Importance of Classroom Management

  1. 1. Trainers Methodology Plus Facilitate Learning Sessions Date Developed: September 2012 Document No: Issued by: Page 1 of 6Developed by: BPAP Revision # Information Sheet Importance of Classroom Management Learning Objectives: After reading this Information Sheet, you should be able to describe the importance of Classroom management. One of the most important and difficult roles that a trainer plays in a classroom is that of a classroom manager. A well managed classroom offers a conducive environment for effective teaching and learning to take place. Therefore, classroom management is not simply restricted to the management and discipline of students, but includes ensuring that stressful and non-educational situations are avoided and students learn topics and subjects effectively. It is critical to understand and appreciate the effort exerted by a trainer to create a well-managed classroom. Why is Classroom management Important?  To optimize student learning and achievement Managing the classroom includes the various intricacies of student learning that take account of expectations, interactions, motivation, and behavior. An analysis of the classroom management research shows four general components of classroom management that affect student achievement for all students. These four components are (1) rules and procedures; (2) disciplinary interventions, (3) teacher-student relationships, and (4) mental set. "Mental set" refers to the mindset with which you approach your classroom management. Improving your classroom management means you are constantly working to create a learning environment in which all students feel safe and appropriately challenged. It means the learning opportunities you provide to students are organized and delivered in ways that allow all students to succeed. Effective classroom management is a crucial component of ensuring that all students achieve in your classroom.  To successfully engage students. Classroom management is important for ensuring that students learn the material rather than committing it to short-term memory for tests. Engaging students in lectures by moving around the room, asking questions, and employing both verbal and nonverbal teaching methods ensure that students are paying attention and taking more from the learning experience than simple facts. Engaging students boosts their confidence and makes the lesson more effective.

Instructional strategies must be planned to fit into fixed time frames. Variables that affect your use of time include noninstructional routine procedures, transitions between activities or classes, and other interruptions. Managing classroom time involves handling administrative tasks quickly and developing strategies for making transitions and interruptions as short and orderly as possible—even using them as teachable moments. These routines and procedures form the backbone of an efficiently run classroom and help students feel secure in your classroom.  To maintain a positive classroom atmosphere Developing and maintaining a positive learning environment is a foundation for effective teaching. Managing the learning environment is an ongoing active process in which the teacher must be a careful observer, communicator, facilitator, and manager. Trainers try to offer their students a rich and inviting classroom environment because they know that the richness of students' experiences are enhanced or diminished by their surroundings. The classroom atmosphere also affects the way students behave, as well as how much attention they pay to instruction. To maintain a positive classroom environment, it is important to establish rules, procedures and standards; implement classroom routines; prevent problems from occurring, establish a clear standard of conduct; and instill a sense of respect and community among students. To further create a relaxed atmosphere in the classroom, the trainer must be friendly, understanding, respectful, patient, fair, set clear and reasonable expectations and be willing to provide help.  Sound behavior management to avoid classroom indiscipline Classroom discipline management is a skill that is not only learned but practiced daily. Sound behavior management establishes the environmental context that makes good instruction possible. An effective discipline plan is the key. A trainer must be fair and consistent towards students; must come to class prepared for the lesson at hand; make transitions between parts of lessons smooth; look out for signs of possible problems; make classroom rules understandable; use humor to diffuse situations and avoid sarcasm.
  3. 3. Trainers Methodology Plus Facilitate Learning Sessions Date Developed: September 2012 Document No: Issued by: Page 3 of 6Developed by: BPAP Revision #  To manage classroom resources effectively Effective classroom managers maximize the classroom’s physical space to facilitate easy teacher movement and proximity, as well as student movement and transitions. A high-quality training program necessitates a classroom rich in accessible, well-organized materials and inviting spaces where students can work alone, in groups, and with you. Try different seating arrangements (e.g., circles, semicircles, U- shapes, and squares). Constructive use of wall space makes a classroom more conducive to learning and evokes a more positive climate. Important factors include:  The type of furniture  The space in the classroom  The type of instruction and activities you intend for the class  Individual workspaces  Storage of materials and records  Bulletin boards, chalk boards and other wall spaces, including the door  Student movement and flexibility To accommodate every student in the classroom, a trainer uses a wide range of audio visual support devices:  Visual: Flipchart, Bulletin board/Pinboard, Whiteboard, Overhead projector, Slide Projector, props and Accessories, Video clips, Word pictures, Imaging  Hearing: Music (for change of mood/illustrations), sound effects, audio gimmicks, onomatopoeia  Feeling: Handouts, anecdotes, metaphors, parables
