Focus on Elementary: Love, Engagement, Support, and Consistency: A Recipe for Classroom Management
Prior, Jennifer
Childhood Education, v90 n1 p68-70 2014
Classroom management is perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of an elementary teacher's job. Most focus on discipline when they think about managing a classroom, but much more is involved. Without an effectively managed classroom, teachers face a loss of instructional time, and experience stress and feelings of inadequacy (Sayeski & Brown, 2011). Love, engagement, support, and consistency were the four ingredients Jennifer Prior used to create a classroom environment that helped children work well together, focus on learning, and enjoy being part of a classroom community. This article outlines how these ingredients can form a foundation for a successful learning environment at all levels of elementary schooling.
