When classroom management is raised, i have always known how fortunate I was to be teaching university engineering students: qualified students choosing to take my classes. My classroom management was about pedagogy and materials that provide the environment and encouragement for my students to learn effectively - a joy to do for the 30 years prior to retirement. In conversations with many teachers as I expand my outreach to K-12 following retirement, I realize even more how fortunate I was to be able to ignore the BEHAVIORAL MANAGEMENT aspect of classroom management. I strongly believe this aspect to be the largest detriment to effective learning in all too many classrooms AND most likely the cause of teacher burnout in all too many instances. I'd really like to hear about BH. For so many classrooms, think how just improving BH will improve learning. May I suggest this to be a major difference when comparing countries?
