The effectiveness of the learning system in a school depends on the relationship between teachers and students. The quality of knowledge students receive relies on lesson quality, mutual relationships, and classroom environment. Therefore, successful learning in school demands effective classroom management.

Effective classroom management techniques enable teachers and schools to create and maintain the right behaviour of students in classroom settings. Additionally, the purpose of implementing classroom management is to strengthen social behaviour and escalate student academic engagement.

“Teaching is not simply telling people what to believe and do.” ― Donovan L. Graham.

Effective Classroom Management - A Panacea for Enhancing Students Learning Experience

Effective classroom management is when teachers can seamlessly control their classroom through strategies and techniques that boost positive student learning and behaviour. The practice of classroom management makes a classroom an excellent learning environment where students can engage with their studies to the best of their ability.

Effectively managing a classroom takes time and varies with the teachers’ personalities and preferred teaching styles. It is also influenced by the subject and age group being taught. In fact, there are several classroom management strategies, just as there are many different approaches to pedagogy.

What is Effective Classroom Management?

Classroom management is one of the biggest challenges many teachers confront, especially at the beginning of their careers. After all, it is just not easy to keep so many kids engaged, interested, and focused.

Classroom management refers to a broad array of skills and techniques implemented by teachers to facilitate optimal conditions for learning. It involves preventing and intervening in disruptive behaviours. However, it is also about building the appropriate environment, setting clear expectations, and thoughtfully choosing learning materials and activities.

An effectively managed classroom is one that runs evenly and where both students and teacher can be their best selves. It is a structured space for learning with minimal confusion. There are clear classroom norms and consequences that maintain a positive learning environment. Students are more organised, attentive, focused, on-task, and productive in an effectively managed classroom.

How to Get Classroom Management Right?

  • Have a clear plan and expectations: Before anything else, have a rigid lesson plan and clear expectations in place. Also, think about ways you can incorporate it into your teaching to create a safe, productive, and reliable space for students to learn.
  • Build relationships with students: get to know them, their interests and dreams for the future, and their strengths and challenges. A good relationship between a teacher and a student builds trust, which is the key to successful classroom management.
  • Find ways to make the classroom interesting: Jokes and kindness can help to go a long way.
  • Stay cool and focused: Begin every day with ease and keep your students on task with coolness.
