A system of classroom management has to deal with those misbehaviours. As a teacher, we have to deal with those misbehaviours over which we have some control. Some misbehaviours require a team response -- other teachers, school administration, parents, social workers etc.
The teachers who believe all students should behave will be continually ____.
The result is they live on the edge of anger, they take things personally, and they are more reactive.
The teachers who believe that no matter how well prepared they are etc., that all students will misbehave is less likely to get caught emotionally because they are less likely to take things personally
Every thing we do or say; or don’t do or say … causes students to bond with us or against us; if they bond with us, it is difficult for a student to collect allies; if they bond against us, the difficult student finds it easier to find allies.
We all exist on a continuum between the best teacher ever and the worst teacher ever. If our mean classroom score is 75 or higher, what we attempt, usually works. If it slides down to say 32, then most things will not work.
