The Classroom Organization Management Program (COMP) is a professional development course for graduate level educators developed by Dr. Alene Harris & Dr. Barbara Mullins to assist teachers in creating conditions for learning in their classrooms. University of the Pacific will provide three semester units (hours) of professional development credit for COMP workshops. Professional Development Credit is designed for graduate level educators for professional growth and salary advancement purposes.

Credit Information

Three (3) Semester units of post-baccalaureate professional development credit will be awarded upon successful completion of course requirements. Designed exclusively to meet the needs of educators and administrators for professional upgrading and salary advancement, the credit is not applicable to a degree program at Pacific. District approval is recommended before enrolling as tuition is non-refundable. Credit for courses is awarded during the semester that coursework is completed and graded.

Course Description

To receive credit, students must attend a COMP workshop (both initial day and follow up), enroll for credit, and complete assignments. This course is comprised of activities that have been designed to teach strategies to teachers that will promote success in their classrooms and schools. Each aspect of the course will highlight areas of concern regarding classroom environment, organization and management. Specific techniques and strategies designed to facilitate a better understanding of the way to structure a classroom to create an environment more conducive to learning will be woven throughout the course. In addition, because this course is based on educational research focusing on classroom management and organization, a special emphasis will be placed on current research on that topic.

Course Outcomes

The primary goal of this course is to help the participants improve their overall instructional and behavioral management skills through planning, implementing, and maintaining effective classroom practices. An additional goal is improvement of student task engagement and reduction of inappropriate and disruptive behavior through well-planned and appropriate academic tasks and activities. It is expected that by the end of the course, participants will have a more thorough understanding of the current research on classroom organization and management. The ultimate goal is that the teachers will be able to apply this knowledge to the classroom and school setting.

Course Fee 
The course fee is $255

Course Requirements
Course participants must choose one assignment per module. One assignment from each of the eight modules must be submitted.
Each assignment option begins with the number of the module from the manual. For instance, for Module 2, you may choose to complete either Assignment #2 or #3 because those two assignments are the ones offered for Module 2. For Module 4, you may choose between Assignment #4, #5, or #6 because those are the ones offered for Module 4. 
Please be aware that not all modules have more than one assignment from which to choose. For instance, Module 1 only has one assignment option, so that would mean that Assignment #1 is the required assignment for Module 1. 

All papers submitted should include your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Please send copies (not originals) of assignments to Dr. Mullins' attention (see address below), as assignments will not be returned.
