  7. 7. “Teacher - Student relationships” is the third aspect of effective classroom management.
  8. 8. “If a teacher has a good relationship with students, then students will more readily accept the rules and procedures and the disciplinary actions that follow their violations.”
  9. 9. +AGREE or DISAGREE- • The causes of many classroom behaviors labeled and punished as rule infractions are, in fact, problems of students and teachers relating to one another interpersonally. • High dominance by a teacher in the classroom is more effective than high submission. • Teachers appear to decline in cooperative behavior as they reach 6 to 10 years of service. • The most effective classroom managers tend to employ different strategies with different types of students.
  10. 10. “The causes of many classroom behaviors labeled and punished as rule infractions are, in fact, problems of students and teachers relating to one another interpersonally.” • (Sheets & Gay, 1996) • Plax & Kearney in 1990 also postulated that this breakdown occurs because many teachers position themselves in a “we-they” relationship with students.
  11. 11. “High dominance by a teacher in the classroom is more effective than high submission.” • Theo Wubbles & et al., (multiple from 1990 to 1991) • High dominance is characterized by clarity of purpose and strong guidance. However, it also can be characterized by lack of attentiveness to and concern for students.

  16. 16. “The most effective classroom managers tend to employ different strategies with different types of students.” • (Brophy, 1999 and Brophy & McCaslin, 1992) • Specifically, effective managers made distinctions abut the most appropriate strategies to use with individual students based on the unique needs of those students.
  17. 17. MANAGEMENT TYPES
  18. 18. Rules/ Rewards- Punishments • Teachers articulate rules and procedures and present them to students. • Acting accordance with rules results in positive consequences; not acting in accordance results in negative consequences.
  19. 19. Relationship- listening • Characterized by little or no emphasis on disciplinary issues per se. • Rather, the emphasis is on attending to student concerns.
  20. 20. Confronting/ Contracting • Characterized by direct attention to disciplinary problems but not in an inflexible way. • Executes negative consequences but but demonstrates a concern for student needs and preferences.
