If we are truly honest, a great deal of our time is spent on classroom management.
I recently went into a classroom to do a faculty evaluation. I usually try to blend in and act like a student. I scribble a few notes and then leave early.
After the class, I meet with the faculty.
This particular faculty member was really good. But the one thing I had to say was,
“You need to learn how to better manage your classroom. If you fix that, the rest will fall into place.”
And then I thought, that the one thing any of us need to master is classroom management.
How do we do that?
