The subject of classroom management can arguably be one of the most important aspects of an individual’s teaching career. When looking at my field of study, physical education, it can have a positive impact on student learning or be detrimental to the lesson at hand. All the planning and preparation ahead of time on subject matter can mean nothing if good classroom management is not in place. Konti (2011) maintains, “Class management is one of the most significant aspects of teaching because of the reason that teaching could be more effective when a proper class management is applied. It does not matter how excellent a teaching is set, it is not possible to be successful unless a class is managed accurately. As a result class management should be regarded as the basic ingredient at making the teaching successful” (pg. 37).

This action research project examined studies on what strategies for classroom management are the most effective and how these can be differentiated for best practices in the physical education environment. This action research project dives into a literature review, looks into the data, and analyzes the data to determine best practices
