Discipline in the Classroom
My personal weakness as a teacher is to be too relaxed in discipline especially at the beginning, so the class can get out of hand quickly. I researched discipline in the classroom to improve my tactics as a teacher. In researching this topic I learned that if a teacher is prepared, consistent, firm, fair, and has high expectations they will have good classroom management. Initially, the teacher should have the rules written down and posted. By consistently enforcing the rules in fairness, this will lead to a peaceful learning environment where students know what the behavioral expectations are. Ideally you will warn the student before punishing them. An example discipline plan could be: first offense=verbal warning, second offense= detention with the teacher, third offense= referral. (2) Discipline should not be raised voices and confrontations but rather consistent application of established rules. It is always a good idea to start the very first class off with strict discipline as it is always easier to lighten up, than tighten up. The old adage: “Never smile until Christmas,” does have its merits. Fairness, firmness, and consistency are important when dealing with the students. Make sure all students are treated equally not
