In this course, you will explore numerous classroom management models and theories. You will begin this journey by choosing one model to research for this paper. This assignment provides you an opportunity to develop your understanding of one particular model. In this paper, you will choose one of the theories listed below. The research project should include the following elements:
- Introduction: The introduction should state the name and author of the model or theory you have chosen along with a short overview. Explain why you chose this model or theory over others.
- Body: The body of the paper contains the key points of the model or theory with specific explanations of those points and examples of how they would work in the classroom. Include a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of implementing this model. A minimum of three credible, reliable sources should be used to support your writing.
- Summary and Conclusions: In this section you should discuss how you would implement three of the key points of the model or theory into your own classroom (noting any changes in your present management style you would need to make or any training you feel you might need) to make this implementation successful. If you disagree with one of the key points, discuss why that point could not be successfully implemented into your classroom and support this reasoning with evidence from another model or theory.
This paper should be 2–3 pages in length. Present the research project in APA format, with a title page and properly formatted citations and reference list.
