This week I have been learning so much about my independent learning project. I have learned so many key things that I want to apply to my classroom in the future. However, what I found this week is what I am excited to share about. I found that there are six tips that every teacher should have in their classrooms. They are take charge of your class, focus on the disruptive students, let students chose their seats, give incentives to do their best on assignments, keep an eye on your students, and establish consequences for misbehaving. As I read through each of these they totally clicked for me. I really loved the detail under each of these headings that this article had to offer. For more in depth details click here.
As I keep researching I have found that there is so much more that goes into classroom management than I have ever thought. I guess that for me it is hard to pick out what to use in the classroom and what I shouldn’t use. Should I try things and then if they don’t work then try others? Do I adapt to the class or the situations? Or do I stay with what I start with and enforce it hard? To me it is so hard to pick these sorts of things out because children today do not respect authority like they use to. At least in my experience students don’t.
As I did further into my research I get more excited to pick out the classroom management style that fits me best. I think that this weeks and last week articles that I have found have been a great start for me. However, there is still more detail that I would like to find out about what I have found so far. I think that I need to keep digging in order to have a well ran classroom
