Effective Classroom Management in the Teaching Learning Process
by: Aireen V. Virtus
An educator plays a very important role in the teaching learning process in the contemporary era. One of their main roles is to motivate the learners and develop their ability and aspiration to learn. In addition, molds students with character and values not intelligence alone.
But, how can a teacher create a successful classroom management that serves as a tool for effective teaching learning?
According to Trevor (2017), give your students the power, teachers must create a list of norms with their students at the start the school year. Lead them through a discussion of what the class should look like and what behavior should be expected and record their thoughts on a poster board that can be hung on the wall for all to see. Then students create the rules and standards, and they can have ownership over them.
Another important factor that teacher must carry is celebrating hard work of students. Have something for students to work on at least once a month. Whatever it is, make it clear to students: the principle along the fruit behind hard work. That there is a reward for hard work and hard work is required to achieve that reward. Celebrations are great ways to motivation.
Finally, according to Muir (2017) to have an effective classroom management teacher must demonstrate the behavior you want to see from your students. The teacher must have a conversation with the students and listen. They must be a role model to his/her students. It doesn’t matter what the topic of conversation is, teacher sometimes is very intentional about modeling class norms in front of the students. We make eye contact while talking, do not interrupt each other, keep our phones in our pockets, respectfully disagree at certain moments, and show students what good discussion looks like. It’s one thing to tell students what expectations are, but showing them has much more power Putting together a consistent or organized plan rather that reacting to interruptive situations allows time for the teacher to respond thoughtfully when problems arise. Having time to think about a plan first establishes a foundation for values and beliefs about working with students and allows teachers to create a satisfying learning environment.
Summing it up, teachers must know who students are there and where these students are coming from.
