As educators we have all faced a situation where we have had to use classroom management to redirect the actions of a misbehaving student. But what works when it comes to discipline and classroom management? What does the research say about best practices?
This American life Brings up some great questions regarding student discipline in the podcast “Is this working?” You can find the full episode on their website here: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/538/is-this-working
A simple Google search about research on classroom management will provide loads of information and articles. One of my favorite researched based strategies is the STOP and THINK social skills program described by project ACHIEVE.
