Strengthening Professional Development Partnerships while Bridging Classroom Management Instruction and Practice
Monroe, Ann Elizabeth; Blackwell, Sarah Elizabeth; Pepper, Susan Kaye
Professional Educator, v34 n2 Fall 2010
Classroom management is often noted as one of the most influential factors in determining success for first-year teachers and as the most influential factor in students' academic success (Marzano & Marzano, 2003). However, according to Haycock (2006), nearly half of this country's new teachers leave the classroom within their first five years, and for many of these teachers, the struggle with classroom management is the number one reason they leave the profession (Weiner, 2002). While school systems have responsibility in the ongoing professional development of their new hires, teacher preparation programs must also examine the role they play in building the foundation upon which their graduates develop and grow. Preparing new teachers to successfully manage a classroom is one of the most important tasks of teacher education programs. A strong partnership with local schools provides student teachers the opportunity to experience the real world of teaching and can greatly strengthen this foundation. (Contains 1 table.)
