Teach Like a Novice: Lessons from Beginning Teachers
Eckert, Jonathan
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n2 p13-18 Oct 2014
Classroom management is the greatest challenge for beginning teachers and continues to develop over their careers. Much can be learned from beginning teachers through reflection and the perspective that experience brings. Seven strategies can help improve classroom management: Maintain a growth mindset; try new ideas, reflect, then accept, reject, or modify; do not dismiss extrinsic motivation; give students a reason to pay attention; be demanding; build important relationships; and fill the classroom.
