Effective Classroom Management: A Teaching Strategy for a Maturing Profession.
Rancifer, Jesse L.
When beginning or experienced teachers lack control over pupils in their classrooms, they do not experience job satisfaction and become increasingly ineffective in their classroom work. Based on a review of the literature, this paper provides: (1) practical, workable strategies to assist experienced and inexperienced teachers to become more effective in the classroom, to experience more job satisfaction, and to maintain or gain greater control over their students; and (2) effective classroom strategies associated with the behavior of effective teachers when they establish and maintain order, promote appropriate student behavior, and facilitate effective and efficient instruction and learning. Strategies that teachers should practice are covered in three phases: (1) before school opens and the first day of school; (2) the first 3 weeks of class; and (3) throughout the year. In addition, the eight most frequently selected classroom managerial strategies are listed, and a cluster of major advocated strategies are outlined under the following headings: authoritarian, behavior modification, group process, instructional, and socioemotional. A classroom management option form for students is appended. (LL)
