Classroom management is a topic of enduring concern for teachers, administrators, and the public. It consistently ranks as the first or second most serious educational problem in the eyes of the general public, and beginning teachers consistently rank it as their most pressing concern during their early teaching years. Management problems continue to be a major cause of teacher burnout and job dissatisfaction. Strangely, despite this enduring concern on the part of educators and the public, few researchers have chosen to focus on classroom management or to identify themselves with this critical field. This book has four primary goals: (1) to clarify the term classroom management; (2) to demonstrate to scholars and practitioners that there is a distinct body of knowledge that directly addresses teachers' managerial tasks; (3) to bring together disparate lines of research and encourage conversations across different areas of inquiry; and (4) to promote a vigorous agenda for future research in this area. The book is divided into 10 parts. Part I, Introduction, presents the initial chapters of the book: (1) Classroom Management as a Field of Inquiry (C. M. Evertson and C. S. Weinstein); and (2) History of Research on Classroom Management (J. Brophy). Part II, Alternative Paradigms for the Study of Classroom Management (J. Brophy), continues with chapters: (3) Behavioral Approaches to Classroom Management (T. J. Landrum and J. M.
