Classroom Management in Teacher Education Programs


Part of the Palgrave Studies in Urban Education book series (PSUE)

About this book


This book investigates the impact of integrating culturally relevant and pedagogically dynamic classroom management strategies into the curriculum of an urban secondary education pre-service methods course. The book begins by framing the problem of integrating classroom management into the lives of those learning to teach impact. It then examines multiple case studies of students from the study’s control cohort who did not have classroom management coursework in their methods course.  After breaking down the challenges encountered by the control students, the book offers DCMA as a framework from which teacher educators might create an integrative methods course. The book then analyzes students from the study’s experimental cohort and how they benefited from such an integrative course throughout their teacher preparation and into their first year of teaching.
