EFFECTIVE CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT TIPS

STRATEGIES FOR CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
1.    PLANNING 

Planning gives structure to how things work in a classroom; from ice breaking to seating arrangements and further to assignments and grading. This also involves an understanding of student behaviours and relationships among classmates themselves. Teachers and students need to know what to expect from each other within the classrooms. The classroom management plan allows the teacher to focus on teaching along with engaging the students. After understanding this, all the objectives are identified and activities organised to accomplish the desired goals.


2.    ORGANISING 

Secondly, the classroom operations are key to organising the strategy. Ground rules, room layout, facilities, technology, heating, lighting and breaks are all key aspects to be considered.


3.    COMMUNICATION 

The most important part of an effective classroom management involves communication. It’s a linking process so it consists of exchanging ideas, messages, and information.  Therefore you must respect your students, repeat the message in different ways and remember the importance of nonverbal communication. Most importantly, keep checking the level of understanding of the student.


4.    MOTIVATION

The learning environment is critical, you need to encourage social interaction and motivation. Providing incentives to students is key to motivate, this can build up healthy competition in class with strong social interaction. The motivations vary, sometimes the students want personal attention whereas sometimes it’s just the appreciation or praise in general for the whole class. Prizes, leadership authority, prestige or group work can also motivate.


5.    MONITORING

Not everyone has the same level of understanding or learning capabilities. Hence, monitoring goes on at all times. Teachers should be active within this part and monitoring progress. Also teachers should keep a check on the implementation of the tasks. Monitoring helps to achieve discipline. There are times when the presence of the teacher in a supervisory role is enough. At the same time, monitoring assures the best performance from the learners.


The main purpose of classroom management is to gain control over the class by engaging students. This can be made possible by providing them a good learning environment. This can reduce the behaviour problems and maintain consistency with efficient use of resources.
