The South Carolina Teaching Standards (SCTS) 4.0 self-paced learning module is an e-learning experience that offers an in-depth look at indicators that create and promote an environment where teachers establish clear rules and expectations for learning and behavior. You will explore strategies to manage disruptive student behavior. You will discover how timely management of student behavior is critical so that productive instruction can take place in your classroom. You will take into consideration and ask yourself if your instructional style facilitates or inhibits proper student behavior. Finally, you will use guiding questions to create a PowerPoint that details and explains how you plan to manage student behavior. This module is not designed to enhance or replicate evaluator training, but rather to refine and extend an educator’s growth and development.
*This learning module requires a major assessment submission that may make use of student data, collaboration/observations with other teachers, or work to be done with students in the classroom. When enrolling in this learning module, it is strongly recommended that you are actively teaching.
