Classroom Management and Organization Techniques.
Corby, Elda H.
Informal and formal observations of a second grade classroom of 25 students indicated that students did not remain on task for any substantial length of time when given an assignment, had poor work habits, and were lacking in discipline. The classroom teacher spent most of her time disciplining students in a negative manner for lack of on-task performance; students were also being disciplined for unfinished work and lack of ability to complete a task. Students, additionally, were either over or under placed in their assigned reading and math groups, and the classroom teacher knew this was so. Therefore, a practicum was designed and implemented by a primary specialist to remedy the situation. The practicum was conducted using the following components: observing, testing, writing tests, placing students, writing specific plans, logging information, and conducting conferences. After observation and inservice on testing procedures, students were placed according to their ability. The classroom teacher began to use methods that motivated students to stay on task for a reasonable amount of time. Appendices and tables include data on observations, sample record sheets for conferences, letters to teachers and parents, logs, and test results. (Author/RH)
