The goal of classroom behavior management is to develop a safe and positive learning environment. Reflecting on the principles of developmental theories, culturally responsive classroom management, and systems-based and principle-centered approaches, three basic goals of classroom management emerge, i.e., to create a safe and positive learning environment in which all students are treated respectfully and equitably; to provide opportunities for students to learn rules and the consequences of their choices; and to teach students to manage their own behaviors while providing opportunities to learn social skills.
With these goals in mind, discuss how you would develop a universal design for a classroom that takes cultural diversity into consideration. What strategies would you include? What developmental theories will guide your universal design? Ethical conduct encompasses many behaviors. Discuss teachers’ ethical obligations to create culturally responsive classrooms.
