideal elements of a healthy learning environment
- Common obstacles that detract from the health of your classroom
Your takeaway will be an understanding of the tools needed to inform and improve your teaching and the knowledge of how to employ them in creating a healthy learning environment for you and your students.
