A teacher’s ability to manage the classroom strongly influences the quality of teaching and learning that can be accomplished. Among the most pressing concerns for inexperienced teachers is classroom management, a concern of equal importance to the general public in light of behavior problems and breakdowns in discipline that grab newspaper headlines. But classroom management is not just about problems and what to do when things go wrong and chaos erupts. It’s about how to run a classroom so as to elicit the best from even the most courteous group of students. An array of skills is needed to produce such a learning environment. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Classroom Management raises issues and introduces evidence-based, real-world strategies for creating and maintaining well-managed classrooms where learning thrives. Students studying to become teachers will need to develop their own classroom management strategies consistent with their own philosophies of teaching and learning. It is hoped that this work will help open their eyes to the range of issues and the array of skills they might integrate into their unique teaching styles.

'Get on with your work!', 'Stop talking!', 'Pay attention!' Does it sound familiar? Research evidence worldwide shows that managing classroom behaviour continues to cause difficulties for teachers. It is not the acts of violence or defiance that grind down teachers' energy and enthusiasm for their work, but dealing with constant repetitions of minor misbehaviours. The prevalent explanation for disruptive behaviour is 'individual deficit' - blaming and shaming the children for their inappropriate behaviour and teachers for their lack of management skills. This book shows that this attitude ignores recent research and is prohibiting the future. This book helps teachers investigate children's troublesome classroom behaviour through action research, providing them with strategies that will lead to lasting change. A vast range of topics are dicussed from practical examples of good teaching and the role of the classroom, to carrying out your own research and identifying and building on a teacher's strengths.
