Abstract

In a high school classroom setting, classroom management is essential to running a productive classroom, as learning cannot increase if students are not on task. If there are behavior issues within the classroom it can both affect the teacher’s teaching as well as other students’ learning (Cameron, Connor, Morrison, & Jewkes, 2008). The efforts of managing a classroom is a process loaded with trial and error, and establishing classroom norms that result in routine behaviors and set rules. Understanding behaviorism and what particular classroom management strategies are essential to running an effective classroom so as to ensure students are utilizing class time to its highest educational potential. This research focuses on how the incorporation of classroom management strategies focused on behaviorism affects the productivity of students in the classroom, since the behavior of students in the classroom affects student learning. The data collected in the field consists of classroom video clips, field notes, and lesson plans.
