In the 21st century, teachers experience many behavioral issues with students in the classroom and face challenges that are very difficult to resolve. School districts have different expectations about how students must behave during school and teachers have their own expectations about how students must behave in their classroom. Every educator has different classroom expectations and students must follow specific standards; therefore, the responsibility of the teacher is to discuss the standards with all students and make sure those expectations are clear. According to Jones and Jones (2016), teachers whose students made greater achievement gains were observed establishing rules and procedures, and carefully monitoring student’s work.

One thing that does not work in our school-wide support committee is students not being responsible for their own actions. For instance, we have a big number of students that do not complete assignments in the classroom. Sometimes I go to the restroom and I observe students not flushing the toilet or throwing trash outside the trash can and I have to talk to them about being a responsible person. Another expectation that we need to improve in our school is students not respecting each other and not respecting other’s property. For instance, last year, there were many incidents about students not respecting other’s property and not being polite to their peers. In our district, we also need to improve on how to deal with the negative behavior of students in the classroom and stop sending them to the office or ISS (In-School-Suspension) because if students are sent out of the classroom because of inappropriate behavior, they are losing instruction in all their classes. These are not effective ways to handle student’s disruptions in the classroom; therefore, educators need to establish a learning environment that will decrease disruptions and increase student’s learning. These are some of the school-wide behavior expectations in my school that we are deficient and need to improve in …show more content…
There are many school-wide behavior expectations that will included in my future planning to establish a learning environment and decrease disruptions in the classroom. For this reason, I will teach social behavior to students during my lecture and provide opportunities so they can interact among each other. According to Flannery and Fenning (2014), teachers need to recognize and respond to the need to teach appropriate social behavior at the same time they are teaching the specific lesson (Flannery & Fenning, 2014). I chose these expectations mainly because it helps students meet their needs with a positive behavior and provide opportunities for students to develop social skills. Teachers need to provide opportunities for all students to practice and enhance their social skills (Banks & Obiakor, 2015). Another reason why I chose these expectations is because it enhances student’s positive behavior of culturally and linguistically diverse students. For instance, different resources will be assigned to students where they will be able to practice their skills and change their attitude to become better citizens. For this reason, schools must begin focusing on providing students the skills, attitudes, and knowledge they will need to be successful in the pluralistic and interdependent world in which students will live and work as adults (Diaz-Rico, 2014). Providing meaningful
Help students increase their perception of control over their environment by showing them how to better manage their own stress levels. Instead of telling students to act differently, take the time to teach them how to act differently. By introducing conflict resolution skills, teaching anger and frustration management, helping student set goals, role-modeling, teaching and exemplifying social skills, as a teacher I can have a huge impact on these children and could help buffer the effects of their habitus, cultural capital, SES, and step in to help stop the cultural reproduction of social inequality in my classroom. Ultimately, I want my students to benefit from the hidden curriculum in my classroom, and I would work hard to ensure that the unwritten, unofficial, and often-unintended lessons, values, and perspectives I expose my children to are beneficial and positive in shaping their
(2005, Charles) The premise of Assertive Discipline is that both teachers and students have the “need and right” (2005, Charles) to a caring and respectful classroom environment. Teachers are required to facilitate learning and assist students in reaching their full potential. This is accomplished by teachers clearly and confidently articulating class expectations and teaching student’s what behavior is “acceptable and unacceptable” (Marsh 2010 p233). Cooperative behavior is encouraged by “incentives and recognition” (Lyons et al., 2014) whilst unruly behaviour is managed with a “hierarchy of sanctions” (Lyons et al., 2014). Equally, teachers also have the right to facilitate learning in a proficient manner without interruptions from students and have support from administrators and parents. (Berghuis, 2005,
The teachers’ job is to provide clear and concise communication to their students directly, explaining what is expected out of them and how they are to meet those expectations (Charles, 2014). Teachers should rationalize any rules that have rewards or consequences to their students to ensure they have a clear understanding. Implementing classroom procedures and rules is important for creating a classroom management routine and teachers have to be consistent in order for the system to work (Charles, 2014). Performing rudimentary day-to-day activities continually during the first few weeks of school will leave little room for error for the future (Charles,
Classroom behavior is a broad term that encompasses a range of nonacademic school behaviors. Included are the student's conduct within the school setting, response to school rules and routines, interpersonal relationships with teachers and other students, and self-concept and attitude toward school. A classroom behavior problem can interfere with academic performance; likewise, poor academic achievement can influence classroom conduct, precipitating inappropriate social behaviors. The implementation of a Behavior Management Contract is an effective strategy designed to alter behavior. The plan motivates students to take ownership of and reduce socially unacceptable behavior while reinforcing and fostering desired behavior. This rationale will convey how inclusive students and teachers collaborate to improve social skills, decision-making abilities and problem solving skills.
When students learn about social behavior and relationships it is easier to understand why the behavior of other people is different from others. Our society has many ways of socializing with people around us, and getting to know the right way is an important factor. Everyone in our society has their own behavioral reaction to things and other people, therefore knowing how to react to any type of behavior, and not bring up a problem is something very important. If students are able to understand all the different ways in which they can socialize with others, then it will allow them to feel more comfortable with
Reiterating the link between behaviour and learning, the basis of high-quality classroom management is to have high expectations for pupil behaviour. (TDA, 2009) Not only does having high expectations of the children promote learning, if the expectations for behaviour are clear and the rules made explicit then the pupils know exactly what is required of them. Essentially, teachers get what they expect from their pupils - this includes behaviour and learning. (Kuklinski and Weinstein, 2003; Arthur and Cremin 2010) The standards for...
Robinson’s method of handling Emily’s disobedience towards classroom rules was the fact that he lacked empathy when it came to finding a solution for the issue. Ramifications for poor classroom behavior should never decrease a student’s dignity. A mutual respect between the student and the teacher should remain even when a complication in the classroom arises (Farr, 2009, p. 137). Conjointly, Mr. Robinson should also exercise classroom consequences on a progressive level that considers the severity of the dilemma and if this is a repeated action. Additionally, to encourage appropriate classroom behavior, teachers should first implement clear classroom standards for the students to follow. One of the most effective ways of constructing standards is to focus on positive ones that assure students what they should be doing, opposed to what they should not be doing. As well, teachers should strive to build relationships with their students where beneficial communication between the two can take place. In the case of having to unfortunately reprimand a student, proper communication can help the message be delivered with more consideration. With all of this in mind, teachers will be able to establish more productive ways of handling classroom behaviors, from both the teacher and the student, that are considered
A few students in a classroom will grasp and learn quickly, but at the same time there will be those who have to be repeatedly taught using different techniques for the student to be able to understand the lesson. On the other hand, there are those students who fool around and use school as entertainment. Teaching then becomes difficult, especially if there is no proper communication. Yet, teachers, creating a positive relationship with their students, will not necessarily control of all the disruptive students. The book, Responsible Classroom Discipline written by Vernon F. Jones and Louise Jones discuss how to create a learning environment approachable for children in the elementary schools. According to the Jones, “ Student disruptions will occur frequently in classes that are poorly organized and managed where students are not provided with appropriate and interesting instructional tasks”
Each student should be treated as an individual in the classroom and the same should go for how you deal with misbehaving students. When a student misbehaves in the classroom the teacher should not punish the student for the behavior they are showing. Instead the
The research shows that behaviour management is a multi-dimensional challenge that challenges teachers, as there is more than one underlying factor on misbehaviour in classrooms. According to Evertson and Weinstein (2006), the purpose of behaviour management is to create and sustain an orderly environment for student learning, and to enhance the social and moral growth of students. In support of this perspective, they suggest that teachers carry out a number of specific tasks such as:
As the diversity in classroom progresses, there are always tensions between students, which reflect on teachers. Educating students from different cultures puts teacher in a position where it is essential to perceive ways in order to make a classroom safe and strip away all of the stereotypes students deal on daily basis. Teachers have to recognize those stereotypes, and overcome them between students, “by examining their own roles in the perpetuation of institutional racism” (Kendall, 1996, p.4). Once succeeded, with the result of harmonized classroom, teacher and students will explore a new space full of fun activities and learnings.
Students should be encouraged to interact with one another and to develop social virtues such as cooperation and tolerance for different points of view. Also, teachers should feel no compulsion to focus their students' attentions on one discrete discipline at a time, and students may be responsible for learning lessons that combine several different subjects.
During the first day of school, a variety of different students enter the classroom. These students are excited and nervous, they have their parents by their sides who are observing the classroom walls and arrangement. From the minute the students enter the classroom, students are observing the classroom environment and notice the everything. Everything in the classroom needs to have a purpose, but provide a pleasant environment. When preparing and organizing the classrooms, teachers need to consider the different variables that impact the classroom. Classrooms can be disorganized if the walls are cluttered and have no meaning The organizations of the desks, the wall decorations, and the seating arrangements significantly impact the physical environments. Students are like sponges, they soak up everything that surrounds them. In the article A comparison of actual and preferred classroom environments as perceived by middle school students in the Journal of School Health stated “studies have shown that classroom environments are closely related to a number of aspects of student
Given that this study in particular focuses on integrating previous to compare the implications of the findings. Important factors were the student’s academic performance, his/her characteristics, and teacher’s expectancy score. To measure the teacher’s perceived social competence the teachers completed the Social Skills Questionnaire from the Social Skills Rating System (Hinnant et al). The assessment composed of 48 items describing child behavior and each rated on a 3-point scale reflecting how often the participants exhibited each behavior. The last 9 items of this questionnaire requires the instructor’s judgments of the student’s academia or behaviors as observed in your classroom and must be compared to the other students in the class. The key items for SSRS were the characteristics of the participants such as; cooperation, assertion, responsibility, and self-control (Hinnant et
