Transformative Classroom Management
Transformative Classroom Management (TCM) is a system for creating maximum classroom function and effectiveness. It had been shown to improve student achievement and promote a "psychology of success in the classroom." TCM is aligned with the highest levels of the ASSC SCAI. Using TCM is the most effective way to move up the pathway to higher levels of function and effectiveness. What our research shows us it that most schools limit their growth and improvement by knowingly or unknowingly using classroom management practices that are based in controlling, coercing, coning, and bribing students and so never produce the levels of self-direction and responsibility necessary to encourage school improvement. TCM is the only book and system that explains in practical detail how to create the high functioning student centered community (i.e., the level 3 school).
