Think of classroom management as your personal toolkit of policies, actions, and words, which you use to keep your classroom functioning smoothly and your students working safely and efficiently. But to manage efficiently, you'll need to carefully study the basic concepts introduced in this chapter. Think of each concept as a tool in your classroom-management toolkit — a saw for cutting through confusion or a hammer for building comprehension and so on. As a teacher, you're only as good as your tools, so it pays to become familiar with them.
