This study was about effective classroom management skills in physical education at institute of teacher education (ITE). The purpose of this study was to review effective classroom management skills in physical education for student participation at ITE. Besides, this study is implemented to identify how to deal with classroom management strategies with the focus on communication, behavior challenges, and discipline at ITE. It is important to identify how to keep our young students involved in physical education at ITE. It is not only important for their future but for the instructor to have control of such a large class. The research design was quantitative using a set of questionnaire. Then, it was analyzed by using SPSS 24.0. Next, the participants in this study were 112 physical education lecturers from 17 ITEs. All subjects were chosen according to their field of expertise and grade level. Participants agreed to be observed teaching and to also fill out a survey. Based on the findings, most of the lecturers responded that they strongly agree with the positive classroom management techniques and strongly disagree with the negative classroom management techniques at ITE. In conclusion, the study results showed that lecturers who utilized positive classroom management techniques were more likely to solicit cooperation from their students and felt less job stress.
