Smart Classroom Management
This is my absolute favorite blog on classroom management. It is written by Michael Linsin, author of the award-winning book Dream Class: How To Transform Any Group Of Students Into The Class You’ve Always Wanted. Linsin regularly posts simple and effective classroom management techniques and strategies, laid out in a very easy-to-digest format. These tips address not just what to do, but also when to do it, why you should do it this way and not that, and also how they work. These strategies are applicable to every level of instruction, and I have had great success incorporating these ideas into my own classrooms. (K)
