9 Strategies for Effective Classroom Management (video collection)
Creating a positive classroom culture can be a challenge, but it’s a crucial element in making a class run smoothly. In the video “New Teacher Survival: Classroom Management” featured below, Dr. Jackie Ancess of Columbia University says you want a classroom to be an “orderly and safe space so that the kids can learn what you want them to learn.”

Genius Hour: Passion-Based Learning #liveclass20 #webinar
Genius Hour is a precious time, loved by all my students.
It is when they are allowed to develop their own inquiry question about whatever it is that they want to explore,“ so says Gallit Zvi (@gallit_z), one of our presenters. Joining Gallit will be Denise Krebs (@mrsdkrebs), Hugh McDonald (@hughtheteacher), and Joy Kirr (@joykirr), who are all middle school educators.
They will share the basic philosophy of Genius Hour or 20% Time, why you and your students should do it, some examples of Genius Hour projects, how this kind of learning informs all we do in the classroom, and scaling up Genius Hour to change the world and become part of the Choose2Matter and Quest2Matter movements.

What is Genius Hour?
http://www.gallitzvi.com/2/post/2012/06/what-is-genius-hour.html
What is Genius Hour?
Genius Hour is a precious time, loved by all my students. It is when they are allowed to develop their own inquiry question about whatever it is that they want to explore. They are then given about 3 one hour Genius Hour sessions and then they are usually ready to present their learning to the class.
Genius Hour is an amazing time. All the kids are excited and this creates a buzz in the air! Some students are huddled around a laptop doing research on countries they are interested in, others are creating websites, PowerPoints and slideshows on an area of interest, and some are out in the hallway filming movies. Some aren't using technology at all, but rather are building and creating things with their hands. But no matter what they are working on, the common thread is that it is something they are interested in and/or passionate about.

ClassDojo
http://www.classdojo.com
ClassDojo is an classroom tool that helps teachers manage behavior and boost engagement in class really quickly and easily. ClassDojo enables teachers to recognize specific behaviors and accomplishments in real-time, with just one click of a smartphone or laptop button.
ClassDojo works by setting up real-time feedback loops in the classroom, to recognize and reinforce specific, desirable behaviors, values and accomplishments. You can do this with just one click, and have real-time visual notifications appear on your smartboard, laptop or projector. All recognition is logged automatically, and student behavior records are automatically created and updated so you don't have to do any other data entry (unless you want to, of course!). ClassDojo automatically generates analytics, shareable character report cards and insight into your classroom that has never before been available.
ClassDojo can run on an interactive whiteboard, a computer connected to a projector, or even just a smartphone, tablet or iPod touch! The only thing you really need is some kind of computer device in the classroom (just one, for the teacher, is enough) and an internet connection.

Classroom Management Plan
http://www.geom.uiuc.edu/~dwiggins/plan.html
Classroom Management Plan
The purpose of this paper is to present a classroom management plan based on discipline models presented in C.W. Charles book, Building Classroom Discipline. The paper is divided into two parts, which are in turn subdivided by management principles. The first part covers preventive discipline, while the second covers supportive and corrective discipline.
It is hoped that such a plan, if implemented, would lead to all students become more respectful of others, more responsible for their education, and more effective in their practice of self-control.
