Effective Classroom Management Classroom Management is maintaining order in the classroom Teachers need to create an environment that promotes learning. Teachers are responsible for helping students manage and direct their own learning. Why it Works?
Importance of Planning Effective classrooms display clearly understood and monitored rules and procedures. Student expectations are explained and implemented. The physical space of the classroom is organized and uncluttered. When teachers plan carefullly disruptions are likely to occur.
Ineffective Classroom Management No child left behind makes all student scores in regards to state testing accountable. Discipline students need to be monitored and discipline needs to be maintained in the classroom. This makes it hard for some teachers and requires good planning.
The Don’ts of Classroom Management Do not publicly discipline a student as this will lead more off task behaviors. Do not lose control of your emotions as they will learn what buttons of yours to push. Only refer students with disciplinary referrals for major infractions as you are handing over your problem to someone else.
Research Purpose The purpose of this research is to understand what makes classroom management successful or unsuccessful.

This is important to demonstrate to teachers that they need to plan out their instruction and be monitor student behavior in the classroom.
