Early ADHD Diagnosis? Don’t Forget About Learning Issues
For beginning teachers, or for teachers like myself returning to
teaching, the most difficult thing to master is classroom management. I
had to relearn what ten years of hard instruction had taught me: Good
classroom management is more than just being strict or authoritarian,
and it is more than simply being organized. If I want to have my
classroom run smoothly as a well-oiled learning machine, I have to set
up a structured learning environment in which certain behaviors are
promoted and others are discouraged.
