What Do Students Believe about Effective Classroom Management? A Mixed-Methods Investigation in Western Australian High Schools
Egeberg, Helen; McConney, Andrew
Australian Educational Researcher, v45 n2 p195-216 Apr 2018
Students' views about teaching, learning, and school experiences are important considerations in education. The purpose of this study was to examine students' perceptions of teachers who create and maintain safe and supportive learning environments. To achieve this, a survey was conducted with 360 students to capture students' views on their classroom experiences. Follow-up focus group discussions were used to further elaborate and clarify students' perceptions. Despite varying school contexts, students provided consistent reports that effective classroom managers meet students' needs by developing caring relationships and controlling the classroom environment while developing student responsibility and engaging students in their learning.
