Many new, as well as, experienced teachers find that classroom management can be the most challenging part of teaching. The purpose of this three-part module is to provide teachers with strategies designed to improve the teaching and learning process in an effort to enhance the learning experience.
Part I focuses on managing behavior. The practice activities in this section are designed to provide ideas and strategies for maintaining order and providing structure in the classroom.
