Classroom Management Course Details

Are you ready to create a classroom community that runs more effectively WITHOUT Rules?!

Classroom Management: When the Rules Don’t Work is an online course designed to take your classroom management beyond the rules. It’s designed to help you create a classroom environment that effectively manages itself through building community, engagement, and several other positive practices that will make you wonder, “Why didn’t I ditch the rules long ago?!”

You should Ditch The Rules!

You probably haven’t thought about ditching the rules until now because no one told you you could! We are here to give you permission! Go ahead andchallenge the tradition of classroom management being rooted in a set of rules, we did!

We’re not here to just give you permission though, we are here to SHOW you exactly HOW to do it and tell you WHY it works!

How do we know ditching the rules works? Because we have LIVED It!

When the four of us began discussing our own classroom management “failures” from the past, we realized there was one common element: the rules. When we needed them, when they were supposed to “solve the problem” they didn’t work.

At the same time, when we talked about what did work, we realized we all had our own stories of success that had nothing to do with the rules. We also realized there were some commonalities between the different strategies we had individually used in our classrooms over the years.

How is this course different from other Classroom Management Courses?

Our individual experiences is one of the things that makes Classroom Management:When the Rules Don’t Work especially special! You are getting the expertise of FOUR veteran educators, rather than the experience of one teacher.

The combined classroom experience and expertise of all 4 Core Coaches! That’s 50 years of combined experience at the classroom, school, and district level.

Multiple perspectives from teaching in several diverse school settings across all types of communities: in Title 1, public, private and charter schools from grades K through High School.

Expertise as classroom teachers, school coaches, and professional educators who have presented development in individual schools, state conferences, professional conferences.

Together, we reflected on all of our own successes and failures in classroom management over the years. We then identified our most effective strategies, and compiled them to share with you!

the 6 Modules to Classroom Management

The 6 modules are the 6 areas that all four of us view as the most important to creating effective classroom management beyond the rules.These are 6 areas that we found success with in our own classrooms, as well as what we have seen other teachers have success with.

Several of these are most likely familiar to you in some way. Some you may have thought about in areas outside of classroom management. Some you may have tried on your own for classroom management.

What we offer to make each of these areas new for you, is our combined experience and perspective that takes into account several different school communities, students, research, and proven success. We believe what we have created offers you a new way of thinking about and implementing these 6 areas – with specific regards to classroom management.

How is this course different from other Classroom Management Courses?

Every lesson you see above includes not just coaching, but hands-on application! The most important part of this course is giving you time to explore how these lessons and strategies will help YOU effectively manage YOUR classroom! That means taking time to not just listen to our experiences, but to reflect on your own! 

Included in every Module is a note-taking packet with prompts for reflections in each lesson. This will be a great way for you to personalize this course and reflect on which strategies you think will work best for your classroom. We know every classroom is different, which is why we’ve included SEVERAL different strategies & ready to use resources for each lesson as well! 

In addition to everything in the online modules, you have access to all of The Core Coaches as well! We believe we have covered A LOT of scenarios and addressed several questions that may have been addressed, BUT we can’t anticipate every single scenario! So throughout the course you will have several opportunities to ask us questions & get our coaching perspective. 

We recognize that spending MORE money on your career can feel like a LOT! Unfortunately, schools don’t always provide teachers with the most effective professional development and so the choice and cost lies with each teacher to invest on their own. We truly believe this is an investment – in YOU! You deserve to have a classroom that runs smoothly so that you can do what you love – TEACH! The lessons and strategies we provide you with go beyond this year too – they help you manage your classroom effectively for years to come!
