Classroom Management for Elementary Teachers. Third Edition.
Evertson, Carolyn M.; And Others
This guide to classroom management, which incorporates the essential features of classroom organization, management, and discipline, provides information to help elementary school teachers establish effective classroom management systems. The text emphasizes prevention through planning and addresses decisions teachers must make in the typical classroom, e.g., arranging physical space, choosing rules and procedures, planning and conducting instruction, maintaining appropriate behavior, using good communication skills, dealing with problem behavior, and managing special groups. In addition, the volume provides checklists to organize concepts and principles into usable, concise formats, makes use of case studies, includes activities dealing with and correcting classroom problems, and links the concepts of instructional management with behavior/classroom management. Nine chapters are organized as follows: (1) "Organizing Your Classroom and Materials"; (2) "Choosing Rules and Procedures"; (3) "Managing Student Work"; (4) "Getting Off to a Good Start"; (5) "Planning and Conducting Instruction"; (6) "Maintaining Appropriate Student Behavior"; (7) "Communication Skills for Teaching"; (8) "Managing Problem Behaviors"; and (9) "Managing Special Groups." Answer keys for chapter activities are appended. (Contains approximately 50 references.) (LL)
