My philosophy of classroom management is to allow students to be responsible for their own behavior at all times. I believe allowing students to be responsible for their behavior and actions allow them to have a sense of freedom. When students have freedom, they seem to be more successful and respectful. Classroom management is more successful when the class is student-centered. Students should be included in the planning of classroom rules, room arrangement, and communication should flow smoothly between teacher and student. Although the class is student-centered the teacher should be in control of the classroom. The teacher should know what is going on at all times, plan interesting and informative lessons, and be
The majority of children/young people do not present challenging behavior, and they attend a range of educational settings in environments which are conducive to learning appropriate behaviors. It is essential to ensure that behavior which does not meet school/setting’s expectations, is responded to through management strategies that do not rely upon any form of physical or abusive
It is important for a teacher to challenge disruptive behaviour immediately and consistently. I feel by trying to make lessons enjoyable and providing work that helps students to achieve minimizes disruptive behaviour. The use of good communication by the teacher can also be a useful tool. This includes the use of the voice, phrasing, eye contact and body language. For example, using an assertive tone when making a request or physically positioning yourself near disruptive students.
As it can be seen behaviorism is a major part of any classroom. For if one student acts out then the rest might get the idea that they can also act out in class and not receive punishment for it. It is also good to have a classroom management in place. Classroom management is also called behavior management. As it states in A Beginning Teaching Portfolio Handbook, “For these teachers, motivated students are those who do what they are told to do when they are told to do it.” (Foster,Walker,Song, pg. 99, para. 9) Which means when a
This article offers strategies for teachers to use to help their most challenging students with behavioral issues. One of the authors is a child psychiatrist who works with at-risk children and the other is a behavior analyst and special educator. Their approach is based on the premise that educators can only control certain elements in the classroom and their own behavior when it comes to students with challenging behavior. The created the acronym FAIR:”F is for understanding the function of the behavior, A is for accommodations, I is for interaction strategies, and R is for responses” (2). The function of behavior can include escaping from something, obtaining a tangible thing, engaging in sensory activities, and getting attention. These functions are the benefits the student gets from the behavior. The escape motivated behavior happens when a student tries to avoid a “task, demand, situation, or person” (3). The tangible behavior occurs when the student wants to get objects like money or feed or something else they want. Sensory behavior happens when a student tries to get the attention of an adult or classmate. This can occur when the student is “bellergent, screaming, or continually interrupting the teacher” (3). Negative attention can reinforce attention-seeking behavior because it is better than nothing and the student may prefer it because it is more predictable than positive attention. Taking ABC
November 12th, 2015 at 12:13pm at Windham Middle School, students were coming out of the cafeteria like animals loud, pushing, an shoving in the hallway. All the students happened to be sixth graders. Some of the students were dangerously pushing, shoving, and running. Most of the student were extremely loud. Teachers noticed that this has become a problem because it is distracting to some students. This is a really big problem because it distracts students from their work. This is a problem that can be resolved easily by teachers watching and discussing with students on how to behave in the
As much as four times a day OM gets upset and start to scream at me or his follow students if something does not go exactly the way he wanted. He often cruse at his classmate and even push or hit them if the situation escalates.
Whether it disrupts the entire classroom or something only you witness, challenging behavior is something every teacher and parent alike comes across at some point in life. Challenging behavior comes in many shapes and forms, as it can be physical or verbal and aggressive or disruptive. As a teacher, there are several techniques and approaches to dealing with this behavior. An important thing to remember when dealing with challenging behavior is that your child has feelings. Whether your child screams in your face because he or she does not get his or her way or hits another friend because he or she is angry about cleaning up, there is a reason why the child is upset. Communication is key when dealing with challenging behavior and having a supportive environment is also important. First, you need to assess the problem that involves challenging behavior. Talk to the child. Understand the story. Ask the child what the two of you can do to help the situation. If these two steps do not help, then give the child two choices. For example, if there is a child who does not want to clean up centers, you can say, “You can clean up centers or you can sit out for four minutes while we are…” If this does not work, I usually ask for help from either other teachers or the Director. Sometimes it can be hard to understand where a child is coming from with their behavior whether it is attention based or not. I just like to remember that it is your job to keep your students safe and that they have feelings that need to be
Disruptive behaviors are conditions that can have a great influence in the teaching environment. Disruptive behaviors unswervingly hinder the ability of the teacher or the capability of a learner to benefit from their classroom experiences. Students attend schools with hopes of being productive citizens of society. I like to think of students as future leaders of tomorrow! For the most part, students attend school because it is the law. A learning environment should have actively engaged students, who are eager to participate and show knowledge is being acquired on a daily basis. However, some students are bored and disengaged with academic struggles, due to non-active lessons. Certain life factors such as family problems, financial difficulties are all factors that distract and contribute to students disruptive behaviors. One of the most detrimental settings for a teacher in a class is classroom management. Classroom management is defined as being "the methods and strategies an educator uses to maintain a classroom environment that is conducive to student success and learning" (McCreary, 2011). Disorderly student conduct is unfavorable to the entire academic process because they impede with the learning process of other classmates and cause teachers not to be able to instruct teachers most effectively.
Having an open line of communication between the educator and parent is a very important component in implementing a success classroom management plan. Providing a plan that is simple is not only a positive for students, but it also helps parents to understand exactly what is expected of their children in the classroom.
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
Students all have their own personalities, which affects their actions within the classroom. Many times, a students’ behavior is caused by outside factors causing them to act out with disruptive behaviors and disciplinary issues. During these times, a teacher must have a behavior management approach to deter similar behaviors in the future. Many first time teachers are unable to handle dealing with the behaviors and leave their jobs making it all the more important to come up with an effective behavior management approach to curtail those worrisome behaviors before it gets to that point (Sugai, 2009). In an effort to thoroughly discuss an efficient behavior management approach, a common disciplinary problem within classroom and the foundation of the issue will be considered. A combination of approaches may be to needed to stop behavioral issues, such as providing motivation and establishing rules and procedures in a clear way will deter behavioral issues. Finally, an in-depth look at the steps needed in order to implement the approach into the classroom.
Disorders of this nature alter the students’ brains and often lead to greater impulsivity and poor short-term memory. This translates into kids blurting out responses before asking for permission and forgetting what to do next in class. Thus, children cannot be held accountable for such outlandish eruptions and their actions should be treated as a disorder not disobedience. Furthermore, a teacher may disapprove of a student’s actions, but never of the child. For example, this quality is reflected with a teacher and a student named Maria in Texas, “Maria, your constant chatter during class is so annoying.” This comment communicates rejection of the child’s behavior, but not the person.
Classroom management focuses on the way the classroom is run. It is proactive and requires preparation on the front end before activities begin. Classroom management is initiated by the teacher and the students react appropriately. Classroom management allows procedures, in
