THE ROLE OF CLASSROOM process of the organizing MANAGEMENT and conducting thr business of the

classroom relatively free of behaviour problem. It is involves the establishment and maintenance of the classroom environment so that educational goals can be accomplished. ENVIRONMENT Central to be more effective is the ability to provide a positive social and physical environment suitable to the learning process. physical space that are needed to be more concern: A. Arrange the floor space(student desks,teachers desk,cabinets) Store classroom materials in a good order. A. Textbooks,resources books Use wall space and bulletin boards.

DISCIPLINE Should not be view as punishment. The bestway to manage classroom is on creating and applying rules to control students behaviour based on to nurturing relationship and opportunities. The newer trend more emphasis on guiding students to become more proficient at self-discipline and less dependent on external control. Good classrooms managers design the classrooms environment for optimal learning,establish and maintain rules,get students to coorperate,effectively deal with problems,and use good communication strategies.




There are 3 approaches to classroom management: 1.The Self-Discipline Approach 2.The Instructional Approach 3.The Desist Approach

The Self-Discipline Approach

Built on the premise that students can be trusted to evaluate and change their actions,so their behavior are beneficial and appropriate to self and to the class. Teachers ability to build and establish working teacher-student relationships. There are 4 democratic classrooms management models: Reality therapy(William Glasser) Helps students take the responsibility for examining and solving their own problems. Teachers must guide their students to become more responsible individuals able to satisfy their needs in real world. Responsibility on the students,not the teacher. Classroom meetings are essential to identify the problems.

Teacher Effectivenss Training(TET)(Dr.Thomas Gordon) Stresses on the establishment of positive working relationships between teachers and students. Teachers can reduce disruptive student behavior by using clearer,less provocative communication. Teachers should identify who owns the problem when one develops in the learning environment.(teacher or student) If teacher owns the problem: I-message should be sent.(I-message tells the students how you feel about a problem situation and invites the students to change,to correct the situation. If I-message does not correct the problem,use solution through problem solving.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

6 steps of negotiation between teacher and student: Conflict is clearly determined. Possible solution are generated. Unacceptable are rejected. Remaining ideas are ranked and the best solution is selected. Determination of how to implement the selected solution so all parties are satisfied. Entails an assesment of how well the solutions works. Punishment is not recognized as viable option. If the student own the problem: Called active listening(or emphatic listening).Teacher should listen carefully and become counselor and supporter. Teacher should reflect back students point view to help them find the solution.

Inner Discipline(Barbara Coloso) Focus on helping children develop their own self-discipline by owning their mistakes,thinking through solutions,and correting their misdeeds while leaving their dignity intact. Treats kids with their respects and help them develop inner discipline that will help them to develop their ability to handle their own problems and learn their successes and mistakes. Teachers need to guide them from making any mistakes decision. Teacher fall into 3 categories: 1. Brickwall teacher-are rigid,use power and coercion to control others. 2. Jellyfish teacher-little structure,consistency,or guidance and putdowns,threats,and bribery to control students. 3. Backbone teacher-provide the support and structure necessary for students to behave creatively coorperatively,and responsibly which leads to inner discipline.

Beyond Discipline(Alfie Kohn) Approaches based on reward and punishment are only shortterm solutions to classroom problems. He contends that punishment teaches students that they will suffer when they caught misbehaving and rewards teach them how to respond positively only in order to win a prize or praise. Teacher should develops a sense of democratic classroom community that recognizes the needs and interest of both teachers and students. Classroom community will develop student to invoved in decision-making process and continually brought into making judgements,expressing opinion and working coorperatively.

The Instructional Approach

The basis of this approach is that well-planned and wellimplemented instruction will prevent most classroom problems. 2 models of classroom management: The Kounin model(Jacob Kounin) Better classroom managers because of skill in four areas: 1. Withitness-know what is going on in all parts of the classroom at all times. 2. Overlapping-handling 2 or more activities or groups at the same time. 3. Group focusing-involved all students in lesson 4. Movement management- an appropriate pace.

The Jonas Model(Frederick Jones) Wasted instructional times can be reclaimed when teachers correctly implement 4 strategies: 1. Limit setting-establishment of classroom boundaries for appropriate behaviour. 2. Good body language-physical mannerisms that tend to get students back to work,the most effectively of which are physical proximity to students,direct eye contact,body position,facial expression,and tone of voice. 3. Incentive system-to keep students on task and get them to complete their work. 4. Giving help efficiency-related to time on task.

The Desist Approach

It gives teacher full responsibilty for regulating the classroom. It gives teacher power to deal forcefully and quickly misbehaviour,they can view as power system. 2 common desist models: Assertive Discipline(Lee and Marlene Canter) Teacher have a basic right to require decent behavior in the classroom and advocates assertive discipline,which calls for assertive teacher. Assertive teacher : i. Clearly and firmly communicate needs ii. Follow up their words with appropriate actions iii.Respond to students in ways that maximize compliance but in no way violate the best interest of students. iv. Take charge in classroom in a calm yet forceful way. v. They do not tolerate improper behavior that interupts learning.

vi. Establish rules along with consequences for proper behavior and improper behavior. Behavior modification(B.F. Skinner) It is an approach that evolves the assumption that students will change their behavior to receive definite rewards. There are 4 general categories of consequences: 1. Positive reinforcement-maintianing or increasing the occurrence of a desired student behavior.rewards.(praise,grade) 2. Negative reinforcement-involves the removal of an undesired stimulus.(weekend homework,no visiting) 3. Punishment I-involves the application of some undesirable stimulus.(private reprimand,isolation,or a trip to the principal office) 4. Punishment II-removal of a desired stimulus or the withholding of an anticipated positive stimulus.(exclusion from a school film,or loss of computer timefor a week.

Causes of Misbehavior
Students misbehavior in classroom is highly influenced by forces and pressures inside and outside of classroom. Main causes of misbehavior
