oemss-setting-up-behavior-class-squareSetting Up Your Behavior Classroom for Success

July 10, 2024   |  In-Person Session

The self-contained classroom is a place where special education teachers can accommodate individual students who typically exhibit the greatest learning and behavioral challenges. While these classes offer the benefit of smaller class size and higher staff-to-student ratio, the task of organizing the classroom to minimize behavior issues and maximize student learning can feel daunting. Although setting up a self-contained classroom can feel overwhelming, with the right preparation and organization, you will be able to create a positive and productive classroom environment.

 

During this in-person session, participants will learn the essential components needed for a successful classroom. Event will be held at The Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD Southwest Community Service Center. Directions available here.
