For many teachers, managing student behavior has become a challenge. Behavioral problems such as noncompliance, defiance, inattention, and aggression are an everyday occurrence. These day-to-day challenges steadily wear down the good and positive attitudes present at the beginning of the school year. This course offers strategies to help teachers look at behaviors more objectively, perhaps even from the students point of view. By understanding the student, the teacher can shift the focus from controlling the student to teaching the student personal responsibility, allowing the student to become a self-regulated learner.
