Often, teachers think that they tend to become like security guards. They need to pull young students apart almost each day. In class, they will need to deal with plenty of bad behaviours. However, there are common strategies that they can employ to become more successful teachers. With proper discipline, it won’t be necessary for teachers to tell problematic students to stay in the class. If there’s no discipline in the class, teachers may think that they are just one of the security staffs. The trickiest thing is to set up discipline from the day one. In the first day of school, students should be told to introduce themselves. Teachers should talk with each of the student, at least to ask where they live and things about their family.
By talking to students about trivial stuffs, students will start to establish respect with the teacher. Once the whole class feels the same way, the classroom will be much easier to control. For teachers, their jobs won’t be much easier if they also need to act like security staffs. As each week go by, teachers should get in the habit of stopping for 30 seconds here and there, to make sure that they can talk with as many as children. Teachers could also provide children a heads up if difficult parts of the class are coming up. Teachers may ask students about their difficulties in class. If students are still having problems with the learning sessions, they should be invited in the class.
Teachers also often find it difficult get the children quieter in the class and teachers should get in the habit of making the learning session more interesting. When trying to establish discipline in the class, teachers should also have good relationship with people who are in charge of discipline in the class. This will determine whether teachers can be effective in making the class become more disciplined. Teachers who regularly need to send students out of the class are actually having problem in establishing discipline in the class. Some difficult students may be sent out of the class too often that they no longer feel that it is a punishment. Eventually, it’s the teacher who could become frustrated with the whole process.
After ensuring that discipline is properly established in the classroom, they will have no further problems. When students do need to be sent to the office for the remainder of the class, this should be seen as the final form of punishment that teacher can do. Students should feel that it is the worst thing that can happen to them. In fact, students should feel embarrassed about it. So, it is important for teachers to no beat around the bush and be hard on students unnecessarily. We won’t give anyone a favour, if we give punishment too often or even provoke children to do bad behaviours. If we follow this advice, we should be able to obtain much better responses from students.
