Lesson Planning – Classroom Mangement

I’m not good at classroom management.  I really don’t enjoy enforcing policies, or calling students out for cell phone usage, talking and eating during class.  When my class is large enough to warrant a teaching assistant I pass this role on to them.  I’m not sure if it is an issue with confidence, or more the fact that I just don’t enjoy feeling like a mother at school.  I came across this article by accident the other day and really like some of the techniques it recommends.  I specifically like the suggestions on page 10, 10 Things to Make the First Day (and the Rest) of the Semester Successful, I can see myself using these on the first day.
