This document presents the methodology and literature review for the research report "Classroom Management Strategies to Address the Needs of Sudanese Refugee Learners" (ED499673), which examined the extent to which English language, literacy and numeracy teachers used classroom management strategies to meet the needs of adult Sudanese refugee learners. This study utilised a qualitative approach to identify existing classroom management practices in the field, to explore the complexities surrounding such practices with a view to gaining new perspectives, and to identify ways of changing or improving practice in the light of the study's findings. Participants in this study consisted of specialist English language, literacy and numeracy teachers in Western Australia and New South Wales currently teaching Sudanese refugee learners and people with expertise in refugee issues or in community work with Sudanese refugees. Data for analysis was gathered from the following sources: (1) electronic survey; (2) telephone interviews; and (3) consultations with experts (face to face, telephone and email). This document contains a detailed account of the processes and findings from all three of the above sources of information. It also includes the research instruments used for the electronic survey and the semi-structured telephone interviews. (Contains 24 tables.)
