Classroom Managment

  1. 1. Classroom Management Heather Kimmel February, 2009
  2. 2. Classroom Management: <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Philosophy of Classroom Management <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Effective classroom management is essential to both creating a positive learning environment and fostering student achievement </li></ul>

  10. 10. Starting Class <ul><li>Students should be in their seats working on the warm up when the bell rings </li></ul><ul><li>I take attendance and check homework while students are working </li></ul>
  11. 11. Speaking in Class <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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.” </li></ul><ul><li>Students are smart, they quickly learn when I expect them to raise their hands and when they can shout out. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Bathroom Breaks <ul><li>Students will be given 2 bathroom breaks per quarter </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Pencil Sharpening and Materials <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Binders <ul><li>Organization is key to success.
