EPSE 311 | Cultivating Supportive School and Classroom Environments

This course focuses on building teachers’ competencies in creating school and classroom environments that are safe, supportive, caring and respectful. Recognizing the long-standing, historical debates regarding discipline and classroom management, this course provides teacher candidates with an understanding of how traditional discipline and classroom management practices that have emphasized reactive and punitive approaches have given way to a more recent focus on positive approaches, including self-discipline, internalization and restorative practices that focus on building and preserving relationships in an effort to promote positive classroom contexts for learning.
