What's classroom management all about? Classroom management plays a significant role in effective teaching and ultimate achievement of learners. It occurs at two levels--what can be seen in the classroom during actual contact with learners, and what goes on "behind-the-scenes" outside of the classroom.

Jazz was made for the brain. It was about detachment, bemusement, . But rock and roll came straight for the heart and the groin. It was about primal feelings and desires.

Every time history has been renewed—by the great French social and cultural historians of the Annales school, by the British social historians of the 1960s and later, by historians of slavery and of women, of colonialism and of war—the renewal has come in new ways of doing research and writing about it. Historians call this continuous process revisionism, and we see it as a good thing: a continuing revelation of new facets of past human life and experience.
