It is hard to sometimes figure out what we truly want to learn about. We so often times have a hard time finding out what our passions are because we are never allowed to explore the options.
I think that something I really want to learn before I graduate is how to deal with discipline in the classroom. So much has changed since I was a child in school and there are so many regulations that we now have to follow I am not sure how to keep my class in order. I want to learn about this so that I can keep distracting students under control so that all of my students can benefit from what I teach.
This is so important to me to really understand different ways to have classroom management because I love helping my students and if I have a classroom that is constantly out of control then I won’t be able to do what I love to do and my students will be hindered by me not being informed. I want to know what experienced teachers have done in the past to manage their classrooms. How they have gotten their students motivated to learn.
I was thinking so hard about what I wanted my “freedom learning project” to be on and this is one topic that kept coming back into my mind over and over again. I think it has came back up because I have been constantly worried about how I am going to manage my classroom someday. I think sometimes parents can be just has hard to manage as the students can be. I want to learn how to deal with tough situations. I want to prepared to be the best teacher that I possible can be.
Now, many of people reading this post may think how can this be fun to learn about. Well, I think it will be fun to learn about different classroom management styles. I think that I can go through and find out what would fit best for my style and go from there. It will also be fun because I will feel at ease for my first year of teaching. I know that each class is different but I would still like to be prepared for anything.
Teaching is my passion. I love working with kids and see the “light bulb”come on in their mind when they understand something. I want to learn about different classroom management styles for my independent learning project. Learning should be fun, I think this topic will be fun and interesting!
