Effective management of a classroom setting is the first and most important way in which a teacher establishes boundaries, structures, routines and expectations within the classroom. With a clear system for classroom management, all stakeholders (teachers, children, parents) can progress through the year with a clear sense of appropriate behavior. Above and beyond a teacher’s awareness of classroom management theory is their ability to choose the correct strategy for unique situations that present themselves in the classroom on a daily basis. Having an established toolkit for managing students and lessons is the surest way to enable educators to feel competent and confident in their classrooms.
