  4. 4. Is Teaching an Art or a Science? * Teaching is both an Art and a Science. * The art comes from the teacher’s personality, experience, and talents. * The science comes from knowledge of child development and the structure of the curriculum.

  15. 15. Good classroom management has three basic and necessary components: Rules and Procedures  Consequences  Relationships 
  16. 16. Teaching Classroom Rules Maintaining discipline in the classroom is the key to a healthy atmosphere. Laying down rules is easy, but motivating responsible behaviour is tough.
  17. 17. - Classroom rules should be set cooperatively. - Establish a few general rules of classroom conduct. - Rules need to be established as a result of a meaningful classroom discussion. - It’s an invitation for students to describe the class they would like to be part of and make suggestions for rules.
  18. 18. Students know you respect and care for them when they are consulted and involved in decision making. The discussion is meaningful and relevant.
  19. 19. Consequences When students break the rules, they must know ahead of time that there are consequences. In society, we know that if we choose to break the law, we had better be prepared to go to court and perhaps do some jail time!
  20. 20. Relationships We should consider the following: how relationships are developed and maintained • the importance of establishing positive relationships with all students • how to promote positive relationships between students
  21. 21. Potential barriers to establishing positive relationships • Large numbers of children with whom the teacher needs to develop relationships • Lack of time to spend with individuals • We find it easier to develop positive relationships with some.
  22. 22. Do SOMETHING! If it works, do more; If it doesn’t, try something else.
  23. 23. Never treat a child in a way you wouldn’t treat an adult. Try to see things through the child’s eyes.
  24. 24. Without the foundation of a good relationship, students commonly resist rules and procedures along with the consequent disciplinary action.
  25. 25. Keys to Effective Classroom Management  Quality Relationship – Knowing and Understanding your students.  Empathy  Leaving the ego at the door.
  26. 26. Role Plays
  27. 27. Student Types (Based on Behaviour / Attitude)  Indifferent  Sophisticated  Evaluative  Credent
  28. 28. Good teaching is like gardening. The most important part of the activity is preparation of the soil so that plants can grow. The rest is about providing daily nutrients (lessons) and removing the weeds (incorrect information or behavior).
  29. 29. Never forget the power of one person to make a difference in the life of a child. Believe it!
