Things to Remember when Arranging Your Room
The classroom should be arranged to promote efficient learning and minimize behavior problems.
Students must be able to see and hear instruction and have ample access to learning materials.
The teacher should be able to easily monitor students and provide feedback.
The classroom should also be flexible to allow for different types of learning activities.

Establishing Classroom Climate

To create the climate you want for your classroom, you must first decide the look and feel of the room.

Answer the Following Questions:
Can you tolerate noise? Must the room always be quiet? Or can you put up with a mix of noise and quiet, depending on the learning activity?
Must your classroom be neat (orderly rows, clean boards, limited clutter) or can you stand it messy?
What do you want your desk and surroundings to say about you?
Bulletin Boards
Purpose of Bulletin Boards
A bulletin board may be used for a variety of reasons: displaying student work, serving as an activity board for students, posting rules, posting announcements, or decorating the classroom.

Establishing Discipline

Be consistent in what you say and what you do.
Find an effective means of quieting students. Instead of saying "Shhh," consider using a subtle strategy such as dimming the lights or playing classical music.
Avoid using threats to control the class. If you do use a threat, be prepared to carry it out.
Establishing Discipline (Cont’d.)
Nip behavior problems in the bud. Intervene quickly when students are behaving inappropriately.
Whenever possible, reprimand a student one-on-one instead of across the room, in front of the whole class.
Don't permit students to be inattentive.
Use appropriate punishment for classroom misbehavior.
Rules concern how students BEHAVE.

Procedures concern how things ARE DONE.
Difference Between Rules and Procedures

Communicating with Parents
Instructional Strategies
Activities and their Retention Rates
Vary Your Delivery
Modulate your voice. Avoid speaking too fast or in a high-pitched tone.
Use a voice level that can be heard easily in the back of the room.
Be animated in your delivery. Using facial expressions and body language can be very effective in teaching.
Move around. Don't stand or sit too long in one place.

Apply Proven Teaching Techniques
Vary your teaching strategies or combination of strategies during the week.
Use three or more seconds of "wait-time" after asking a content question.
Balance the time you spend with one student or group and monitoring the entire class.
Do appropriate comprehension checks -- as you are teaching -- to see if students understand the content.
Collaborate & Observe Other Teachers
Time Management
Set long-term goals and keep them in mind as you do your daily planning.
Quickly learn and use student names.
Gain students' attention before beginning a new activity. Don't try to talk over student noise.
Give students their next assignment before you collect or return papers.
Don't interrupt students while they are on task.
Make certain the students clean up before leaving.
Edit any materials you write for students. On tests be sure to avoid using poorly worded, ambiguous questions.
Don't introduce too many topics simultaneously. Think through the delivery of content before you get to the classroom.
Think through directions you will give students (write them down, if that helps, before giving them verbally). Directions should be brief, and as the word implies, direct.
Don't stretch out the time for an activity.
Be consistent in what you say and what you do.
