Jan. 23: CHAMPS: A Proactive and Positive Approach to Classroom Management


January 23, 2023

CHAMPS, a framework developed by Safe and Civil Schools, offers a comprehensive classroom management plan that includes proactive, positive, and instructional strategies to address student behavior. Research has demonstrated that manipulating the following five key variables within a classroom management plan will improve student behavior in the classroom: Structure, Teach Behavior Expectations, Observe and Supervise, Interact Positively, and Correct Fluently (STOIC). When implemented, staff are more prepared to teach and effectively respond to student behavior. Within this training, participants will have opportunities to reflect on current practices, develop STOIC strategies for their setting, and collaborate with other participants. In addition, sessions include group discussion, videos, and work time to meet the learning objectives below.
