Classroom Management

In teaching every educator encounter different issues or difficulties of students and how to deal with them takes a lot of effort, learning and experiences.

What can we do if one or some of our students are discouraging the authority, leaving the class repeatedly for some reasons, appearing not to pay attention during class, smell strongly of body odor, verbally or physically threatening to you, practice annoying and/or disruptive behaviors, monopolizing the conversation, fall asleep in class, repeatedly tardy, refuse to participate in class discussions or group work, sharing or copying work, submit a plagiarized paper, sit in the back and chat with a classmate, or just plain disrespectful and others? Aside from the issues of student’s behavior, how to achieve a good classroom environment?

The answer is classroom management. Classroom management implies an ability to deliver all the items that the teacher has planned effectively and systematically, without any deviation from the goal, but at the same time, leaving some scope for flexibility. (by Dr Sujata Rana, Associate Professor, Department of English, CRM Jat College,Hisar). Classroom management could be different from different educators. But the establishment of this classroom management have these goals for most of the instructors; first, to develop the best learning environment that possible to every student; second, to expand the student responsibility and self – directive.

It is important that from the first meeting you have set your rules and requirements, syllabus is the best tool to provide the visibility of these and have to be given to every student for a particular course. Following the real time schedule, keeping the discussions and the activities aligned with the learning objectives. For effective classroom management it must be aligned with instructional goals and activities.  The class can be manage in a better and rewarding way through careful preparation and selection of the tasks, clear transmission of guidelines and instructions and adequate monitoring.

Through this management, all will be settle since it implies rules/regulations/policies that will probably solve all the issues within the class and therefore will have a smooth and good interaction in the class.
