Classroom Management and Discipline

Evidence Review:
Classroom management is one of the most powerful factors in affecting student outcomes.  Classroom management refers to the way a teacher organizes and manages variables of the curriculum, time, space, and interactions with students.

Effective classroom management and discipline procedures include the following:

  • the teaching of classroom rules and procedures;
  • the teaching of social and emotional skills;
  • acknowledgement of appropriate behavior and desired social skills;
  • differential attention and response to inappropriate behaviors in a positive way;
  • the utilization of a variety of instructional modes;
  • the maintenance of well-organized student learning materials;
  • effective time management; and
  • the promotion of emotional, behavioral, and cognitive engagement and re-engagement of all students.
