  • If you don’t plan, the student will plan for you!!
  •  Why is having control of the class so important in order to get your message delivered effectively?  What are some components of effective classroom management?
  •  Classroom management is ways of organizing the resources, pupils and helpers so that teaching and learning can proceed in an efficient and safe manner.
  • The biggest deterrent to classroom management issues is proactive, effective lessons. The more you plan, the more effective the lesson and delivery…the less problems with discipline.
  •  Classroom management refers to the ways in which student behaviour, movement and interaction during a lesson are organized and controlled by the teacher.Richards (1990, 10) .
  • It can be defined as the teacher’s ability to cooperatively manage time, space, resources and student roles and student behaviours to provide a climate that encourages earning (Alberto&Troutman,1986)
  •  Classroom Management involves establishing procedures, having rules, and reducing discipline problems.

  •   Make a good first impression. Come in with enthusiasm and show you are excited to be there.
  •  Minimize the power differential in everyday communication.  Sitting behind a desk or standing behind a podium can send the message that you want to create some distance between yourself and the students.  Get down to their level when working with them.
  •  Address problem behavior directly and immediately.  Addressing a problem early lessens the chance that it will expand.
  •  Know the power of proximity  You can accomplish more through your body language than through your voice.  Put your body next to problems.  Put your body in-between students who are disruptive.  Know how to work one-on-one with students while not turning your back on the rest of the class.
  • Think Prevention   Consider how you can manage the learning process to prevent undesirable behaviors (i.e. classroom set-up, opportunities for students to interact, active involvement, clear communication of expectations, structuring for success).
  •  Model behaviors you expect from the students: mutual respect, active listening, interest in learning, subject enthusiasm, open mindedness, positive attitude.
  •  A proactive teacher can motivate their student in learning because: They feel comfortable They feel safe They trust their teacher.
  •  A good teacher is someone who wants to know about their students.  Be kind to their students.  Students will feel appreciated if their teacher are interested in them.
