Classroom Management Questions and Answers
The entire video can be seen here:
In 2008, I surveyed my teacher subscribers and asked them what they wanted to know before the school year starts.
Hundreds of teachers replied.
We took a sampling of their questions and answered them.
The presentation with teachers took place just before school started in August 2008. The question asked was: “What is your biggest challenge in teaching.”
For the majority of the questions, the answers have stood the test of time.
Questions were submitted by teachers on the following categories:
