Managing behavior is a significant part of your job as a teacher and all teachers want to help their students succeed and become well-adjusted members of society. In this professional development course, you will gain a better understanding of what causes common behavioral problems in the classroom and the best ways to cope with them.

This course is part of the Solving Classroom Discipline Problems series.
In this course, you will:
- Determine what changes in society have created a demand for evolving disciplinary practices,
- Create an effective classroom discipline plan to cover day-to-day behavioral issues, and
- Interpret how to put ideas into action in your classroom through real-life scenarios set in elementary, middle and high school.
