It's what every educator wants and can have: a classroom that is respectful, active, collaborative, and growth-oriented. We believe that good classroom management skills aren't magic or a lucky gift given to a chosen few. Management in the Active Classroom provides clear, straightforward guidance to help all teachers learn, practice, and master techniques and protocols that build self-discipline, responsibility, engagement, and leadership skills in their students.
Management in the Active Classroom is filled with proven, practical strategies harvested from successful schools across the United States. Strategies are described in concrete language, illustrated through classroom examples, and illuminated by companion videos. This guide will equip teachers, whether veterans or brand-new, to join inspired, collaborative learning with a calm and thoughtful classroom culture.
Key features of Management in the Active Classroom include:
Twenty-three individual classroom management practices related to: teacher presence; norms; routines; communication; group work; and deeper support for challenging behaviors
Scenarios for discussion with colleagues for each classroom management practice
Common challenges and possible solutions for each classroom management practice
Forty-three protocols and strategies to build engagement, collaboration, and responsibility
“Finally, a coherent collection of strategies that positions classroom management in service of student learning...It should be a core text for every teacher.”
