Abstract [en]

This paper describes the teaching styles inside and outside of the classroom of four classroom managers, with a focus on their pedagogical temperament, a general attitude toward legislation and the other actors at the school. Classroom management consists of integrating skills which focus on leadership qualities that support all students' wellbeing, learning, and development (Kounin, 1970; Nordenbo, et al., 2008). Efficient classroom management is the result of taking conscious, long-term preventative measures and being patient (Freiberg & Lamb, 2009; Hamre, et al, 2013; Wubbels et al. 2015; Mitchell, Kensler & Tschannen-Moran, 2018). I followed four teachers who taught in preschool classes, leisure time centres, as well as grades one and two, doing yo-yo fieldwork (Wolff, 2002) from autumn 2018 until autumn 2019. During this period of time I observed each teacher inside and outside their classrooms, talked with them during the school day, and conducted formal interviews with them. The findings are presented as four portraits (Van Maanen, 1988) that on the one hand, show how all four teachers put their students' best interest first, while also showing that they take slightly different paths to reach the same goal. It seems relevant to focus on how efficient classroom managers plan, organize, and conduct their teaching in an effort to understand more about Nordic students' school results and wellbeing.
