This unit of study provides pre-service teachers with skills to implement best practice classroom management in order to create a stable learning environment. We examine preventative strategies to minimise classroom management problems and other strategies to effectively deal with discipline problems. Students are able to increase their knowledge in establishing safe, orderly classroom environments. This UoS focuses on developing the crisis management plans that empower the students and class to work in creative, productive settings free from disrespect, fear, or intimidation. Strategies for dealing with disruptive behaviour and effective classroom management are desired outcomes.
