Many teachers-in-training and their more experienced colleagues find classroom management challenging. Using what works: Elementary School Classroom Management invites elementary school to look beyond untested teacher strategies. Instead this book presents an evidence-based approach. Equipped with a greater knowledge of scientifically informed classroom management, teachers will learn how and why some things work, while others do not.
The most current knowledge on classroom management is presented in this book in six comprehensive, yet, easily assessable chapters. Numerous evidence-based strategies for supporting classroom management are offered. In addition, interventions that have proven to work are described. Each chapter concludes with recommended readings, course assignments, and suggestions for in-depth discussions.
