There are different strategies that can be used by the teachers for effective class management among which the most significant is clearly setting out the format of lessons. This is done with the help of setting objectives and aims, giving regular positive feedback, reviewing the learning outcomes and giving an in depth summary and final exercise to the students. While on the other hand, the teacher can also make use of rubrics for understanding the abilities of students.

One of the many benefits of the middle school model is that being part of a team forms a bond between the teachers and students. “The team and their students truly become a community of learners.” (Kellough & Kellough, 2008, pg 8) In order for a team to be successful teams must provide tools to help students grow. (Erb, T. O, 2006, pg 5) Teachers get to know their students very well. Since students in middle school are going through physical, social, and psychological development that could affect their academic performance, it is important to have teachers who really get to know their students. Every learner has different needs and teachers need to take into consideration the individual learning needs of students in order to help them succeed.

The group were communicating ideas effectively and I believe this observation was clearly a result of how passionate the teacher was about the pupil’s questions and how well the teacher engaged with the learning taking place. According to the teacher standards, teacher should “encourage pupils to take a responsible and conscientious attitude to their own work and study” (Teacher Standards, 2011) The attribute of being enthusiastic is a huge starting point for children that have an unwilling attitude
Usefulness of operant conditioning for teachers Discipline is important for child’s success and development. Operant condition has been found very effective to get good behaviors from the students by applying in the class room. Under this theory teachers can give immediate feedback to students likes smiling face and saying words like “well done” “great effort” I like you work”. The satisfaction child gets on spot lead child to behave well in the classroom there onwards. Through this kind of positive reinforcement the child will be engaged in learning just to get impressing from the teachers.
Classroom management and consistency is very important with this class. I know I have improved a lot from the beginning, like with being proactive about handling student conflicts. However, I need to work on being able to talk down a student when they are very upset. Overall, my management skills with get better with the more experience I have in a classroom. Character and personality As a beginning teacher, I believe in building relationships with the students, parents, and community.
When I think back to my placement and reflect on what I wanted to achieve the most, it was to connect with my students and build a relationship.

The gradual release model is used in every topic in Mrs. Kern’s class and the students respect each other and the group to make it run smoothly and are always kind to those that may need more explicit instruction. Her class actually says, “I do”, “We do” and “You do” prior to the steps being worked on. This helps them to recognize that they are being helped, they are helping and they are doing what they have learned. It gives them a sense of pride and
Coty’s philosophy of building a relationship with students is so on point. Her idea is that the more a student likes and respects you, the more they’ll want to behave and do well in your class. I remember a story from my father’s childhood where the only class he actually tried to do well in was because he really liked the teacher. Having a positive attitude, getting down on a child’s level, being silly with them, and letting them know you care are all great ways to build a relationship and thereby improve your classroom management abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Coty’s dissertation on knowing where students are going and where they’ve been in order to tailor your lessons to their academic needs.

He also maintained the class very well during the group activities by previously assigning roles. Roles like timekeeper, table leaders, and recorders. These jobs kept the students on task throughout the entire process and also made them more involved in the learning process. He also created a very positive learning environment by creating little phrases as a class. This is a fun way to have a bond with the students so that they can be involved with the learning process and also know when to move from one activity to the next.
