Classroom Management Theories and Styles

If a teacher is not able to control the student behavior, time, and resources regarding the classroom, he can neither gain respect and honor among the students nor can he be able to properly teach the students what he intends to. Effective classroom management is a technique that acts as the foundation for any teacher’s success. It is because a teacher can only be able to effectively transfer the knowledge to the students if the classroom has a perfect learning environment. If the students create noise, show disrespect for the teachers, or get involved in disruptive activities in the classroom, a perfect learning environment can never be created.

Managing an ordered and disciplined classroom is of extreme importance for any teacher to be successful and effective. It is because a well-managed classroom always has a direct effect on a teacher’s ability to show a professional approach to teaching. A teacher should know what steps should be taken by him in order to create a learning environment in the classroom. Some important and major issues regarding classroom management include students’ misbehavior, students’ inattentiveness, students’ involvement in activities other than studies, and punctuality issue. There are a lot of ways through which a teacher can effectively manage the behaviors and activities of the students. These ways include checking the instructions if students misbehave, regularly monitoring the students, taking corrective measures in private, threats should never be made, care should be shown to the students, interacting with the students, and redirecting misbehavior instead of punishing the students.

The prime responsibility of a teacher in order to manage a class is that he should create awareness among the students about the reason for their presence in the classroom. The teachers should tell the students that they should be fully dedicated to the studies while in the classroom as it in their own benefit. The students should be told that there is a lot of time for them to get involved in extracurricular activities, but when they are in a classroom, they must concentrate on studies instead of thinking about other activities.
