Whereas when you teach discipline, you are helping them learn and develop your expectations and students will acquire this information in a more respectful manner. Like Gordon stated, Students want to feel a sense of community and by respecting students and teaching them how you wish them to act in class more effectively then me telling them this is how things are in my classroom. I believe that for the most part, students are good, but can often make bad choices. Although some students are naturally disruptive, they normally have a reason behind why are they are acting in a disruptive manner. I believe that if students are actively engaged in the learning process and students are being challenged and interested in the topic, they will behave and will not be disruptive.
One being that students will find the answers to the questions they got wrong and two being that it will help alleviate some stress, since students will know that they can at least partially re do an assessment to get a higher score. Evaluating strategies to help alleviate test anxiety is key. Teachers must evaluate themselves at all times to get better at what they do. If something were not working then it would be important to fix that issue, so it will not hamper progress. Everything a teacher does, needs to be evaluated.
With this, the students will be more eager to speak in depth about the lesson or ask questions. When students are interacting more, this causes less of a frustration from the teacher and they are more willing to spend time with the students to make sure they comprehend the lesson being taught, and that they are able to critically think about it. Thus, it enables both the students and the teachers to overcome their titles, where no one is higher than or less than the other. However, although there is a bond between the teacher and the student, it is important that a boundary is set, and not to be crossed by either one. They must remain respectable to each other, and to understand that not everyone thinks the same.
My reaction to inappropriate behavior can provide powerful learning experiences that will help students improve their self-management skills and develop self-responsibility. Another strategy that will help prevent minor disruptive behavior that I will be using is proximity control. As a teacher who consistently moves around the classroom, using proximity control to reduce disruptive behavior aligns perfectly with my teaching style. When I implement this strategy a student may be misbehaving and I can move closer and closer to a student depending on the behavior.

Teachers should try and add fun, interactive and life like activities. Without certain types of activities students find the information they are learning useless and they need to be able to relate things they learn in class with the outside world. All teachers should strive to create an intangible connection with each student. Each student should see their teacher or professor as a friend, not an enemy, that they can trust and relate to.

Creating a Respectful, Supportive Learning Environment Classroom environment is important to the students’ learning, if the student doesn’t feel like they are in a place to learn but instead a playground they will not want to learn. I would want to create a comfortable classroom environment that is fun but also serious about learning and educating. I would want to make the students feel comfortable enough to ask questions, answer mine, and even talk to me about things that interest them or bothers them outside of class and school. With that environment and relationship with my students I feel that they would have a respect for me and would see that I actually care and have their best interest. A wise man once told me, “Students don’t care how
Teachers make sure they do this by making time for their students, which means having personal meetings with them. When teachers use their own time to help students, it further shows how supportive teachers are. When students know they can depend on a teacher, the students then feel more comfortable in their learning situation and will be more likely succeed. To further emphasize this support of teachers to students, many teachers use a method of ‘Praise, Question, Polish’; which helps to critique students on a comfortable basis. By using this method, students also learn to become more independent when teachers show them, gradually, that students will learn to write better with the ease of criticism.
Implementing diversity training into the curriculum can better help students relate to each other. Teaching students to be aware of nonverbal cues as well as different cultural conventions can help create and enforce personal boundaries and increase tolerance between students. If this is implemented and enforced correctly, it would help the students to feel safe and comfortable with each other because they would know that respecting one another is a classroom expectation. Teachers need to be acutely aware of the nonverbal communication they are utilizing in the classroom. A careless mistake can send the wrong message.
Understanding the child’s problem, fear, or confusion will give the teacher a better understanding the child’s learning difficulties. Once the teacher becomes aware of the problems, he or she will have more patience with the student, thus making the child feel secure or less confused when learning is taking place in the classroom.
It is important to improve relationship between teacher and student to get students more interest in learning. Thus, we can get the honest feedback from our students if they are really facing some problems in their learning. Once, we get the feedback from the students, we can think critically
