Classroom management

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.
