Managing the Adolescent Classroom

Managing the Adolescent Classroom
Lessons From Outstanding Teachers

Foreword by Thomas O. Erb

May 2004 | 184 pages | Corwin

Uncover the secrets of teachers who are recognized as outstanding classroom managers!

Through fourteen case studies of exemplary teachers, Crawford showcases adolescent classroom management at its best. Teachers can draw from this rich store of individual tips, secrets, and procedures and adapt these management solutions immediately. Along with these variations on classic elements of success, Crawford also provides many new entry points for new and experienced teachers to improve their own management. Reflective chapter questions and discussion prompts make this a productive resource for study groups and mentors as well as classroom teachers.

Managing the Adolescent Classroom demonstrates how to triangulate great management around three essential factors:

  • Physical-- leveraging time, space, and a structured environment
  • Affective--strategies to promote positive personal and interpersonal development
  • Cognitive--use of instructional pace and engagement to motivate behavior and commitment to learning

By successfully managing the physical, social-emotional, and academic dimensions of the classroom environment, teachers can create an essential foundation for a learning community of young adolescents that will promote relationships, belonging, and achievement.
