Teachersneed to establish understandable classroom routines, communications,and instructions and create learning environment where positiveinteractions can take place to enhance student personal and academicsuccess.

Indeed,this model of class management is vital in facilitating effectivelearning in classes it is through effective class management thatstudents’ discipline, responsibility and personal, academicmanagement are enhanced. The author explains the rationale ofeffective classroom management through teachers’ authority, workingwith parents, students rights and through behavior modifications.Teachers need to consider aspects of classroom management such asstudents’ behavior and the classroom environment before selectingthe right approach to enhance classroom management.

Themodel elaborated by the author on effective classroom management iseffective in developing students’ personal academic organization.In addition, the model is all inclusive, and this is important inrealizing effective student management. The entire school communityhas a great role in facilitating effective classroom management. Themodel is effective in all levels of learning especially in uppergrade and high schools. In my experience, effective classroommanagement is achieved when effective routines, rules and proceduresare followed in classes. Effective classroom management is realizedwhen students are disciplined, responsible and understand their rolein class.
