The aim of this study is to determine classroom management beliefs of preservice physics teachers. Besides, it is also aimed to examine the effects of gender and classroom management lessons on those beliefs. For this purpose adapted version of Attitudes and Beliefs on Classroom Control-Revised Inventory and Demographic Variables Questionnaire were administered to 109 preservice physics teachers. The results of this study indicated that preservice physics teachers' attitudes and beliefs regarding classroom management are interventionist on the instructional management-and non-interventionist on the people management subscale. Moreover the effects of gender and classroom management lessons on classroom management beliefs were discussed in this research. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
