A social history of the Muncie Public Library, 1827-1904 : an honors thesis (HON[RS] 499)
Classroom management is one of the most difficult aspects of teaching. According to the literature, music educators can expect to have classroom management challenges that general educators do not have. Typically, a pre-service music teacher will experience the challenges of classroom management for the first time during student teaching. In order to help prepare for these challenges, this paper summarizes the current resources on classroom management for music educators. This literature review discusses the themes that reoccur in the body of literature including preventing undesirable behavior, developing intervention strategies, creating a curriculum with clear expectations, and building a student-centered classroom.
