Mike Klein, Professional Learning Coordinator at Highlander Institute, joins Nick and Christina to talk about classroom culture versus behavior management. 01:25 Defining classroom culture and behavior management 03:38 Classroom culture is not something you personalize for the kids who need it urgently and visibly. It’s something that you create to support everybody in the classroom. 04:16 If we’re looking at both terms together, classroom culture is more environmental and proactive, and behavior management is more (about) response to individual actions. 04:29 Behavior management is maybe a subcomponent of classroom culture. 05:26 Can you take into consideration behaviors when you’re setting the expectations for your classroom culture? Would you be able to do both by setting classroom culture in the right way? 07:51 Do you have any examples? What is the ideal way of setting classroom culture in the right manner to make sure that there’s an impact day to day for students? 08:06 Routines and procedures in the classroom 09:41 Rolling out technology in the classroom 10:08 Do you have an example of a school or a teacher that’s doing this in an effective way? 12:37 Using hand signals in the classroom, instead of needing to say things out loud 14:39 For teachers listening to this, what is the first thing they can do to take action on this tomorrow to start to set the right tone for classroom culture?
