Testing his theories over twenty years of work, he analyzed thousands of hours of taps of classes on a variety of grade levels and in a variety of neighborhoods and communities. Kounin found that teachers who use effective instructional management keep their students focused on learning tasks and minimize behavior problems. He is the author of the widely respected and used book named Discipline and Group Management in Classrooms (1970). What is Instructional Management? Instructional Management Philosophy and the Key concepts Kounin believed that teachers affect students' behaviors positively and negatively. Being an effective classroom manager means having clear transitions between activities, knowing what is going on in the classroom at all times, and continuously maintaining instructional momentum. Teachers need to focus on and improve their own performance. Instructional Management is teacher-centered and prevention-based. Three key concepts addresses in his theories is teacher behavior, movement management, and group focus. They counteracts mischief by keeping people productively busy.

Disadvantages Teachers following Kounin's Instructional Management have three roles: instructor, manager, and person.
