Classroom Management

Robert Wilkins

Teachers coordinate and supervise the work of a team of people. In this respect they are like managers in business and
industry and must have similar skills. In school, as in industry, work has to be done, tasks are described and assigned, teams of people are organised and supervised, time is allocated and monitored, and an output is generated and controlled for quality. The output of the school is learning and the teacher has the demanding task of orchestrating everything that happens in the classroom to maximise learning.
