Effective classroom management begins when a teacher knows the particular types of disruptive behavior s/he wants to curb and the types of positive behavior s/he wants to promote. Rules need to be thoughtfully planned with positive reinforcement and feedback.
Rules refer to general expectations or standards for classroom behavior. The purpose is to create a strong expectation what is or is not acceptable. Some examples are:
• Well prepared material
• come to class on time
• Be respect to students when they are talking about their opinion
Ideally, you should start teaching your rules on the first day of school and continue reviewing them throughout the year putting a special emphasis on the first month.
Procedures refer to a specific activity and methods for accomplishing daily routines. Some examples are:
• policy for handing in late assignments
• policy for coming in late
• policy for working in groups
How should you go about teaching rules?
• State the rule clearly.
• Discuss why the rule is important
• Provide both positive and negative examples of the rule
• Don’t overdo this one, but discuss the consequences
• Do not make much rules (3-4 should be enough)
