Classroom Management

Hue Ming-tak

Hong Kong University Press

In this chapter, it is suggested that effective classroom management can be achieved through collegial collaboration, which can be promoted at two levels: school-wide and between individuals. At the school-wide level, it can be established by adopting a whole-school approach to behaviour management in which the school takes the initiative to build up an organizational structure where colleagues are encouraged to collaborate with others. It aims at engaging all school members to work together as a team on the classroom issues with which they are concerned, and so to develop common aims, beliefs, practices and action plans in promoting positive behaviour management. At the individual level, the collaboration is initiated "bottom up" by the colleagues themselves rather than in a "top down" fashion. The social networks of collaborating colleagues may vary in terms of formality and flexibility depending on the patterns of interpersonal relationships among them.
