Two Urban Elementary Science Classrooms: The Interplay between Student Interactions and Classroom Management Practices
Jeanpierre, Bobby J.
Education, v124 n4 p664 Sum 2004
The purpose of this article is to present findings from a case study of two urban elementary teachers' classroom management practices and students' interactions during science instruction. The two teachers had antithetical (i.e., one intrinsic, the other authoritarian) classroom management styles, yet substantial negative student classroom interactions occurred in both classrooms. The article posits that students' classroom interactions were influenced by the lack of quality science instruction they experienced. The quality of instruction urban elementary students experience matters, and is integral to the classroom interactions that occur between student and teacher.
