Effective Classroom Management at the Beginning of the School Year.
Emmer, Edmund T.; Evertson, Carolyn M.
The crucial importance of beginning-of-the-year activities in establishing good behavior patterns in the elementary classroom is asserted. Observations were made of two groups of teachers who were very different in management effectiveness throughout a school year. A number differences between the two groups' first- day and beginning-of-the-year activities were noted. Examples of the behavior of these teachers are presented with discussions on observed student reactive behaviors. It is concluded that effective classroom organization and management during the year can be predicted from the first several weeks of the school year. (JD)
