As classroom management is ranked by schools as one of the weakest areas of HKIEd student teachers’ performances in their block teaching practice in schools, this study aims to provide implications on enhancing the curriculum planning and pedagogical practice of the course titled “Promoting Positive Classroom Environments” by drawing on the insights from the practices of 3-4 outstanding teachers in Hong Kong. Through an in-depth qualitative study, the project will investigate the effective classroom management strategies these outstanding teachers use, the process of their strategy formation and the factors shaping the process. At the end of the study, cases of effective classroom management by these teachers will be written up or videotaped and edited to enrich the teaching recourses of the course. Recommendations on applying the experience of these outstanding teachers will be made in the hope of better connecting the pre-service training with the in-service teachers’ practice.
