Teachers can promote student learning and positive behaviour by using classroom management approaches that are consistent, inclusive and supportive, such as:
- explicitly teaching expected behaviour and social-emotional competence
- acknowledging appropriate behaviours in multiple ways
- using a continuum of strategies to respond to inappropriate behaviour
- using data to monitor and adjust strategies.
The Classroom management - Creating and maintaining positive learning environments document defines classroom management and provides a brief overview of classroom management research. It describes characteristics of effective classroom management strategies.
