     Classroom Management

    "Classroom Management" is a term commonly used in schools; it refers to the procedures, strategies and instructional techniques that are effective in managing student behavior and learning activities. Creating an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning can be very effective. This is a way for new teachers and veterans to find new ways of dealing with classroom situations that may be challenging for individual students or an entire class. Take a chance...because ineffective management in the classroom often creates chaos!
