My Behavior In Class Essay
Show MoreIn light of my School Experience (SE), I will be analysing, discussing and evaluating an aspect of classroom practice. The practice that I have chosen is ‘Behaviour Management’. Behaviour management plays a key role within the classroom and there are a number of techniques used by teachers on a day to day basis. I will look at these techniques in detail, analysing and evaluating them with the work of behaviour management authors and also taking into account my SE observations.
During my SE I was put into a Year 6 Class. Throughout the week the class was taught by 2 teachers who job shared. One was teacher was more vocal (Mrs. B), while the other used a lot more non-verbal cues/signals (Mrs. W).During my time at the school I was able to…show more content…
In an article written by Wagaman, J. (2008) it states:’ non-verbal techniques can help teachers gain control quickly and maintain control so that the focus of the classroom can be on learning instead of discipline’ the way the teacher uses non-verbal gestures in this instance really backed up by the article, as Mrs. W gains quick control of the class with the raising of the hand and utilises eye contact by glaring at students, which helps maintain the control. The glare or warning look at a student is really effective as its show the teachers intentions to the individual without disrupting the whole class, therefore keeping the focus on learning rather than discipline.
In Bill Rogers book he describes that the use of non-verbal gestures as ‘a positive form of communication....without intrusive fuss.’ (Rogers, 2007), during my SE observations I can see how this is defined, as Mrs. W used gestures such as putting her finger to her lips for silence, nodding her head for disapproval and a warning look for attention. These gesture are effective as she gets what she wants, whether it be silence or for the student to stop rocking on the chair without interrupting the whole class for one students misbehaviour, so there is no fuss or time wasting taking place. The gestures are also positive, as she is communicating to the student misbehaving without placing blame onto them, which can fuel up an argument..
Even though non-verbal gestures are effective there have
Classroom Behavior Essay
Each different classroom has different rules and behavior settings in their classrooms. The atmosphere of the classroom has a lot to do with student behavior. The setting of the classroom should be appealing to the teacher and in some cases the students. All teachers should let students know specific do's and don'ts of the classroom. Which behaviors are expected or desired and which will not be tolerated in the class, Ms. Colombara?s rules are fair and respectful to the class. They insist of no food and drinks in the classroom but sometimes the teacher bends the rules and lets students quickly munch down an orange or a small granola bar. During the classroom break stay in the class and under no circumstances leave the classroom without your student handbook with you. Absolutely no uses of swear words in the classroom but some are used when the class is doing readings from novels. Treat any teachers on call the same respect, as you would treat a regular staff at Sullivan Heights Secondary.
One of the rules Ms. Colombara likes to knag at kids is to not to eat or drink in the classroom. Nobody blames her because there could be some spills or crumbs on the ground and no teacher likes to go as a janitor at the end of the class and pick up junk left by the students in the classroom. The teacher also doesn?t like gum or any type of candy because sometime kids leave the gum underneath the desk and that is horrific and gross. Also some students like to put the gum on the ground and when a fellow student walks with over it, it sticks underneath their shoe and it?s a pain to clean up. She will only allow water only if it?s in a sealed bottle like a water bottle or a Gatorade® bottle, something that has a lid on it so if it does...
