(A Study of Rimi College, Kaduna)

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    Background of the Study

Classroom Management is about creation of positive learning environments. But the concept of positive learning environment is both broad and vague.

Despite educator’s concerns with the nature of classroom learning environments, few recent studies have investigated either teachers’ knowledge or practices of classroom management in positive learning environments.
