Abstract

This study analyzed discussion of 21 teacher candidates in an online course on classroom management to examine development of knowledge and skills in classroom management strategies. Henri's (1992) framework for content analysis of computer-mediated communication was used to analyze candidate's online postings. This framework categorizes messages using five dimensions: participative, interactive, social, cognitive, and metacognitive. Findings indicate that discussing personal experiences with colleagues in similar circumstances about classroom management issues prompted reflection on why or why not pedagogical practice related to classroom management was effective while responses to readings promoted reflection on the range of approaches to classroom management and helped candidates prioritize their concerns and develop understanding of the complexities of classroom management.
