An educatorâ€™s guide to effective classroom management provides clear and concise discussions of classroom management aspects within a present day South African context. An educatorâ€™s guide to effective classroom management gives educators an opportunity to question and enhance their approach to teaching and to reduce the bureaucracy of their classrooms. It provides valuable knowledge; practical ideas and advice on the development of a personal classroom management plan to suit individual styles of teaching and thus promote successful learning.
