Classroom Management Guidelines for Teacher Education.
Burden, Paul R.
Historically, preservice teacher education programs have not provided their students, in a systematic manner, with knowledge, methods, or practice to produce effective classroom management. A systematic approach to classroom management is recommended that would deal with advance planning and preparation before the school year, and the establishment of procedures and routines that would be maintained throughout the year. Emphasis would be on well chosen and prepared academic activities which would focus students' attention and engagement. A detailed outline is given in this paper of a preservice teacher education course, offered prior to student teaching, and specifically designed to provide students with a comprehensive, skill-oriented approach to discipline. The following classroom management topics are covered in the course: (1) a continuum of approaches to classroom management and discipline; (2) understanding students' personal and academic needs; (3) clarifying teachers' beliefs, values, and goals; (4) management of instruction; (5) managing records; and (6) planning for the first days of school.
