Beyond Rules and Consequences for Classroom Management. Fastback 401.
Critical factors that influence the environment for learning include the teacher's interpersonal skills--including how expectations, rules, and consequences are communicated--and the student's sense of belonging in the classroom. This pamphlet provides a process for developing a personalized classroom program that will address classroom management in ways that meet the learning needs of students. The first section, "Creating Positive Expectations," looks at setting goals, communicating expectations, teacher feedback, developing rules and consequences, and positive intervention. The second section discusses interpersonal skills of effective teachers as suggested by a survey of 25 experienced teachers. The third section, "Developing a Sense of Community," discusses the structure of the physical classroom environment and procedures that involve teachers and students in developoing a sense of community. In the last section, two case studies are provided as discussion starters on creating constructive learning environments. (ND)
