Classroom management, as applied to teaching, involves everything that a teacher must do to carry out his/her teaching objectives.  It includes preparation of plans and materials, structuring of activities into time blocks, direct teaching of skills and subject matter, grouping   of  pupils to provide for the most efficient use of teacher and pupil time, plans for transition periods--changing from one activity to another or from one place to another--pupil involvement and motivation, and adequate control of pupil behavior.

Losing control can happen in several different ways. The most common would be where the class is distracted. This could be from a situation outside the classroom such as noisy conversation in the hall, or from an event elsewhere that students find out about, such as a rumor of the football coach getting fired.

4. Discuss very negative behaviors in private. During break or after class firmly request a change in behavior of those students who are disruptive. At our university it is very easy for professors to drop disruptive students from class, so one warning is usually enough.
5. Use humor. One of my favorite techniques is to stop the lecture, put on a mysterious expression, and look directly at the...
