"See, Say, Do" Teaching Fred Jones Classroom Management Theory (Teacher)— input, input, input, input—(Student) output Leads to Misbehavior in Class: 1. Cognitive overload
2. Students sit passively for too long
3. Teacher doesn't "work the crowd" Teacher input—student output—teacher input— student output— teacher input— student output Use this Model Instead! Helpless Handraising • Insufficient time for teachers to answer all requests for help
• Wasted student time
• High potential for misbehavior
• Perpetuation of student dependency Solutions: Organize seating so students are within easy reach of teacher
Post clear instructions and examples Teachers have 3 different "management styles": 1.Teaching well and rewarding well
2.Nagging, threatening, and punishing
3.Accepting what they can get by lowering their standards Incentives 1. Grandma's Rule
2. Student Responsibility
3. Preferred Activity Time (PAT)
4. Educational Value
6. Group Concern
7. Ease of Implementation
8. Omission Training
9. Backup Systems Are your incentives effective? Preventing the occurrence of behavior problems is the best way to manage them! Room Arrangement Classroom Rules Classroom Chores Opening Routines The room should be set up with generous walkways, for teachers to walk comfortably among the students. Integrating this with the knowledge we already know we also want to make sure that students are facing each other for cooperative learning and also have a clear view of the board and teachers desk. There should be a few general rules defining broad guidelines, standards, and expectations. Also specific rules should be established that describe procedures and routines and specifically what you want the students to do on a daily basis. Assign as many chores to students as possible, this encourages a sense of responsibility and ownership of the classroom.
Examples of this include:
attendance manger (to take daily attendance)
board controller (cleans board)
paper administrator (hands out papers)
Use these chores to your advantage, if you have a student who needs to get up and stretch their legs give them chores that allow this.
Change up every semester or how often you like. Stop wasting time!!!
“bell work” Teachers are most effective in setting limits using their body language, while saying nothing and taking no other action. Proper Breathing Eye Contact Physical Proximity Body Carriage Use your physical presence to maintain control
