Classroom Management and Learning in Elementary Schools.
This paper reviews recent literature on classroom management, focusing specifically on teachers' techniques for organizing students, space, time and materials in order to keep a class running smoothly so that learning can take place. Four main areas of classroom management research which are relevant to elementary school teachers are identified and discussed. The first area deals with advance planning of classroom logistics. The second involves preparing students for their classroom role. The third concerns teacher manaqement behaviors involved in minute-to-minute classroom interactions with students. The final area deals with the characteristics of formal lesson structures that affect management behaviors. As each area is reviewed, management methods suggested by the research are described.
