Effective Classroom Management: Large impact on students’ achievements
Students cannot learn in a chaotic, poorly managed classroom. It is very important that there is a balance between teacher actions that provide clear consequences for unacceptable behavior and teacher actions that recognize and reward acceptable behavior. For example, beginning the school year with a positive emphasis on management; arranging the room in a way conducive to effective management; and identifying and implementing rules and operating procedures.
The quality of teacher-student relationships is the keystone for all other aspects of classroom management. Further, research has shown that teachers who had high-quality relationships with their students had fewer discipline problems and rule violations than those who did not have high-quality relationships.
Effective teacher-student relationships have nothing to do with the teacher’s personality or even with whether the students view the teacher as a friend. Rather, the most effective teacher-student relationships are characterized by three specific teacher behaviors:
1. Exhibiting appropriate levels of dominance
2. Exhibiting appropriate levels of cooperation
3. Being aware of high-needs students.
School may be the only place where many students who face extreme challenges can get their needs addressed. The reality of today’s schools often demands that classroom teachers address these severe issues, even though this task is not always considered a part of their regular job.
The most effective classroom managers did not treat all students the same; they tended to employ different strategies with different types of students. An awareness of the five general categories of high-needs students and appropriate actions for each can help teachers build strong relationships with diverse students.
Don’t Leave Relationships to Chance
Teacher-student relationships provide an essential foundation for effective classroom management-and classroom management is a key to high student achievement. Teacher-student relationships should not be left to chance or dictated by the personalities of those involved. Instead, by using strategies supported by research, teachers can influence the dynamics of their classrooms and build strong teacher-student relationships that will support students’ learning.
