On one side we believe in faithfully following a classroom management plan. This allows teachers to hold students accountable without yelling, scolding, lecturing, or using any other stressful or hurtful method. On the other side we believe in creating a classroom that students love being part of, that they’re excited to come to every day. This combination of strength and joy holds the key to effective classroom management. Week after week, using simple strategies and techniques, we’ll show you exactly how to use these principles to get your students to want to behave.
