Effective management is one of the four domains of the Responsive Classroom approach. An effectively managed classroom is a calm and orderly learning environment that promotes autonomy, responsibility, and high engagement in learning.

Teachers effectively manage classrooms when they establish and reinforce clear procedures and routines; organize the classroom for safety and autonomy; establish a leadership style that is assertive, authoritative, and approachable; and arrange the classroom environment for maximum learning.

Associated practices include Interactive Modeling, classroom organization, Guided Discovery, use of signals, visual cues, and teacher language
