This study examined classroom management and teachers' effectiveness. Classroom management embodies the arrangement of teachers and students, seats, adequate and proper walkways in the classroom, and adequate and proper positioning of other classroom furniture to facilitate an effective teaching-learning atmosphere. All these enhance teachers' instructional effectiveness in the educational system. The study therefore critically examined the concepts of classroom, classroom structure, classroom management, classroom procedure, steps to follow in teaching procedure, classroom reinforcement, and ways of making classroom reinforcement work in schools. Also ex-rayed are teachers' instructional effectiveness, classroom instructional techniques, classroom interaction, techniques for effective classroom management, and teachers' effectiveness. The study concluded that it is important that the classroom be comfortable, conducive, and devoid of disciplinary problems. Therefore, the effective management of the classroom should be a joint responsibility of the learner, teacher, government, and other stakeholders in education. It is only by doing so that teachers' instructional effectiveness can be achieved.
