Managing the Classroom Environment
Classroom Management is the set of strategies that teachers and students use to ensure a productive, harmonious learning environment to prevent disruptions in the learning process. (Rothstein-Fisch, Trumbull, 2008)
Do you ever struggle to hold students’ attention in class? Are your students easily distracted or at times disruptive to their peers? Teaching can be as exciting and fulfilling as it can be exhausting! Our course in Classroom Management is designed to help you navigate behavioural issues, manage conflict, and engage students in active learning – in order to create a healthier classroom environment.
With a deeper understanding of 21st-century education tools, you will find renewed enthusiasm for teaching – and your students for learning.
In order to better achieve their teaching goals, effective teachers should also act as effective classroom managers. In a successful classroom management, children and students needs are at the heart of the teaching process. Effective classroom management strategies and skills are essential even for the most talented teacher: learning simply cannot occur alongside misbehaviour and chaos. Instruction flourishes upon leading a classroom environment that promote a collaborative community, encouraging student voice, creativity, leadership, critical thinking and effective teamwork.
