Classroom management is important for creating the conditions for learning. Effective classroom management minimises and addresses all levels of disengagement and disruptive behaviours.

Effective classroom management is as applicable to EAL/D learners as to their English-speaking peers. A description of effective classroom management with EAL/D learners is detailed in EAL/D Elaborations of the Australian Professional Standards. Classroom and school environments that are culturally inclusive and recognise the knowledge and culture of students from diverse backgrounds will support engagement and positive behaviour in classes with EAL/D students.
