Classroom Management

Classroom management is a strategy that consists of several methods, like differentiated instruction and agile learning. It also takes into account the teachers’ attitude where he/she controls the classroom environment to maintain discipline, respect, consistency, and proximity.

Differentiated instruction means providing instructions as per individual needs. It creates a better learning experience for the parties concerned. Simultaneously, agile learning helps create an atmosphere of collaborative learning, teaching students how to break down the problems into bite-size issues and solve them. Agile learning is more into practical skills than theory.

Some classroom management techniques also include a block-scheduling system (varies from school to school). The system replaces two to three subjects having shorter hours with one subject for long hours. For example, there is a Science class of 30 minutes, six times a week. With block scheduling, teachers make it 1 hour 3 times a week. Block scheduling allows the teacher to complete the subject on time, and with the long hours, it doesn’t break the subject’s continuity.

While the world is also slowly shifting toward homeschooling, it is vital to apply classroom management for the home tutor. Making the corner of the home space look like a classroom. Management helps to bring in decorum.

The education supplement is a part of classroom management. College remediation is a part of the education supplement where students with low grades or deficient in particular subjects are sent to a class or a group, where they are helped in achieving better results and learn better.  

The classroom management also includes extrinsic motivation at the end of every week, where students with the highest scores are rewarded with extra grades or badges. It motivates them to study more. For example, Stanton High School’s classroom management follows an alternate day block schedule. Students take three topics of the science subject of 120 mins in each class, which comprises 60 mins theory and 60 mins practical sessions of biology, chemistry, and physics sessions
