Tips for Managing Your Classroom. Adapted from Chapter 4 of "What To Do With the Kid Who.... Developing Cooperation, Self-Discipline, and Responsibility in the Classroom, 2nd Edition." A SkyLight Guide.
This booklet provides proactive guidelines to help teachers manage the classroom environment. The tips explain how to establish procedures and create rules for behavior that will enable teachers to clarify their expectations for the students and reduce the number of classroom incidents that interfere with instruction. The guidelines are intended to help teachers empower their students to take responsibility for their behavior, their learning, and their classroom community. The first section, "Classroom Climate," explains obedience versus responsibility and teacher expectations of students. The second section, "Setting Up the Classroom," focuses on classroom structure and classroom procedures. The third section, "Classroom Management," looks at classroom rules, consequences, and behavior checklists. The fourth section, "A Cooperative Classroom," discusses the value of respect, coercive teacher behaviors, proactive teachers, and the principal as the last resort. (SM)
