Element 9 - Classroom Management

Why is this important?

It is hard to learn in a chaotic environment! The purpose of classroom management is to provide a learning environment that is orderly, safe and predictable with routines and protocols that allow students to make optimal use of the classroom and increase ownership. Research shows that students learn, think and collaborate best when their stress levels are low, and they have the tools, resources and space that they need.  Positive relationships with students and clear expectations for behavior are also critical, as is a learning culture that promotes a growth mindset. Classroom management is the art and science of carefully developing and consistently maintaining all of the above.
