My Definition Of Classroom Management In Education

Improved Essays
Personal Teaching Theory
Classroom management can mean many different things depending on who you are talking to. I have been working in education for the last four years of my life and I have been in different types of classrooms. I spent one year as a teacher’s aide in a TMD (Teachable Mentally Disabled) classroom and the last three years teaching in a computer lab. With all of that being said, I have found my definition of classroom management. I feel that classroom management is the ability to provide an atmosphere where the students are well-behaved, interested, and abide to all of the expectations of the classroom.
When I implement lessons and ideas into my classroom, I always ask my students what they would like to do in order to keep

My classroom has rules, routines, and procedures. I am going to start with the daily routine in my classroom. Everyday there will be a bell ringer on the Promethean Board that relates to the current day’s discussion, but forces them to use information on the previous day. All of the students answer the question on the board and save it to their documents. This usually takes up the first five minutes of class. Before we go into the current day’s lesson we have a brief discussion about the bell ringer.
After that we go into the lesson for that day, but at the end of each class students are to turn their individual assessment into me. This procedure is very simple; students are allowed to print their assignments off by rows. One person from each row gathers the assignments from the printer and places them in a designated area in the front of the classroom at the end of class on their way out of the classroom. This also makes my classroom a safer place because there are not as many students standing around getting in each other’s way.
Now for the rules, my classroom only has four rules. These rules are very simple, but cover many other rules that most teachers have in their classrooms. I wanted the rules to be simple, so students will not have a hard time remembering them and making excuses on why they are not following the rules. Those rules include;

Like all things in life there are a few hiccups here and there. I would like to think that the classroom is well organized and structured so students could have the best environment possible to learn. Throughout the class students stay on task and work diligently. It is the job of the teacher to get the best out of students. She expects all of her students to reach their full potential and all of her students know that she is going to push them in order to get their best for each assignment. Unfortunately, the classroom does have a few distractions. There are classes where several of the students have IEPs (Individualized Educational Programs) and they tend to disrupt class at times. Some of them have fast passes, which allows them to leave class when they become upset or have anxiety attacks. The classroom is a computer lab, so there is not space to do many activities that require plenty of room, but each computer serves as a workstation which makes other types of group assignments easy and less

    While observing in Beth Johnston’s First Grade classroom at Eugene Field Elementary School, I have noticed some effective and ineffective classroom management practices that she uses while I have been in the classroom. One effective classroom management technique that I have observed is that Mrs. Johnston puts her student’s desks into groups of three or four. This is an effective technique because she puts her strong students with her not as strong students, which can help with the students who might need a little help staying on track with the lesson that they are supposed to get done. Also, Mrs. Johnston has changed the groups a couple of times since I have been observing in the classroom. This I believe is effective because the students…

    One the first day of school, a discussion will be held between the teacher and students to brainstorm common classroom procedures and rules. The teacher should write down all suggestions the students have on the board and what category they may fall under, i.e. rules/expectations or classroom procedures when coming into class. After students have completed suggesting rules and expectations, the teacher should then let students vote on what they feel are the 5-6 most effective rules and procedures for the classroom environment. Rules should be stated in plain English and positively worded. To build a sense of family in the classroom, the teacher can break the students into groups and create posters with the rules explicitly stated to post around the…

    Describe how you manage student behaviors. Good classroom management starts on the first day of school. It does not work if you start out by being the “nice and fun” teacher. It is essential that my students know on the first day of school that I will not tolerate disrespect and chaos. On the first day of school I went over my class rules with the students and pointed out where the class rules are posted if students ever need reference.…

    In terms of setting up and organizing a classroom, introducing and applying the rules comes before building relationships with the students because even though the relationship aspect is important, the students need to learn how to behave and follow the rules accordingly. Putting rules into place and building relationships with the students are equally important but, if I had to rank them, rules would have to come first. It is very important that the students know the rules of the classroom in the beginning because if they do not know the rules, the students automatically assume that there aren’t any rules and they can just walk all over the teacher. This is bad because the teacher ends up loses her authority as a higher figure. If a teacher…

    I think this is a great way to promote a student-centered classroom. I will design my lesson plans and give instruction starting with “I Do,” where I, the teacher, will first model what is expected from the lesson. In this first stage, I am doing most of the talking, and the students have an opportunity to observe and ask questions. Then, “We Do” allows time for the students and I to work together.…

    I believe that in order to have a successful classroom, a teacher must implement a variety of classroom management strategies to ensure that from September until June every single student gets the best education that he/she deserves. Even before the students arrive, one of the first things a teacher needs to do is make the classroom a warm, welcoming and safe place for each individual student. I want to make sure that from the first moment the students enter the classroom until the last moment before they leave that they will feel comfortable asking questions to both their peers and I. In addition, I would like my future students to feel like they can be themselves and at the same time accept their peers for who they are. When I do have…
