Classroom management impacts every level of instruction. Creating an environment conducive to academic achievement and ensuring school safety depend upon each teacher having sufficient classroom management skills. This presentation will demonstrate how the CHAMPs interactive video program and the PEGS simulation software, in conjunction with the learning management system, Angel, can be used to develop classroom management skills. Methods of practicing management skills without affecting actual preK- 12 students will be demonstrated. Workshop attendees will participate in actual program activities: 1. Participants will be paired to perform a CHAMPs activity where they proactively plan for a typical classroom transition. 2. Participants will experience PEGS simulations of interactions with a variety of students in a variety of school settings. Organization and delivery of classroom management training via ANGEL will be demonstrated.
