Classroom Management and the Socially Disadvantaged.
Ogletree, Earl
Because of their deficits in academic attainments and different cultural styles, socially disadvantaged children create more potential than other children for classroom management problems. To improve classroom management, teachers should maintain a clean room and train their students to enter that room in an orderly fashion. In dealing with their students, teachers should learn their names, be impartial, be clear in their instructions, require their students to be accountable in their homework assignments, and aim at full class participation. In the matter of discipline, the effective teacher, always taking note of undercurrents of behavior and employing high interest activities to maintain order, will develop a rapport with students characterized by friendliness, flexibility, and consistency with discipline. The good teacher, eschewing threats and the temptation to frequently call in outside help, will work with individual offenders and will avoid taking misbehavior personally. (Author/WP)
