COMP - Workshop

Course Description 
To receive credit, students must attend a COMP workshop (both initial day and follow up), enroll for credit, and complete assignments. This course is comprised of activities that have been designed to teach strategies to teachers that will promote success in their classrooms and schools. Each aspect of the course will highlight areas of concern regarding classroom environment, organization and management. Specific techniques and strategies designed to facilitate a better understanding of the way to structure a classroom to create an environment more conducive to learning will be woven throughout the course. In addition, because this course is based on educational research focusing on classroom management and organization, a special emphasis will be placed on current research on that topic. 

Course Outcomes
The primary goal of this course is to help the participants improve their overall instructional and behavioral management skills through planning, implementing, and maintaining effective classroom practices. An additional goal is improvement of student task engagement and reduction of inappropriate and disruptive behavior through well-planned and appropriate academic tasks and activities. It is expected that by the end of the course, participants will have a more thorough understanding of the current research on classroom organization and management. The ultimate goal is that the teachers will be able to apply this knowledge to the classroom and school setting.
