How important is Classroom management and is this something that can be automated?
Angelo, T.A. & Cross, E.P., Excerpt from Classroom Assessment Techniques, A Handbook for College Teachers, 2nd Ed. University of Hawaii
These authors assert that faculty should become more systematic and sensitive observers of learning, using their classrooms as laboratories for the study of learning.
The purpose of this investigation was to explore the Patterson and Reid (1970) reciprocal/coercive interaction hypothesis as related to the classroom social interactions between teachers and students identified with severe behavior disorders. Additionally, four classroom behavior management strategies are identified as potential setting events for either coercive or positive reciprocal interactions between teachers and students.
