Thoughts About Classroom Management

What sorts of advice are you getting for managing your students? Interested in what other people are thinking about this? Edutopia has set up a New Teacher Academy and the first lesson is on this especially challenging issue for all teachers. We are happy to share this article with you from Edutopia. Lisa Michelle Dabbs, the facilitator of the New Teacher Connections group at Edutopia writes, "Classroom management is a term used by teachers and educators to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite potentially challenging or disruptive student behavior. The term also implies the prevention of this kind of disruptive behavior. Many teachers find that classroom management is possibly the most difficult aspect of teaching; indeed, experiencing problems in this area causes some to leave teaching altogether. It can be even more challenging when you're a new teacher!"

This probably resonates for many of you. Read on and feel free to post any comments and thoughts.
