Inappropriate and off-task behavior must be handled promptly to deter its continuation and to redirect behavior to learning. If a student does not respond to minor interventions or moderate interventions and behavior interrupts the classroom activities and interferes with learning, additional strategies should be in place to address this behavior. For some students who may not respond positively to the classroom plan and behavior support plans, teachers must become more systematic in interventions and more specific in documentation to secure additional support from the school or the district.
Creating a collaborative relationship with families is an important component of creating an effective learning community. Classroom Management The first impressions about a teacher and classroom management come from not only the interaction between the teacher and the student or the teacher and the parent, but from the way the teacher has organized the classroom and the students.
Personal Philosophy It is usually difficult for pre-service teachers to express philosophies of teaching and classroom management because pre-service teachers lack the experience and skills to understand how all of the elements of the classroom work together. Understanding and Addressing the Needs of Students in the Classroom Students are all different, and although classroom management plans are often written for most classroom settings, classroom management is also affected by individual student characteristics.
Arranging the Classroom Although we usually think of classroom management as the placement of furniture and desks for instruction, the classroom is also the setting for social interactions of making friends, learning to follow classroom procedures, and other administrative activities.
Classroom Procedures As in other life situations, whether the expectations are written or unspoken, once classroom procedures are established, they set the tone for how the classroom should operate to build a positive, safe, and secure learning environment.
Developing Classroom Expectations Expectations should clearly communicate that school is a place for learning and give students a structure to help them feel that school is a safe and a predictable place to learn. For instance, learning behavior theory helps in creating suitable instructional interventions for management of routine misbehaviors, increasing intrinsic and extrinsic behavior, and encouraging positive social interaction, self-motivation and active engagement.
An example of a situation that could benefit from the use of learning behavior theory is Carol's scenario who has some behavior issues. Some of Carol's major behavioral issues include talking a lot, especially off the subject matter, poor concentration when she thinks the lesson is boring, being distracted by her friend, Frankie, and the need to be reminded to get back to her work.
One of Carol's major problems in the classroom is talking a lot, mostly off topic or the subject matter, which results in her constant interruptions of the learning activities…… [Read More].
Personal Teacher Classroom Management. Classroom Management My classroom management theory is based on a constructivist approach to learning, which implies that there is a mutual responsibility between the learner and the instructor to move forward with the learning experience. My current position is in the First Grade, which at times can make this somewhat challenging.
In many ways, First Grade is a segue into a "real" school atmosphere: Often, the first few months of First Grade are transitions into expected behaviors and a more regimented school day, so classroom management can be challenging at times.
Overall, I have been using placement of students moving desks, etc. By in large, this has been quite effective for this level of student, most of whom…… [Read More]. Effective Classroom Management Techniques. The proposed classroom management technique seeks to foster democracy because a culture of responsibility and freedom is promoted in the learning environment. As a teacher, I have comfortably adapted to using this model because it gives my students equal opportunities of interacting and responding to classroom issues.
In the end, I can satisfy the needs of the majority. Since the environment is safe, their constitutional rights are guaranteed and rules applied are fair to all students. In such a classroom, all students are given equal opportunities especially in the formulation of programs and policies. Moreover, all students will be involved in the decision-making process because no discrimination exists in such a learning environment. In the current classroom, I ensure that all students…… [Read More].
Philosophy of Classroom Management My. Punishment should be equal, and no favoritism is employed. Maintaining a good classroom behavior is easier than trying to correct inappropriate behavior. Students who have established inappropriate behavior will resist any changes that a teacher attempts in order to correct their behavior. Therefore, it is better for a teacher to maintain order and discipline for the classroom at all times. Establishing clear guidelines and rules, which have consequences if broken will ensure that students maintain good behavior.
Parental influence is vital in maintaining discipline of the students. Parents will be kept in the know of their children behavior, and they can also administer disciplinary measures at home. Students should also be made to understand that disciplinary measures are undertaken to teach them and prepare them for the future. Good student behavior is vital as it protects other students and ensures…… [Read More].
Education the Key Elements of Classroom Management. Classroom Management Class room management holds extreme importance in the process of teaching. It is mandatory for a teacher to manage her class effectively in order to achieve her predetermined instructional goals. Indeed research into classroom management demonstrates that effective teachers are proactive about student behavior, and they involve students in the process of establishing and maintaining rules and routines'.
Strong, An effective instructional is dependent on various factors, and a properly managed classroom is definitely one of those factors. There is no way that a teacher can achieve her desire objective, if the process of teaching is taking place in a poorly managed classroom. A properly managed classroom along with attractive materials can definitely attract the attention of students and involve them in the process of learning.
Management of classroom is also important to avoid any unnecessary wastage…… [Read More]. Kindergarten Classroom Management The most effective classroom environment is one in which there is a sense of trust, advocacy for the student, engaging learning activities, and a sense of regular adventure.
Students should be encouraged to actualize, to participate, and to think of their classroom as a community. Because each individual is unique in their learning style, classroom success is based on flexibility and the willingness to adapt and evolve on a moment's notices -- the idea of fluid intuition taken to the nth degree. In its base form, it is the process of ensuring that the classroom lessons run smoothly and that learning is accomplished with a minimum of interruptions.

The production step in the path to observational learning with regard to effective classroom management will be easily found in the response of the class…… [Read More].
Journal Entry 1 Discourse on classroom management has shifted away from a disciplinarian and authoritarian model towards one more steeped in developmental psychology, social justice, and compassion. Teachers working within a classroom management paradigm that emphasizes trust and relationship building create far more effective educational environments.
Still, teachers do need to be armed with information and specific strategies. Effective classroom management requires sensitivity to issues like cultural diversity and other contextual variables, too. The authoritarian approach does not work with adolescent students, especially, requiring teachers to develop a flexible and creative approach to problem solving in the…… [Read More].
Child Classroom Management and the Escalating Child. This includes the non-compliant student, the combative student, the student who engages in inappropriate nonverbal communication, and the attention grabber whose behavior escalates. This last type student is the subject of this paper.
I will tell you about a child I observed first, then summarize an article on classroom management, and attempt to apply the principles in the article to the problem I observed with this child.
I visited a kindergarten in a nice, clean school in a working class neighborhood. The building was old but well-kept and spacious. The children walked to school from their homes. Most of the children were white with a few black and hispanics here and there. Classes were not overcrowded. This particular kindergarten with 17 students convened all day, not the usual morning or afternoon. The room was attractive, cheerful,…… [Read More].

Education - Classroom Management Relationship etween the Use of ehavior Contracts and Student's Ability to Stay on Task An Introduction to ehavioral Contracting In dealing with children, there are cases when a teacher encounters a child who does not behave in a normal way as other children do. For instance, a child may show constant inattentiveness to learning, or may demonstrate irresponsiveness to discipline.
A child with such disruptive behaviors oftentimes requires special attention and monitoring as part of a process of modifying an unpleasant behavior into an appropriate one. One strategy used to deal behavioral difficulties of a child is ehavioral Contracting. From Family Education Network online , the following is a definition of behavioral contracting. A behavioral contract is a written contract that specifies the child's behavioral obligations in meeting the terms of the contract and the teacher's or parent's obligations once the child has met his or her…… [Read More].
Successful classroom management is a central component of a productive educational environment. Without it, otherwise valuable learning activities can be rendered less effective or even fruitless. Teachers are acutely aware of this phenomenon and strive to maintain order in their classrooms.
While universal tactics, such as proximity, direct instruction, and the provision of high-interest activities, generally prevent potential disarray, there are moments when personalized techniques more successfully address management issues. The issue of inattentive students is a troublesome one for many teachers. The reasons for distractibility are numerous. However, by thoroughly investigating why a particular student cannot or will not pay attention in class, teachers can more quickly and accurately respond to this dilemma.
There is a subpopulation of gifted and talented students who seem to be perpetually lost during large portions of instructional activities.
Oftentimes the underlying cause is due to disorganization, rather than disinterest or boredom. These distracted…… [Read More]. Champs Classroom Management Champs the. Suggested rules for the classroom are: It is necessary to "identify critical content: Current Trends in Classroom Management.
Fitness Business Trends Three current trends in classroom management One recent trend in classroom management is a stress on defined goals and expectations. The popular classroom behavioral management program Wong's Pragmatic Theory "stresses that classroom procedures and rules are clarified at the very beginning of the school year. Teachers are to instruct students how to follow rules and procedures. The teacher prepares lessons about the rules and procedures so that he or she can thoroughly teach the kids about the classroom procedures and rules" Miller This stress upon predictability is also commensurate with such philosophies as behavioral theory, which emphasizes how student behavior can be shaped and reformed through goal-setting.
Students are given goals to strive for and then are rewarded for reaching those goals. For students with behavioral issues this can be useful given that it provides concrete, reward-based mechanisms for improvement. The need for greater adherence to…… [Read More]. Tips on Classroom Management Managing an Effective. Tips on Classroom Management Managing an effective learning process in a classroom is like driving on the street.
Sometimes you can speed up, but when the street is crowded, you can barely move at all. Many factors contribute to successful classroom management: Unfortunately, teachers cannot apply single management strategy to every class.
There are no classes that have the exact same profile when compared to each other. In the beginning of the term and continuously, teachers need to identify the students profile, their best performances, and their problems, to ensure equal achievement for everyone. Now, of course the 'traffic jam' needs the highlight. While teachers work hard to take control, why…… [Read More].
Evidence-Based Homework Policy Homework enables a student to better learn what is being taught in the classroom. It gives more experience of the subject principals. At the same time, homework and homework policies teach students social interaction skills, self-motivation, and active engagement skills and promote best practices in these areas. Homework policies work better based on grade levels of the student. Zalogwe's homework policy does promote social interaction. Human use tools from their culture, such as reading, writing, etc.
A teacher's collaboration with students to develop meaningful construction leads to higher thinking skills. This in turn, builds social interactions with others. Students learn communication skills that builds interactions with others.

Adult students may have more formed personality traits and a greater wealth of life experiences, but they are still capable of change and growth like younger students.
Furthermore, adults are often more willing partners in the learning process and better-equipped to engage in self-directed learning to realize a goal. Educators themselves are on a learning journey and "if educators see self-directed learning as the goal of their work with learners but not themselves, there is a discrepancy in their perspective.

Classrooms are diverse environments, characterized by students from varying backgrounds, and with varying needs and skill levels. It is from this diversity and the recognition of how it contributes to the richness of a learning environment that the concept of differentiated instruction arises. Through differentiated education, students representing diversity have the opportunity to learn in environments that promote inclusion, unity, and understanding.
An investigation into the effects of differentiated instructional curriculum for a fifth-grade science class demonstrated that both teachers and students reported a significantly higher degree of satisfaction with methods and materials used in differentiated instruction as opposed to typical instruction McCrea et al. Developing and putting into practice differentiated instruction curricula involves shifts in planning, execution, and assessments that require flexibility and…… [Read More].
Managing Behavior in the Classroom. Classroom Behavior Management Developing a classroom that takes cultural diversity into account begins with understanding one's own ethnocentrism, that a lot of what we take for granted pertains specifically to our own cultural upbringing. Children who come from other cultures -- and their parents -- may well have different ideas and ideals.
It is important to learn about the different cultures that are present in my classroom, as a starting point for understanding. A lot of developing an inclusive classroom involves listening to students and parents, so as to understand their cultures better, and how that pertains to the classroom. My plan would have specific Tier 1 rules, governing the basics of classroom behavior that are not subject to question on the basis of culture.
But there will also need to be more of an individualized Tier 2 approach, where some students from other cultures might receive special attention, or…… [Read More]. Management of Misbehavior in the. Traditionally, the behavior of the student disturbing the class would be stopped by the intervention of the teacher. Peace would be restored in the classroom and the incident would be discussed and punished later on during direct and face-to-face-to-face interactions between the student and the teacher.
Nevertheless, in few circumstances, it is possible for the misbehavior to be generated by positive intents and to generate positive outcomes, in such a case the intervention of the teacher being put off. Examples in this sense include those of a student trying to stimulate his classmates to enhance their performances at a sports activity or other curricular or extracurricular activity.
The teacher's ability to make the differences between the positive and negative types of misbehavior -- and to as such decide his intervention -- can only be obtained through the completion of the first step. Finally, at the third stage, the misbehavior would…… [Read More]. Legal and Ethical Application Bullying is a common social evil that requires the intervention of all school stakeholders. This study shows that bullying students should not be reprimanded negatively because it may accelerate the bullying trait.

I will ask each employee to work together for the good of the company and its survival in the e-business world. The purpose of the conference will then be to involve every employee in restructuring the company in a more effective way. To achieve this, I would divide the employees into smaller groups of 10 members or so each.
The first issue to address is the vision, mission and goals. Each group will be asked to come up with suggestions. The second step will be to identify the various actions to reach the goals, and the third step will be to more effectively restructure the company.
For the latter, the groups will be provided with a list of the divisions within the company. Management Practices and Responsibilities. I would seek to change the cognitions of the employee in order to change the affects and the behaviors.
The cognitions underlie the other two traits, so any change must start with the underlying values and beliefs. It is important for managers to have an understanding of organizational behavior because managers are responsible for guiding that behavior in directions that support the organization's objectives.
Knowledge of OB is more important at lower levels because those are the managers that must deal directly with the organization's rank and file. Higher level managers dedicate more time to strategy formulation and environmental analysis, which involves setting directions for the organization, but the lower level managers are the ones that must implement the strategies and that means dealing with the human elements of the organization.

Organizational Functions Herzberg's Two-Factor Theory is useful for raising awareness of the contribution between job challenge and responsibility in motivating employees toward higher productivity and employee retention.
It has also been useful in identifying and assessing customer satisfaction characteristics. Fishbein's Reasoned Action Theory is useful for explaining why particular behaviors are happening and the underlying causes of the behavior. Both theories are useful for identifying problem areas and planning actions for improvement in organizational behaviors.
According to Bolm, , the Two-factor Theory claims individual perception of satisfaction or dissatisfaction relates to discrete intrinsic and extrinsic variables where a variable can uniquely influence satisfaction or dissatisfaction, but not both. Motivator intrinsic factors include achievement, recognition, and responsibility where hygiene extrinsic factors include policy, status, and security.
Motivator factors, when present, increase job motivation and satisfaction, but, when not present, show no effect. Hygiene factors, when present, show no…… [Read More]. Previously, schools have dealt with such behaviors using punitive measures such as expulsion, or even law enforcement measures to attempt to discourage youth from behaving in an undesirable manner. These programs have had little or no effect on curbing behavior problems in schools.
Second Step and Boys Town are programs, which implement a positive approach to behavior management. These programs teach youth alternatives to violence and stress problem solving, coping, and conflict management.
Discussion focuses on the critical importance of respecting diversity, developing relationships, and recognizing behaviors as a form of communication. Common classroom management techniques are provided such as setting clear expectations and consistently enforcing rules and expectations. Furthermore, more robust classroom management theories are highlighted including choice theory, congruent communication, class meetings, and respectful classrooms.
Classroom management techniques refer to the strategies that teachers employ to effectively create safe, respectful classroom environments that reinforce positive behaviors and eliminate behaviors that negatively impact learning opportunities.
Management strategies range from specific "rules of thumb" recommended by educators such as ensuring expectations are clearly identified and responses are consistent to more comprehensive theories that emphasize human relationships and respect for diversity such as choice theory Glasser, Although there are common classroom management techniques used in most classrooms to create optimal learning opportunities for students, teachers often develop their own management systems from a variety of techniques that work well for their particular grade level or school population.
Management techniques may work well in some classrooms but not in others. Teachers need to be acutely aware of the needs of different student populations. No matter what techniques teachers employ, the behaviors they must respond to in the classroom setting generally are the same across grade levels and among different student demographics. When developing classroom management systems, teachers who recognize behavior as form of communication, respect diversity, and value human connections and relationships, find the most success in responding to common behavioral issues.
Their research pinpointed ten challenges including acting out, aggression, hyperactivity, poor social relationships, defiance, immaturity, poor academic achievement, poor attention span, and inadequate self concept Wilhite et al. Although this study was conducted nearly half a century ago, the challenges identified continue to pose problems for teachers today. The students indicated that disruptions, defiance, aggression, incomplete work and other miscellaneous behaviors are among the most common challenges experienced.
Their study further illuminated six discipline strategies that teachers most often employ to respond to the common challenges discussed: Although these are the most common responses, they are ineffective at managing classroom behavior and they create disrespectful and unsafe classroom environments. The challenges described above as well as the common responses teachers employ are representative of what occurs in many classrooms across the nation from Kindergarten through Grade
- Classroom Management Plan Establishing a well-organized plan for classroom management, at the beginning of the year, is essential for a peaceful and calm classroom that is conducive to instruction and learning for students with a variety of academic, social, and behavior needs.
A classroom management research paper should include an explication of the responsibilities of a teacher, and one of the most important is that of maintaining order in the classroom. The following information could be part of an education research paper.
Classroom Management essaysA classroom that promotes desired student behavior and facilitates instruction is arranged to encourage communication and interaction. For example, the large tables that seat up to five children promote maximum peer interactions during cooperative learning activities. Classroom Management Effective classroom management is the key to being an effective teacher, as well as in making sure learning is taking place. According to Robert Marzano in his book Classroom Management that Works, “ well-managed classrooms provide an environment in which teaching and learning can flourish” (, p. 1).
- Classroom Management Plan A. Theoretical Introduction Philosophy of classroom management My philosophy of classroom management is characterized by a teacher-centered approach. I believe that the teacher is the leader of the classroom and should determine the learning needs of the students. Classroom management is a set of procedures that structure the classroom so the students know what to do, how to do it, and when to do it in a classroom. (Wong, Wong, Rogers, & Brooks, ) A classroom with an effecitve classroom management plan is safe, predictable, and focused on learning.
