Pedagogy, Models of Teaching and Classroom Management
Pedagogies are different ways of conceptualising teaching, and entail both instructional and management activity. We have already seen the close relationships between the managerial and instructional aspects of teaching, and thus an analysis of pedagogies provides further insights into classroom management. Pedagogies view learning and the role of teaching in various ways, which in classroom management terms implies different degrees of concern with instructional and managerial classroom discourses, in the same way that views of formal education, such as transformation or ‘lifelong learning’, are realised by specific practices. Pedagogies also imply different management concerns in terms of order, opportunity and care.
