Two fourth grade classes are learning about the California Gold Rush and the migration that ensued. In one class, the teacher has difficulty maintaining students’ interest, and there is much chatter and note passing. In the other class, students are out of their seats, actively engaged, and retaining information (as witnessed on test scores)

Lesson management refers to the planning and consideration that goes into the creation of an activity. It is an important aspect of maintaining management. The more children are engaged and interested in a lesson, the less likely they are to misbehave. A good lesson is comprised of five parts: clear objectives, teacher clarity, withitness/ overlapping, lesson momentum, lesson smoothness (including connected discourse and creative repetition), and maintaining group focus. (These will be discussed in greater detail below.) .
