Classroom ManagementThis can be a most difficult task for even the most experienced teacher, but there are techniques to learn - and, yes, these are skills that can be learned. Classroom-management is more than just discipline. An organised environment is conducive to good behaviour, as are norms of behaviour, consequences for breach and routines. Good classroom-management means setting the stage for teaching and learning. The effective teacher knows how to keep the classroom orderly, the students organised, attentive and focused. The ultimate aim is to ensure that the students are academically productive. Effective classroom-management strategies reduce the risk of poor behaviour that might affect learning and maximises the chance that students will learn effectively.
