Dr. Jones has developed methods of classroom management that are both powerful and affordable for all teachers. Classroom management expert Fred Jones identifies "three zones of proximity" and discusses how knowing what they are can help you "work the crowd" in your own classroom. Effective ways to encourage and teach appropriate student behaviors are highly valued by educators. Thus, the theorists of classroom management mentioned above continue to provide direction of contemporary
They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. 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.
Creating an environment where holding a high academic standard of learning comes from incorporating techniques that benefit the classroom as a whole. Observing educators during instructional times ensues reflection on one’s own teaching. The various teaching approaches in Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion series include effective ways to engage learners, manage behavior, and set high academic standards. Techniques such as “Cold Call,” “Everybody Writes,” “Strong Voice,” and “100 Percent” all prove that using routines in the classroom the learning process. If utilized, these systems advance the effectiveness of learning, and manage behaviors in a professional setting.
Students who have a growing hate for homework may think that “Repeating the same problems over and over is boring, difficult, and only reinforces the practice of discipline” (20 pros and cons). Repetition is not always the correct path to take students down to get them to like something or make them better at something. Teaching them fun and non stressful information is the correct way. Work after school should be used in a beneficial way rather than being stressful and
“Preventative discipline” involves the development of effective teaching strategies, tactics, organisation and planning by the teacher. Understanding the power of words and what teachers model to the learner Rogers terms “corrective discipline” and lastly, “supportive discipline” is described as creating a positive and enriched learning environment that also includes the student in developing resolutions to discipline issues (Rogers p. 4). However, Rogers asserts, it is the teacher’s philosophical position, both implicit and explicit, that will be
The teachers and I will uphold the ideal of “cause beyond oneself” and work together with the school community to achieve success through thoughtful and purposeful practice. A supervisor that is a student and teacher at heart will create meaningful relationships with staff and community, show genuine concern for the teacher’s stage of development and professional growth, and be a continuous learner by example. Building relationships will create a strong platform for change. Supervision reminds me of teaching in in many ways. Educators create classrooms that become democratic communities by valuing thoughts and individual needs.
When it comes to managing a classroom, I am sure that as I gain experience my methods and beliefs will change. However, it is still imperative that a beginning teacher has clear strategies for classroom management that are put into place before the first day of class even begins. This paper will discuss some of my current perceptions over how to be an effective classroom manager, detailing and justifying several key ideas and themes that will hopefully enable my classroom to become a well running and effective place of learning. To begin with establishing routines is perhaps the most important aspect of effective classroom management. This is an idea that has been stressed in multiple textbooks, and in every cooperating teacher I have
Darling-Hammond (2009) agree that prosperous professional development, one that leads to student achievement and success in the organization itself is reliant on authentic collaboration practices in an active professional learning community (p.11). They go on to conclude that as a result of school communities providing teachers with opportunities and time to develop strong working relationships, more sharing and consistency among educators and problems solving efforts will be observed (p.11). Greenleaf theory advances that a strong sense of community can only come from intended actions of the servant-leader (1970,
Page 32 of our classroom management book states, “Our goal as teachers should be creating an environment where children want to be and learn” and I could not agree more. I want my classroom to be a place where students’ thoughts and ideas are valued and where all voices are heard, in one way or another. I find the emotional environment of a classroom to be extremely important, especially in younger grades, because it can assist students in creating a positive outlook on school, for that year and for years to
The article “The Disadvantages of Longer School Days” it mentioned “When students are too tired or mentally exhausted to concentrate, the last hour of the day becomes useless” (Tucker, 2). Longer school days result in lack of attention and sleepiness, making the extra class time ineffective and pointless. Not to mention, students who are tired may fall asleep in class and do not participate. They can cause a disruption and affect the other students’ learning. If a student is tired, they may not get the full amount of education they should be receiving.
