Six Tips For Better Classroom Management

    Classroom Management involves various aspects of psychology, communication skills, people skills, etc. Thus, training in classroom management helps a teacher in understanding the nuance of classroom teaching and the various disruptions one might face during the classes.

    Reward your students: Rewards are a way of motivation. Rewarding in various ways for various tasks make them concentrate and try harder. Rewards make them feel special about themselves.

    Appreciate the efforts of your students:
    If even one student in the class is putting in efforts, appreciate them. Appreciation gives the students a feel-good factor and motivates them to do better over and over. This also encourages other students to put in their best efforts.

    Be inclusive: Always be inclusive in the class. In class activities, include every student. If someone is unreceptive or disinterested involve them too in fun ways.

    Focus on the disruptive students: The students who interrupt the class the most should be given more attention.

    Be friendly: It is important to be friendly with the students in order to get them stay focused in the class. A friendly teacher is always the best friend of a student.

    Note the thread tags:

    ... together with the claim on the OP's profile that he/she is a 'Trainer in a reputed educational Institution'.

    The O/P: what an arrogant n*b. The six ways are:

    a) Smoke weed so you don't care
    b) Drink dry red wine - at least half a bottle a night
    c) Have a sick day regularly but be careful of patterns
    e) Grow a dumb haircut and rap like that highly irritating Mr Jackson
    f) Avoid reading anonymous posts on behaviour
    d) Get your life in order, like a well-ordered list.

    This post is intended for.... ?
    Maybe it would be a good idea OP to outline why you posted this. Yes some good points but maybe considering how many experienced teachers post on here it might have been a better idea to put.... "These are a few of my ideas and it would be great if other people here could add to these to try to help people new to teaching"

    Just a thought.

    It's not even that. It's clickbait, carefully read what the OP has actually written in their last two points.

    I suppose it's worked 6 responses so far.

    I disagree, focus on the motivated and students doing their best. These are the ones that always get left out but will return the best results for your and their efforts.

    The disruptive ones are seeking attention and succeeding by getting it, They will become only become more disruptive the more attention they get. Ignore them as best you can without letting them get away with any "crimes". But pay them attention if they get the message and start to comply.

    Suspect advice, Its important to be approachable and having good relations with students and whilst being friendly works for some teachers it is not essential for all.

    However "A friendly teacher should never be the best friend of a student". The best friend of a student should be someone their own age whom they can share kicking a ball around with, swapping Instagram photos with, drink White Lightening or whatever kids do these days,

    I actually like my students to be disinterested.

    I respect your thought!! However, as a teacher it is important to find out why the student is being disruptive in class. There can be 'n' number of reason behind it. May be the class is not interesting enough, may be the student is unable to understand the core idea of the topic, can be he/she is a student of above/below intelligence. For one he already understood it and finding no more interest in class and for the other he is a slow learner and the pace of the class is too fast for him. These are few crucial areas where the teacher should focus and try to find out the reason behind teh disruption.

    However, if these are not any of the concern in such cases you may consider that the student is trying to seek attention and then your argument is correct.

    Sorry I missed out the sixth point. Here it is..

    Be a good listener: Always be a good and attentive listener and answer their queries. Listen to what they have to say in an unbiased manner and give your opinion accordingly.

    That's great but at times discipline is required and it also helps the students to be define them.

    I don't think you understand the meaning of "disinterested".

    And I do not understand the meaning of "it also helps the students to be define them"

    Maybe you can enlighten me?
