Behavioral Management

On this prac at Concordia behavioral management has been the least of my concerns. I would say close to 98% of the students are exceptionally well behaved with a few students slightly misbehaving. The school is big on behavioral management alluding me to websites such as the essential skills for classroom management found at https://the-teacher.wikispaces.com/Classroom+Management or http://beginningtoteach.qct.edu.au/Teachingandlearning/ClassroomManagement.html. … More Behavioral Management
