Effective classroom management is consistently identified as one of the most important factors in student learning. Therefore, it is imperative that all teachers develop the ability to effectively manage a classroom. Classroom Management Essentials is a self-guided, interactive, professional development app, which helps teachers learn how to effectively manage a classroom. Classroom Management Essentials capitalizes on lectures, video clips, interactive features and much more to guide you through the process of classroom management and the steps necessary to become an effective classroom manager.
Each teacher who purchases Classroom Management Essentials will receive training from a specialist in the field of classroom management on how to become an effective classroom manager. The primary goal of this educational app is to introduce a practical model for understanding and deconstructing the tasks involved in the process of classroom management and on learning practical, easy to implement strategies that enable teachers to spend more time teaching rather than disciplining!
Some of the specific topics you will learn about include:
* How to develop effective rules and routines
* The role relationships play in one’s classroom management plan
* Techniques for preventing misbehavior
* Strategies for dealing with minor and more serious misbehavior
* Plus much, much more!
What teachers are saying about Classroom Management Essentials:
"I can’t say enough positive things about this app. I am in a district that keeps switching me to different grade levels and I always worry about classroom management. However, one of the best things about this app is that the model and strategies presented make sense no matter what or where you are teaching." - 3rd grade teacher
"Even with years of experience as a teacher, I found this app helpful. Dr. Garrett gave a name to a lot of the things I already do. But this will help me when I mentor future novice teachers and need to explain things about my classroom management approach." - 9th and 10th grade teacher
"Wow! I can’t believe how much I learned from this app. As a beginning teacher, there is so much I didn’t know about classroom management. I think the framework and strategies covered in this app will help me so much." - 5th grade teacher
"I am definitely going to have all my student teachers explore this app because everything that is presented is necessary and helpful. I love the name of the app because that is what this app is... the essentials! Not overdone, just boiled down to the essentials." - student teaching supervisor

Easy to use and learn from!
I just bought this app to help me prepare me for some upcoming teaching interviews I have. I just graduated college this may and thought it would be a great idea to freshen up on some classroom management techniques. The format of this app is very simple and straightforward. I would highly recommend this app not only focuses on specific techniques but also ones that would be helpful at any grade level.
I didn't really get any training in classroom management in my teacher education program so I found this app fantastic! I can't believe how much I learned. Actually, what I really can't believe is how much I didn't know. I am excited to start a new school year in September and start fresh with a strong management plan. This app will give me the tools to do that.
Big help! marbda
I have been supervising student teachers for years and their biggest issue is always classroom management. I plan to require all my student teachers to purchase this app so we can talk about it. I think Dr. Garrett is right on with her approach and her model is so helpful.
