Effective Classroom Practice

The goal of effective classroom management is not creating “perfect” children, but providing the perfect environment for enhancing their growth, using research-based strategies that guide students toward increasingly responsible and motivated behavior.

~ Sprick, Knight, Reinke & McKale, 2006
