Managing the Classroom
  • What are the differences between a
    procedure/routine and a rule?
  • A procedure is a method of how activities
    are to be done in the classroom/school.
  • A rule sets limits to guide behavior and
    provides consequences, positive or negative.

14
Carousel Establishing and Maintaining Routines
  • Chart paper is posted around the room with
    five routines that are important to
    establish and maintain in your classroom.
  • Stand in front of your designated poster
    with your assigned group.
  • When the instructor tells you to begin,
    discuss the routine with your group and
    write how you could establish this routine
    in your classroom.
  • After 1 minute, you will move with your
    group to the next poster to discuss and
    write about the next routine.

  • Rehearse.
  • Rehearse and practice the procedure.
  • Reinforce.
  • Reteach, rehearse, practice, and reinforce
    the procedure until it becomes a student
    habit or routine.

17
Procedures and Room Arrangement
  • An important component in successful
    classroom management is arranging the
    physical setting for teaching to support the
    procedures you have in your classroom.
  • Effective room arrangement can help you cope
    with the complex demands of teaching 20 to
    30 students in your classroom.

18
Five Keys to Effective Room Arrangement
  • Design your classroom to reflect your
    personality and instructional style and needs
    of the students.
  • Keep high traffic areas free of congestion.
  • Arrange students where they can be easily
    seen by the teacher.
  • Place frequently used teaching materials and
    student supplies where they are readily
    accessible.
  • Place displays and instructional materials
    where they can be easily seen by the
    students.

19
Room Arrangement
The most important feature of room arrangement is
not where the furniture goes, but, rather, where
it does not go. (Jones, 2000)
20
Additional Room Arrangements That Work!
21
Take - Away
  • On the back of your tri-fold, describe or
    draw your first seating arrangement for your
    classroom. Be sure to include the placement
    of your desk and at least one area
    designated for student supplies/materials or
    books.

22
  • Say what you mean, and mean
  • what you say.
  • Fred Jones

23
Common Misconceptions Concerning Classroom Rules
(Jones, 1996)
  • Students should know how to behave by this
    time.
  • Rules are announced.
  • If you do a good job with your rules at
    the beginning of the year, you will not
    have to deal with them later.
  • Teaching rules is a matter of being
    strict.
  • Students dislike classroom rules.
  • I have so much material to cover, I cant
    afford two weeks for rules.

24
Important Considerations
  • Rules should
  • Be specific, to the point, and consistent
    with established school rules.
  • Be written, using positive language.
  • Be limited to 3 - 5 in number.
  • Be posted with the consequences.

25
Take-Away
  • As you review the important considerations
    about rules, add two rules to the Managing
    My
  • Classroom section of your tri-fold that
    you will implement in your classroom.

26
Building Relationships
  • The quality of teacher-student relationships is
    the keystone for all other aspects of classroom
  • management.
  • (Marzano and Marzano, Dimensions of Learning)

27
Suggestions for Building Relationships
  • Address students by name.
  • Demonstrate civility (Say, Please, Thank
    you, Im sorry.).
  • Know your students as individuals.
  • Be approachable and capable but dont be a
    pal.
  • Reveal passion for your work and for life.
  • Smile!

28
Activities for Building Relationships
  • Introduce Yourself
  • All About Me Bags
  • Team Building Activities
  • Personal Interest Inventories
  • Others ????

29
Take Away
  • On the Building Relationships with Students
    section of your tri-fold, add two ways you
    will create relationships with the students
    in your classroom.

30
Todays Objective
  • Participants will examine various strategies
    to manage ones self and ones classroom in
    order to
  • develop a plan that establishes a safe and
    orderly learning environment.

31
Summary
  • Clearly define your role as a teacher and
    set boundaries.
  • Clearly define and teach classroom
    procedures, routines, and rules.
  • Model respect. Build positive relationships.
  • Monitor student behaviors and address
    inappropriate behavior promptly and
    consistently.
  • Plan effective lessons every day.

32
  • What you do on the first days of school
    will determine your success or failure for
    the rest of the school year.
  • You will either win or lose your class on
    the first days of school.
  • -Harry Wong
