Class Room Management

One of our primary responsibilities as teachers is to help our students learn. It is difficult for learning to take place in chaotic environments.

According to Evertson and Harris (1999), “the meaning of the term classroom management has changed from describing discipline practices and behavioral interventions to serving as a more holistic descriptor of teachers’ actions in orchestrating supportive learning environments and building community” (p. 60)

The importance of the role of the teacher as an agent of change, promoting understanding and tolerance, has never been more obvious than today.

How can an authoritative teacher that is demonstrably in control of the classroom environment, and has a clear agenda and purpose, continue to encourage the individual members of the class to develop their self-determination and independence within reasonable boundaries?
