Introduction

Hey there and welcome to Creating and Maintaining Classroom Management!


You are probably here because when it comes to classroom management, you realized that textbooks just don’t do the trick by adequately preparing you (or because this is an assignment). Personally, I know that I never read or learned about all the different routines and plans that a teacher needs to set in place so that the classroom does not become a zoo! How could you know without firsthand experience? After all, with each new day comes new challenges, obstacles and situations! In my experience, I have taught mostly in the elementary grades and some high school special education classes. However, classroom management is important for teachers of all grades. Therefore, I want to introduce a course specifically about the dreaded topic of ♥Classroom Management♥

Smile scared.jpg I know how you are feeling, but don't worry! We will get through this together!

Before we begin this course, let's take a look at a short video which both demonstrates the struggles that may occur within a classroom and attempts to create an ideal representation of classroom management: David Spade on managing classroom behavior
