Document Number: 9820Making Preschool More Productive: How Classroom Management Training Can Help Teachers - This evaluation of Foundations for Learning found that teachers who were randomly assigned to participate in the program improved the emotional climate of their classrooms and were better able to manage children'ís behavioral challenges. These teachers were also able to increase the amount of instruction time, and their students had fewer conflicts with adults or peers and were more engaged. The researchers also found that the impact on teacher practice persisted into the following year, after the intervention ceased. In contrast, however, the study did not find any lasting impact on children's behaviors during the kindergarten year. (MDRC, November 2010)...
