The students must trust that the teacher has their best interest at heart. This trust will help build a positive relationship between student and teacher. This is important for giving the students a sense of purpose, as they will then be more motivated to succeed. This allows them to be more active in class activities and engage in discussion. Not only is trust important between teacher and student, but also between students. A student should not fear ridicule when providing their opinion or an answer. This is a teacher’s responsibility to establish a sense of community by allowing students to get to know each other and develop positive relationships throughout the entire classroom. Students must be made aware that it’s our differences that make us unique, but it’s our similarities that make us human. The classroom should be a place of acceptance, where every student’s well-being is
I have spent many hours researching, discussing, and experiencing different ways to manage a classroom. Cleveland State University has given me the opportunity to focus a lot of time on developing my own philosophy of teaching and how I will manage my own classroom. I will incorporate my personality into my classroom, while focusing on concepts from theorists Jacob Kounin, Fredrick Jones, Rudolf Dreikurs and Linda Albert, Lee Canter and Marlene Canter, William Glasser, B.F. Skinner, Haim Ginott, and Thomas Gordon. I have taken ideas from each of their models to form my own theory on managing a classroom. I believe in showing students that I care about them and their success as well using basic classroom management techniques to create a positive classroom environment.
Classroom and Discipline Management My classroom management plan is very simple, yet I have found it to be extremely effective. This strategy has worked in every classroom that I have taught in. My approach is always student-centered as I will help students to develop a sense of responsibility for the actions they choose. The behavior standards in my classroom are high yet developmentally appropriate for the grade that I am teaching. My students will play an equitable role in creating rules for our classroom environment.
Classroom Management Plan Theoretical Introduction: Classroom Empowerment Classroom management has garnered a negative connotation over the years. I intend on rectifying its notoriety with the help of my students. Although the term “management” accurately reflects the systematic, intentional, and multi-faceted elements of maintaining a successful classroom, another word that might supplant it is “empowerment.” As a prospective teacher, I hope to work closely with my students to develop the optimum environment conducive to learning. Accomplishing this will require that we implement a cohesive social contract with logical and relevant consequences tailored for our class, which should solidify our shared expectations and help meet the needs of every member in the class.
The job of a teacher is never easy but we have seen how cooperative discipline and enabling students to feel capable, connected and contributing can improve classroom management and maybe even our own moods. If we create an environment of mutual respect and give our students legitimate power of voice and choice in the classroom we will see positive results in improved student behavior and student achievement. Because when our students believe that they can succeed, they will.
I have heard that for many beginning teachers, classroom management can be one of the most challenging aspects of their new career. Knowing this, I decided to experiment with many classroom management approaches during my student teaching to find one that fit both my students and myself. Based on these experiences, I designed a classroom management plan that I will implement in my classroom as a beginning teacher. It is important to note, however, that my classroom management philosophy will be evolving as necessary as I gain more experience and insight into the field of teaching. Also, my classroom management plan may need to be altered to fit my specific group of students.
Purpose Classroom management plays an important role in effective teaching by providing a desirable environment which promotes better learning and student growth. The most important effect that classroom management has on student behavior is that it promotes better learning because students can better focus when their environment is free from distraction and conflict. When a teacher provides a well-organized and controlled environment, student’s academics interest and performance increase while behavioral issues decreased (Pope, 2010). One classroom management technique I plan to use in my future classroom setting will include the use of cooperative learning.
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.
Classroom management is a necessary component to every classroom. It includes creating a set of rules and clear expectations that all students follow. This helps unify the classroom for both the teacher and students allowing for a smooth, effective, and educational environment. When the students are aware of what is expected, they are motivated in order to attain the goals dispensed by the teacher. Some students are naturally motivated and want nothing more than to surpass goals for the sake of triumph and pleasing the teacher. Other students need extrinsic motivation in order for them to become engaged in
Classroom management is a key element to establish a successful learning environment in any classroom. An effective classroom management plan creates a positive learning environment. Classroom management is affected by the characteristics of the students and their behavior. Students’ behavior is influenced by their age, academic abilities, goals, interests, and home backgrounds (Evertson, Emmer, and Worsham, 2006). Teachers need a diverse array of classroom management skills to facilitate learning. A classroom with a proper management plan will spend less time in disciplining and more time in learning. Students in effectively managed classrooms know and follow clearly defined rules and routines. A classroom management plan should provide for several important factors that influence proper discipline in the classroom (Edwards, 2004).
