Improving Elementary Classroom Management: A School-Based Training Program for Beginning the Year.
Evertson, Carolyn M.
This study was one of a series of field experiments designed to accomplish three purposes: (1) to validate research-based principles of classroom organization and management found in correlational research to be related to instructional and managerial effectiveness in elementary classrooms (grades 1-6); (2) to determine if school district personnel and other teachers could conduct management workshops and collect data on teachers' use of the principles; and (3) to assess whether professional development workshops in classroom management could provide additional skills to teachers already trained in the state's instructional skills program. Results showed that workshops and classroom observations could be accomplished by personnel, and the experimental group exceeded the control group in use of key management principles, had better student task engagement, and had less inappropriate behavior. This study supports similar findings in secondary classrooms. (Author)
