The Effects of Clinical Experiences on the Understanding of Classroom Management Techniques
Cushman, Carey Anne Aycock; Kempy, Andrew
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v4 n3 p44-58 2012
For teacher educators, classroom management education is one of the least researched aspects of the profession. The purpose of this study was to determine if classroom management was most effectively learned through textbook analysis coupled with classroom discussion, or the experience of observing and practicing classroom management in the clinical experience. The results of this study suggest that the clinical experience is the major contributor to feelings of confidence in classroom management situations. There is a significant difference in confidence between the classroom understanding and the post-clinical experience in regard to general classroom management understandings and confidence.
