  • 1. Classroom Management Heather Kimmel February, 2009
  • 2. Classroom Management:
    • Refers to the process of setting up and maintaining a positive learning environment in the classroom. It includes providing structured class time, providing clear expectations, and maintaining discipline.
  • 3. Philosophy of Classroom Management
    • Classroom management should be proactive . When students’ time is structured, when they have positive activities to engage in, and when expectations are clear, reactive measures become less necessary.
    • Although classroom management should be proactive, reactive measures should not be abandoned. It is important to follow through with rules and consequences which provide structure to both the class as a whole and the students as individuals.
    • Effective classroom management is essential to both creating a positive learning environment and fostering student achievement
  • 4. Positive Learning Environment
    • In order to effectively manage a class the teacher must create and maintain a positive learning environment
    • A positive learning environment is one in which all students feel comfortable participating
    • Lessons must be structured so that the students are set up to succeed, but there must also be room for failure and learning from mistakes
    • A positive learning environment provides a place for intellectual and social and emotional growth

  • 10. Starting Class
    • Students should be in their seats working on the warm up when the bell rings
    • I take attendance and check homework while students are working
  • 11. Speaking in Class
    • Most of the time students know they must raise their hand and be called on to speak. I frequently remind students of this by saying “hands” after a question and raising my own hand.
    • Students may shout out their answers when I specifically say the word “class” at the end of a question, or if I say any one can “shout out.”
    • Students are smart, they quickly learn when I expect them to raise their hands and when they can shout out.
  • 12. Bathroom Breaks
    • Students will be given 2 bathroom breaks per quarter
    • Each term I hang up papers with the students passes on them. Before a students can take the hall pass to use use the restroom or get a drink the must first tare one of their passes from the sheet and place it in my hand.
  • 13. Pencil Sharpening and Materials
    • High school students should be mature enough to quietly prepare themselves for class before the bell rings. If they fail to do so, it counts as their warning.
    • I keep sharpeners and other materials on the back table that students can help themselves to as long as there is only one person at the table at time.
  • 14. Binders
    • Organization is key to success. Binders must be kept and will be graded
    • Binders must be divided into five sections
      • Warm-ups
      • Notes
      • Classwork/Homework
      • Tests and Quizzes

  • 15. Turning in Homework
    • When told:
      • Students pass their assignments forward to the first person in their row
      • The students in the first row passes the papers to the left
      • The student in the left hand corner of the room winds up with all of the papers
      • I collect the papers from this student
    • There is a red box in the room where students can turn in late work for partial credit
  • 16. The End (you may now applaud)
