During my observations, I noticed if a lesson is well planned and if it is interesting for the class, the teacher decreases the opportunity for the students to misbehave. The challenge lies in making a lesson plan engaging for all the students in the class (Wright, 2005). Classrooms are now becoming dynamic learning areas, there are students with different interests, background, abilities all grouped together in one class. Therefore, a homogeneous lesson cannot work. Differentiation during a lesson has now become an important part of behaviour for learning.
Teachers have the power to determine whether their classroom will be a caring atmosphere or an authoritarian environment for the students. Teachers need to curb their ego and model empathy, positive attitude, and leadership skills. She believes that if teachers use positive attitudes when dealing with difficult students, the students will respect the teacher more; therefore, the students will have better behaviors. Showing empathy toward the students will result in the student feeling like someone understands them. Creating relationships with students helps them feel safe in their environment and comfortable talking to the teacher.
Classroom management is the process by which teachers and schools create and maintain appropriate behavior of students in classroom settings. When classroom-management strategies are executed effectively, teachers minimize the behaviors that impede learning for both individual students and groups of students, while maximizing the behaviors that facilitate or enhance learning. Classroom management is really hard and there are many theorists that talk about it and each is different from the other where each theorist has his/her own ideas and thoughts. Some of them are mentioned below. In Redl and Wattenberg 's theories, they encompass group dynamics, self-control, the pleasure-pain principle, and understanding reality.
Student will participate in classroom activities and will be able to focus on academic concerns when they are not concerned for their safety. Additionally, students who may experience here ridicule or hazing will re-engage more quickly in a consistent and safe classroom setting. Common student behaviors designed for testing teacher consistency and classroom limits will diminish when students begin to understand the responses are in fact consistent. Therefore, this energy can be redirected for personal and academic growth. Furthermore, more serious student behavior, as a form of language, may also diminish in a safe and consistent classroom environment.
This professional development is promoting the needs of all learners. As mentioned data shows that our students are performing below grade level when it comes to reading comprehension. Our students are showing a lack of reading comprehension techniques and routines; this professional development will help teachers revisit key elements such as literary and pedagogical techniques that will promote reading comprehension as well as additional support for differentiation. This will help teachers implement such approaches in their lesson delivery to assure that students are utilizing them.
Research shows that evidence-based teaching strategies have a huge impact on students learning (Wilson et al.,2006). Student centered approach is a principal of communicative language teaching. This evidence-based practice involves engaging students actively in learning which are relevant to the classroom. In my class room, I use different methods to teach my diverse learners, in which they solve problems, formulate questions of their own, discuss things and explain by them during the
The activities are part of the teaching progress in classrooms so teachers need to be clear with the classroom management. Accordingly, tow resources are providing with the information of management. First, CAMPS a proactive approach to classroom management to K-8 grade. Second, Discipline in the secondary classroom appositive approach to behavior management to 9-12 grade. Both are design with structure to help student for success with the information about decision teachers need to make about the students.
Unfortunately, ﬁndings from classroom assessment research has revealed a gap between the recommended and the actual assessment practices regardless of teachers’ gender and teaching experience (Alsarimi, 2000). Brookhart (2001) stated that “grading theory and practices will be better connected once the role of classroom assessment and grading practices in student achievement motivation and, it seems reasonable to argue that to be able to understand and make sense out of the gap between assessment experts’ recommendations and teachers’ assessment practices, it is important to ﬁnd out the possible effects of these practices on students’ achievement goals as one aspect of student motivation for learning. Improved tests can still be improved further
Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. It also implies the prevention of disruptive behavior. It is one of the most difficult tasks or aspect of teaching for many teachers. This single skill has heavily contributed to teacher stress and burnout (Gordon, 2002, Jepson & Forrest, 2006), overall teacher efficacy(Caprarait al., 2003; Edwards it al., 2002), students achievement and teacher performance in the classroom (Edwards it al. ,2002; Milner, 2002; Pavlov, 2007), and has commonly been a major concern of principals regarding new teachers (Principal Perspective, 2004; Williams).
The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
I will be an effective teacher while providing a least restrictive environment (LRE) for my students. I will be supportive and open-minded to my students’ cultural backgrounds, while modifying individual accommodations appropriate for the students’ goals and academic achievements. Every student will receive an equal opportunity and be motivated to progress as an individual and a team member. Effectively communicating with students, parents and colleagues is one of the concepts most significant in helping an educator succeed. It is important to establish effective communication with the students, parents, and colleagues as soon as possible.
