Effective classroom manager have success in teaching and student learning. As a teacher, I will use these 7 positive classroom techniques in my classroom by (Allred, 2008); 1. Learning is Relevant: 2. Code of Conduct: 3. Teach Positive Actions: 4. Instill Intrinsic Motivations: 5. Reinforce Positive Behaviors: 6. Engage Positive Role Models: 7. Always Be Positive. The government, administrators, politician, communities, and department of educations utilize numerous of techniques to improve student learning and student proficiency in classrooms. They have worked together and through research to find ways that are more effective outside and in the classroom. Therefore, the first one is relevant. 1. Learning is Relevant: The four elements that support the idea that learning is relevant are active participants, tutoring process, differentiating instructions and differentiating related to learning styles. According to Piaget’s theories (as cited by Lemlech, 2010) states, that active participation, the students ' learn because the instruction has a connection. In other words, if instructions have no use or relate to something that will benefit, it is from one ear and out the other ear. It is like browsing the Internet or Facebook. You stop to read what you want to read. Also, Vygotsky’s theory states, that tutoring process raise the level of learning and development. By discovering students ' talents, learning styles, and interests, teachers can adjust teaching methods
My classroom philosophy begins with what type of teacher I will be in my classroom. To have successful classroom management, one must be an effective teacher. Some qualities that make an effective teacher include maintaining high expectations, being consistent, and caring. As a teacher, it is important to have high expectations for your students academically, but also behaviorally. In my classroom, I will uphold the traits and characteristics that I want to see in my students, through my own actions and words. Another quality that I will instill in my classroom and myself is consistency. In my classroom, I will be consistent in my classroom management. I will not favor a student and let them get away with something, and I will not be overly harsh on a student who is having a bad day or week. One of the most important qualities in an effective teacher is their ability to care for their students. In order to have successful classroom management, I must build relationships with my students. The more that my students know that I care for them and want to help them,
Within the classroom, it’s very important to have classroom management. To successfully run a class doesn’t automatically mean that the children have to sit quietly and not talk or interact with each other. It’s actually the total opposite. To maintain proper classroom management means to have a relaxed and caring environment where the students are getting their work down and interaction is taking place. My classroom management philosophy deals with this thinking and combines three different theorist who uses three different theories. My philosophy is to have a democratic, caring environment where my students have a voice, hold themselves and others accountable for their actions, make responsible choices, and build a sense of community and family. In my current field experience at Ocean Bay Middle School, my cooperating teaching uses a classroom management plan that is similar to my philosophy and the results are positive. My overall goal is to teach, enrich the lives of my students, and produce our future successors of tomorrow.
My classroom management philosophy is based on a combination of psychoeducational and behavioural theories which, will actively provide an environment where students are engaged, motivated and display appropriate behaviours (Lyons, Ford & Slee, 2014). Using psychoeducational theories as a basis, I will create a learning environment that implements student-teacher relationships, differentiated classroom instruction with equal opportunity to learning and an environment where students feel safe, valued and that they belong (Lyons et al., 2014). These strategies will provide many opportunities for students to learn regardless of where they come from or
Classroom management is one of the most important roles played by teachers because it determines teaching success. Effective teachers appear to be effective with students of all achievement levels regardless of the levels of heterogeneity in their classes. Effective classroom managers are those who understand and use specific techniques. Even if the school they work in is highly ineffective, individual teachers can produce powerful gains in student learning. Many techniques include classroom design, rules, discipline, scheduling, organization and communication.
In reading the article, “Managing Your Classroom for Success,” I was incredibly excited to know that the article was written by Rosemary and Harry Wong. In my previous research on classroom management, I learned that Harry Wong was one of the most sought after speakers on teacher effectiveness.
One of the biggest keys to being a successful teacher is classroom management. Of course, there are different needs depending on if you teach kindergartners or high school auto shop students, and every teacher has his or her own individual style. A constant through out all classrooms is this, without good classroom management, a teacher loses control. Once you lose control of the classroom the amount of actual teaching and learning diminishes to almost nothing.
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
Classroom management is the number one factor in student learning throughout the school system. How well a teacher organizes the space, time, and materials used for student learning, is the best determinant for how well a student will do in a given classroom (Wong & Wong, 2009). However, effective classroom management will include the discipline factor as well and how well they can handle bad behavior even though the goal is to create a positive learning environment Sternberg & Williams 2002 (as cited in Mesa Public Schools 2012). Effective classroom management has many things going on, some never seen by the students, some directly affecting the students, and some decided by the students.
Classroom management plays a crucial role in shaping a student’s performance in class. As a result, a teacher’s role is ensuring a conducive learning environment for all students. Teachers must put their best foot forward in ensuring they develop this invaluable skill which can only be learnt through continuous practice in the classroom. Generally, teachers are expected to manage their classrooms during the lessons. They are expected to arrange the classrooms (students), clearly outline the class rules before the start of a lesson, command behavior expectations, outline lesson goals as well as move around the
To start this section I want to quote, Harry Wong, as he has fundamentally affected me and the teacher that I want to become. “The only factor that increases student achievement is the significant of an effective teacher” (Wong & Wong, 2009). To me this means that the teacher must take responsibility for the environment they create and the disruptions that follow. Because so much weight is placed on the teacher’s shoulders, it to my benefit to understand and utilize classroom management strategies that prevent disruptions and aid the learning process. First, I will talk about establishing procedures, rules and teaching social skills. I will then follow with explaining how to use rapport, presence and strategies of engagement.
A classroom management plan is essential in order for a teacher to affect student learning. An effective plan will take into consideration many factors. First and foremost the focus must be on the content of the material to be taught. The teacher must plan the academic lessons thoroughly. It is important to keep your eye on the ball. Your goals for the academic progress must be at the heart of this plan. Therefore you must know where you are taking this class, before a path can be chosen. In this respect, I share the philosophy of William Glasser. He believes that the key to classroom management is a vital interesting curriculum. A need for this curriculum must be demonstrated to be relevant in their everyday lives, and
According to James Stronge, “By finding a way to motivate a student to learn, a teacher contributes to a student’s evolving attitude toward a particular subject or activity. In other words, the teacher can bring out the best in that student” (28). To successfully motivate and bring out the best in their student, the teacher must follow three priorities that are most important to being a successful teacher: they must be adaptable, a positive role model, and be patient. Those three priorities each have a part in helping the student evolve. By being adaptable, the teacher can attempt in a variety of ways and teaching styles to help their students learn the material efficiently. When the teacher is being a positive role model, the
Classroom management is essential to effective teaching because this is what makes a classroom flow forward in the direction of academic success and a great school year. The text states that “classroom management is comprised of the necessary processes to create and maintain a positive environment that is conducive to teaching and learning” (Newman, 2013). Classroom management plays an important role in the setup of a classroom. Classroom management should begin on the very first day of school. It is how efficiently a teacher can have schedules, structure, and procedures, well maintained in the classroom. When the teacher demonstrates what the expectations are on day one and continues to practice these routines and procedures, it sets the tone of the classroom from day one, and is what is expected the entire year. A teacher uses classroom management to create and maintain a learning environment. Discipline of students in a classroom has little to do with the learning environment and overall management of the classroom. The learning environment will be functional when there are positive expectations of the students. In a well-managed classroom students are involved with their work as the teacher facilitates instruction (N. A., n. d.). This increases student achievement and there is little time for confusion and disruptive behavior. Harry Wong states that “students know what is expected of them and are generally successful” (Wong, 1998). Expectations
Culture Counts! The effective management of any classroom starts with a solid understanding of who the students are. Schools today are diverse groupings of children, youth, and adults who see the world through their own lenses of experience, culture, and ethnicity. The teacher who fails to take into account the profound influence of these human differences can never expect to truly reach his or her students in a meaningful way. Effective teaching and effective classroom management means recognizing that the classroom is full of “other people’s children,” and the teacher’s first task is to learn who they are.
