Qed 506 e portfolio

  1. 1.  a multi-faceted theory of classroom management based on 4 key concepts  Identifying & addressing mistaken goals of misbehaviour  Being democratic rather than autocratic/ permissive teachers  Using logical consequences rather than punishment  Awareness of the difference between praise and encouragement
  2. 2.  Key Concept 1: Mistaken goals  Attention seeking (more dominant in young children)  Power seeking (behaviours include disobedience, talking back, or overt resistance)  Revenge (behaviours include stealing, kicking, and intentionally hurting others)  Feelings of inadequacy (helplessness or inferiority)
  3. 3.  Key Concept 2: Being democratic VS autocratic or permissive  Treating students as individuals & with respect  Modelling respect at all times  Treating students with dignity, firmness & kindness  Allowing students to help make important class decisions  Using instructional methods that meet individual students’ learning needs & interests
  4. 4.  Key Concept 3: Logical consequences VS punishment  Simple, specific classroom rules must first exist, after which a sequence of logical consequences can be laid down  Use punishment ONLY when all logical consequences have been exhausted  Possibility of students devising their OWN classroom rules & logical consequences
  5. 5.  Key Concept 4: Praise VS encouragement  More encouragement to boost confidence & self esteem  Encouragement keeps students on task & minimizes disruption  Less praise to reduce students’ dependency on it  Praise may have a discouraging effect in the long run: a decrease in the amt of praise may lead to a decrease in self-worth
  6. 6.  Advantages  Promotes respect & communication among teachers & students  Students take responsibility for their own actions  Concept of logical consequences when used consistently, provide a fair & basic element  Complements good teaching (caring classroom community, student-centered instructions, student- teacher collaboration)  Potential for contributing to the safe schools movt.
  7. 7.  Disadvantages  Difficulty at times in identifying & understanding reasons for misbehaviour  Inability to always respond properly to misbehaviour and provide logical consequences  Inappropriate for tackling more serious problems  Teachers who are inherently autocratic or permissive might have difficulty adopting democratic perspectives
