Best Practice in Motivation and Management in the Classroom
This text offers practical information and vicarious practice for both beginning as well as veteran teachers to become more knowledgeable, skilled, and effective in their work. Through study, application of what has been studied, and the analysis and evaluation of the end result of this application, teachers who care to improve can improve. And, teachers who are already successful in their teaching can be even more successful. Effective teachers are active learners themselves. This text therefore provides a specific context and focus for this active learning in the areas of student motivation and classroom management which are considered critical for best practice in teaching in classrooms today. The book reviews appropriate strategies when responding to specific types of student misbehavior and also discusses zero tolerance policies, expulsion, teaching special students, addressing diversity, violence, school uniforms, and drug abuse as related to management and motivation. It is highlighted with supporting case study examples, question and activity sections by chapter, and a helpful glossary. Also provided is an overview of ten popular models for classroom management with the theorists associated with their development. By reading this book, teachers will get their students to achieve at high levels in demonstrating what they have learned through the application of the most important, intertwined areas of motivation and classroom management.
