Mainstreaming of Learning Disabled into Regular Classroom - The classroom scenario that I chose to present relates to the mainstreaming of the learning disabled into a regular classroom. The portrayal that I am going to use will be one of a veteran teacher who will be mainstreaming learning disabled into her classroom. I hope that you find this appropriate and fulfilling as I did. Twenty year veteran teacher, whom we will call Mrs. H., has been told that her classroom is soon to be mainstreamed with learning disabled students. Mrs. H is not very agreeable to this idea, yet she knows that she has to accept it as part of her current position as educator....   [tags: disabilities, classroom, Special Education, ]

My Philosophy of Classroom Management -   A.     Theoretical Introduction   My philosophy of classroom management is that the management of elementary classrooms require several things.  Among patience, determination and motivation are: flexibility, careful planning and consistency.  A well-managed classroom did not get well-managed without a teacher who planned, had a flexible vision and was determined.  Any new teacher, who is asked, will say they want a classroom with as few behavioral problems as possible as well as one that is easily manageable.  But any experienced teacher, who is asked, will tell those new teachers that classrooms do not come "well managed".  They have to be made into well-managed classrooms.  These experienced teachers would also encourage by saying that it is not easy, but that it is not impossible to have a manageable classrooms.  On the other hand, they would be quick to add that all classrooms will have behavioral problems at some point or another.  This is proven to be true to anyone who has been in an elementary classroom, whether they were a teacher, observer or a student themselves.  But what teachers can take to comfort is that they can prepare themselves.  The first thing that is needed is flexibility.  Being able to evolve with changing needs is something teachers need to acquire quickly.  Adaptability can make or break classroom climate.  A teacher who is not flexible and wants things one way, will find themselves in a power struggle that will be hard to reverse.  Also, the negativity will build up and make teaching unpleasant for the teacher and learning unpleasant for the students.  Being able to "go with the flow" will help teachers tremendously.  The second thing needed for classroom management is careful planning.  Now this does not mean having everything planned to the last detail, but instead, it means having at least a vision of what you, as a teacher, want your classroom to be like.  This would include everything from the way desks should be arranged and the order subjects are taught, to the type of activities given to enhance a lesson.  Planning of these things will help classroom management run much more smoothly.  Finally, classroom management requires consistency, particularly with discipline.  Inconsistent teachers who discipline only half of the time it is needed, send mixed messages to that child as well as to his/her classmates.  Teachers need to remember that following through with what they said helps the child remember that their undesirable behavior will not be tolerated and that there are consequences for their actions.  Consistency is a skill that teachers should make sure they have when they step into a classroom.  Flexibility, careful planning and consistency are key components, I think, that teachers would find helpful when dealing with classroom management....   [tags: Elementary Classroom Management 2014] 3300 words

Classroom Management Philosophy - Classroom Management Plan A.        The philosophy that I am developing behind my classroom management plan is one that is based on clear communication with my students.  I believe that it is important to value relationships with students because that is the starting point of creating a classroom climate that is positive and consistent.  It is my goal to cultivate self-directed students so that the behavior management is not taking up lots of valuable class time.  Although school seems competitive in its nature because we use grades as the form of evaluation, it is my thought that competition in the classroom should be limited because this will increase better behavior and achievement in all students.  Promoting the success of all students rather than promoting a competitive classroom will help each student feel that they are part of a community that wants them to do well.  Another important component of my classroom management plan also includes me looking at my own biases and being aware that my own values and beliefs will inevitably appear in my teaching.  It is important to me that this is monitored closely so that I am creating an environment that is fair and comfortable for all students....   [tags: Classroom Management Plan 2014] 2600 words

My Classroom Management Plan - Classroom Management Plan   A.                Theoretical Introduction   1.                   Philosophy of classroom management   My philosophy of classroom management can be compared, in many respects, to the construction of a building.  The effectiveness of my classroom throughout the school year will depend upon the early establishment of a strong “foundation.”  Three elements, in particular, are key to ensuring that this foundation is set firmly upon solid ground.  First, it is essential that expectations and classroom rules be established with considerable student input during the first days of the year.  The specific objectives of that process will be discussed in greater detail later in this plan.  Second, it is critical that a positive, healthy classroom environment be created at the very beginning of the school year.  The environment I seek in this regard is influenced primarily by the theories of William Glasser which will be discussed further later in this section.  And third, it is important that adequate time be invested early in the school year for students to learn and practice those skills that will ensure effective technical management techniques.  Student’s proficiency in responding to my cues, directions and signals in a timely, consistent fashion will pay dividends throughout the school year in the form of valuable learning time not lost....   [tags: Secondary Classroom Management 2014] 6000 words

My Classroom Management Plan -   A classroom management plan is essential in order for a teacher to affect student learning.  An effective plan will take into consideration many factors.  First and foremost the focus must be on the content of the material to be taught.  The teacher must plan the academic lessons thoroughly.  It is important to keep your eye on the ball.  Your goals for the academic progress must be at the heart of this plan.  Therefore you must know where you are taking this class, before a path can be chosen.  In this respect, I share the philosophy of William Glasser.  He believes that the key to classroom management is a vital interesting curriculum.  A need for this curriculum must be demonstrated to be relevant in their everyday lives, and their futures.   The students must see that their basic needs of survival, belonging, power, freedom, and fun can be met through cooperation with the lesson plans.  He believes that children will even exhibit the appropriate behavior to achieve these ends.  I believe that this is a little idealistic, but a relevant curriculum with appropriate consequences for effort or lack of effort will be effective.  The better this is done the more intrinsic motivation will exist.  Kohn, put the emphasis on content, as well, while Albert and Dreikurs stress the need for belonging.  Gordon shares this aspect of intrinsic motivation through need satisfaction with the other four, but stresses the appropriate use of power to affect this result. Their views on the priority of needs and the implementation strategy differ a little, but there is a great deal of similarity.  For instance their view of children is that they are capable of making choices.  These goals should be made clear to the students, so that the classroom physical arrangement, procedures, and social contract reflect a logical progression toward this end.  They all feel that establishing a classroom community is important.  After all the need for belonging is very important.  Being an integral part of a community is belonging on a very large scale.  For students or anyone to feel like they are members of a community, they must have made an investment in it.  Albert believes that the contribution to the code of conduct is a sufficient contribution to form a community.  Gordon suggests that contracts and agreements establish communities, as does Dreikurs.  Kohn places the emphasis on cooperative learning, where academic contributions are the best way to forming a safe comfortable community.  I think that they are all correct, but I believe that even a bigger investment could be made.  Just like any community, it is important to have leaders and assignment of responsibilities.  The method and process for the selection of these should be determined by the social contract, but I would like to see these issues put on the table.  Here again I agree with Jones in practice but not theory.  I like student led bell work and studentassigned chores.  I think that if the leadership roles and chores were student generated, regulated, and rotated, everyone would eventually have a physical investment in each other and in the classroom itself.  It could be a viable community....   [tags: Elementary Classroom Management 2014]

Elementary Classroom Management Plan -   A.        THEORETICAL INTRODUCTION Philosophy of Classroom Management             My personal philosophy for managing a room is not so much as management but rather a way for both my students and I to enjoy time together learning and performing fun lessons.  It would be ideal if I did not have to worry about managing students but rather know that they will be well behaved and ready to learn, but ideally this is not realistic.  Yet I believe that at any time you have to have a management plan it should be one of mutual respect and understanding, with these two ideas working together the classroom will run itself.  Of course rules will need to be set at the beginning of the year and the students, as well as, the teacher need to understand them fully and what consequences are going to take place. No deviation from the plan should have to occur once it is implemented.              I know I am a very optimistic, easy going person, so it will not be hard for me to make my classroom fun, however, I also believe in hard work because every individual has to be responsible for one’s destiny.  So I strongly believe that we need to take all that it is offered for free and most especially our education, because without it we will not go far.  Part of my philosophy will be to educate my students to the importance of their education for their well-being and for their futures.  My students will know that there is a time to learn and a time for fun and together we can do both.  Assumptions the Nature of Young People and Learning             Students, especially elementary school students, are like sponges they are ready to absorb and retain many lessons if we give them the chance....   [tags: Classroom Management Philosophy 2014] 2970 words

Anything else is not classroom management. It’s damage control.

My Classroom Management Plan -         For many people, "discipline" is considered synonymous with physical punishment.  For others, it is seen as something that must be done to make children behave "properly".  Even the dictionary's definition seems to support this image:  "1. Training of the mental, moral, and physical powers by instruction, control, and exercise.  2. Subjection to rule and authority.  3. Punishment or disciplinary action for the sake of training."  Although this sounds like some kind of military training, there are many forms of discipline which do not necessarily involve some kind of abuse.  Many methods exist of refraining a child from acting in a negative manner that do not undermine their self-esteem and allow them to use the lessons learned in the future.  They will also begin to understand the idea of positive criticism and be able to accept it to use to their advancement, now and in the future....   [tags: Elementary Classroom Management 2014] 3900 words
