Table of Contents

Module 16: Exhibiting “Withitness”

“Withitness” is a term coined by researcher Jacob Kounin (1970), who found that the most effective managers regularly monitor their classrooms and address even the possibility of misbehavior immediately. Withitness has been described in the following way:

Effective managers monitored their classroom regularly. They positioned themselves so that they could see all students and they continuously scanned the room to keep track of what was going on, no matter what else they were doing at the time. (Good & Brophy, 2003, p. 112)

Recommendations for Classroom Practice

Four behaviors constitute withitness:

  • Occupying the entire room
  • Noticing potential problems
  • Using a series of graduated actions
  • Forecasting problems

Occupying the Entire Room
