  • Teaching to Tomorrow

    teaching to tomorrow
    Guest Post by Deia Sanders, Master Teacher and Instructional Coachteaching to tomorrow With all of the changes occurring in education, we’ve had some pushback from community members who feel as if we should teach our students the way we did when they were in school, and even educators who feel like the change is unnecessary or too much.

  • Effective Classroom Management

    Effective classroom management is one of the most difficult facets of teaching. That balance between amiable relationships with students and holding a disciplinary role in the classroom is a difficult line to straddle. Positive classroom atmospheres allow teachers to successfully relay lessons, and even more importantly, enhance a student’s ability to learn. To become an even more effective classroom manager, teachers need to be deliberate, developing strategies before they ever enter the classroom. This can be a strenuous task on top of the heavy load of a teacher’s work. Our blog is here to help and provides a few approaches for effective classroom management that are laid out in our Strategy of the Week section.In an effective classroom, nothing is more important than the student-teacher relationship; in fact, one study calls it the keystone for all other aspects of effective classroom management. This study describes how characteristics of this relationship are not based on the personality of the teacher, but specific teacher behaviors, including:
    • Exhibiting appropriate levels of influence for effective classroom management
    • Exhibiting appropriate levels of cooperation
    • Being aware of high-needs students
    Understanding how to fully invest in each kind of student (the class clown, the leader, the quiet one, the talker, etc.) will allow each pupil to feel acknowledged. This acknowledgement quickly leads to motivation.Although there are a growing number of strategies available, without an emphasized focus from the teacher on effective classroom management,the students are left with a less engaging experience in the classroom. If teachers immediately begin setting rules that are clear and direct, and students consistently abide by those rules, the classroom will continue to be an environment conducive for learning. Time spent preparing at the beginning of the year to manage the classroom effectively sets a foundation for unequivocal classroom learning and behavior.
