...WHAT IS CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT?   Classroom management, as applied to teaching, involves everything that a teacher must do to carry out his/her teaching objectives.  It includes preparation of plans and materials, structuring of activities into time blocks, direct teaching of skills and subject matter, grouping   of  pupils to provide for the most efficient use of teacher and pupil time, plans for transition periods--changing from one activity to another or from one place to another--pupil involvement and motivation, and adequate control of pupil behavior. Good classroom management implies not only that the teacher has elicited the cooperation of the students in minimizing misconduct and can intervene effectively when misconduct occurs, but also that worthwhile academic activities are occurring more or less continuously and that the classroom management system as a whole (which includes, but is not limited to, the teacher's disciplinary interventions) is designed to maximize student engagement in those activities, not merely to minimize misconduct. What do good classroom managers do? |   | * They have a set of routines and procedures that they teach students. * They maximize the classroom’s physical space to facilitate easy teacher movement and proximity, as well as student movement and transitions. * They begin the year with a set of class rules or guidelines that they explicitly teach, monitor, and enforce. * They plan well (they don’t wing it). *......

...Something that will pique their interest in the topic and make them want to learn more. For the purposes of this paper, the concept at hand is the interdependence within ecosystems. The ecosystem the students will be studying is saltwater marshes, plants and animals. Teaching this concept in the classroom will be most successful using a combination of a Jigsaw approach coupled with a STAD (student team achievement divisions) approach. The key elements of both the Jigsaw cooperative learning method and the STAD method include breaking students into racially, socio-economically, gender and differing ability groups. In terms of the assignment of salt water marshes, there are three main areas of information to be assimilated: tidal changes, plants and animals. The initial step, in accordance with the STAD model, would be to provide a basic lecture of saltwater marshes, covering facts and disseminating information on each of the three main topic areas. This could include a basic lecture/presentation that included pictures, written information, and other various forms of initial information on the subject. Following the JIGSAW model and supposing a group of 30 students in a classroom, the process would then include breaking students into ten diverse groups, assigning each group of ten one of the three areas of research: tidal changes, plant life and animals. In accordance with the Jigsaw method, each group would then go into their “expert” group and study their assigned......

...themes are individual learning, flexibility in the curriculum, the centrality of play in children's learning, the use of the environment, learning by discovery and the importance of the evaluation of children's progress - teachers should 'not assume that only what is measurable is valuable.' Because Piaget's theory is based upon biological maturation and stages the notion of 'readiness' important. Readiness concerns when certain information or concepts should be taught. According to Piaget's theory children should not be taught certain concepts until they have reached the appropriate stage cognitive development. Within the classroom learning should be student centred a accomplished through active discovery learning. The role of the teacher is to facilitate learning, rather than direct tuition. Therefore teachers should encourage the following within the classroom: o Focus on the process of learning, rather than the end product of it. o Using active methods that require rediscovering or reconstructing "truths". o Using collaborative, as well as individual activities (so children can learn from each other). o Devising situations that present useful problems, and create disequilibrium in the child. o Evaluate the level of the child's development, so suitable tasks can be set. Evaluation of Piaget's Theory Strengths * The influence of Piaget’s ideas in developmental psychology has been enormous. He changed how people viewed the child’s world and their methods of......

Flipping a Classroom

...The Flipped Classroom The Flipped Classroom A concept that has become popular is the "flipped classroom." A flipped classroom is a form of learning in which students watch a short video clip as a homework assignment at their own pace. The student can communicate with teachers and peers through online discussions about anything they may not understand. These videos are created by teacher, they are 5-7 minutes long providing information on the idea that a student would usually learn in the classroom. This allows the teachers to act as a coach or advisor during class, encouraging students to work collaboratively to complete activity. In the video, Katie Gimbar stated that the students are able to "pause, rewind, and rewatch" the video for a better understanding (Gimbar, 2011). This approach will lead to positive outcomes in the classroom. The idea of the flipped classroom is to allow more time for active learning, instead of the traditional lecture. "Educational technology and activity learning are two components of the flipped classroom. They both influence student learning environment in fundamental ways" (Strayer, 2011). The idea of a flipped classroom seems fairly easy. The teacher will need to have access to technology in order to record and capture the lesson they want to teach. The first step is choosing a screen casting software, such as Jing or Camtasia. This software will capture anything on you see on your computer screen, as a video, and lets you share it......

...Classroom Management Philosophy ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------          The utmost valuable aspect that creates a good learning atmosphere is classroom management. Without a classroom that is organized and disciplined, learning is close to unmanageable. This is why I believe that it is crucial that a teacher begins a classroom with a well thought out management plan. I think that this plan should just provide a base for the classroom, and should be structured around anticipation, admiration, and stability.             Although discipline problems are expected in any classroom, prevention through set rules and an appealing curriculum can compensate many distractions in the learning environment. I think that as a teacher, an initial discussion of classroom rules and making your expectations clear from the beginning can help students understand what you want from them. Although I don’t think it is necessary to bombard students on the first day with regulations and state what isn’t allowed in the class, I think it’s key to stress what you want out of the class and that the classroom should be a positive learning community for all students.             Additionally, clear and concise rules, good teaching strategies can also help inhibit disruptions in a classroom. When students are engaged in motivating doings and enjoy being in class, there is less chance for outbreaks that disturb the...

Classroom Diversity

...Diversified Students Introduction Vernon-Feagans, Kainz, Amendum, Ginsberg, Wood, and Bock (2012) assert that: looking at an American classroom today, significant changes are notable. The number of students coming from different linguistic backgrounds and cultures has tremendously increased in most public schools. This has posed challenges to classroom a teacher as the bulk of teaching has increased with the accommodation of linguistic and culture diversified students (Gilbert, Compton, Fuchs, Fuchs, Bouton, Barquero and Cho, 2013). This therefore directly affects the performance of such a classroom in respect to methods of teaching applied. Henry, Castek, OʼByrne and Zawilinski (2012) states that: for an efficient and effective teaching of such a classroom, individual needs of each student in such a class need to be successfully met. This then calls for a thorough research on the incorporation of such diversity with an aim of improving on classroom performance (Utley, 2011). This research article being based on this need tries to give precise and easy implementable strategies to help in such a situation. It seeks to assist the teaching fraternity of diversified institutions manage to deliver effectively and with ease on their core mandate. This paper contains strategies for improving on performance in a linguistically diversified classroom. The outline of these pillars appear in this sequential order: acknowledgement of the diversity, connection with the students,......

Classroom Management

...Classroom Management Procedure/ Routines Paper Classroom management is the most essential key to a successful learning environment in the classroom. When effective classroom management strategies are not implemented you take away learning time from your students. There are many important elements to have a productive, self- sufficient classroom. One of the most important elements is establishing procedures and routines in your class. According to Harry Wong, the teacher is the decisive element in the classroom. Therefore, it is up to the teacher to establish discipline and procedures in the classroom to have an effective classroom. The most important element of establishing discipline in your classroom is establishing a discipline plan. A discipline plan is composed of three things; rules, consequences, and rewards. The rules must only contain 3-5 rules, no more than 5. Harry Wong explains that when we begin to give too many rules it becomes a dare to the students to break them. Having a plan is very important, when a teacher does not have a plan it will resort to yelling. Harry Wong states, “ If you don’t have a plan, than you are planning to fail.” According to Harry Wong the number one problem in the classroom is not the discipline, it is the lack of procedures and routines. Establishing Procedures and routines will allow your classroom to be a productive self-sufficient classroom. Therefore, in order to have discipline in a classroom you must have procedures......

...Classroom Design In order to have a successful classroom, it is important to have a plan on how you want to layout your classroom. There are certain elements that I believe are important to have in an elementary classroom in order to produce life-long learners. Students spend a lot of time in their classroom which is why I find it important for a teacher to plan the layout and make it their second home. My classroom will have resources and bulletin boards in order to help students master the required skills they need. One thing that I find works best in most classrooms is having the students placed in groups as I believe that students can learn a lot from one another. I would have my classroom in groups of four with four to five students, depending on class size. I believe that it is important to have a classroom rug because it is a meeting area where you can read to students, teach mini-lessons for readers and writers workshop and many other things. The classroom rug should be near the smartboard as many lessons now include technology to enhance the learning of the students. Along the walls of my classroom there will be bookshelves that will include different levels of books depending on the needs of the students. I think it is important to have a variety of books in order for students to develop a love for reading. Also, I would have a white board on my walls to teach whole-group lessons. In addition, on the wall of the back of my classroom would be a computer......
