Principles for SuccessfulClassroomManagement

Deal with disruptive behaviors but also manage to minimize off-task, non-disruptive behaviors,

Teach students to manage their own behavior,

Students learn to be on-task and engaged in the learning activities you have planned for them; however, it is students nature to be off-task than on-task.

Direct your instruction so that students know what is going to happen.

Monitor groups of students to check progress,

Move around the room so students have to pay attention more readily and focus attention on entire class,

Engage in low profile intervention of disruptions,

Make sure classroom is comfortable and safe,

Overplan your lessons to ensure you fill the period with learning activities,

Come to class prepared,

Show confidence in your teaching,

Learn student names as quickly as possible.

How to create a positive classroom atmosphere

How to Create a Positive Classroom Atmosphere

A positive atmosphere can make a classroom a more pleasant place to be and, in turn, a more effective, motivating place to learn. It's simple to do, and it can have positive results on the achievement of students.

Classroom management

  • Change the way you act, talk, teach, communicate with your students,

  • Encourage the students with positive feedback whenever possible,

  • Cover the walls of your classroom with positive messages,use bright, warm colorsin decorations and make wall displays educational,

  • Embed more positive words in everything that you write, read and talk about,

  • Create a positive word for the day and start a discussion on it and create a class dictionary of positive words, etc.


A teacher has witness:

When discipline problems occur, the teacher consistently takes action to suppress the misbehavior of exactly those students who instigated the problem,

When two discipline problems arise concurrently, the teacher deals with the most serious first,

When handling misbehavior make sure all students learn what is unacceptable about that behavior,

Getting angry or stressed does not reduce future misbehavior,

Deal with misbehavior without disrupting the learning activity.


refers to a teachers awareness of what is going on in theclassroom.

Proximity and body language

  • Be free to roam,

  • Avoid turning back to class,

  • Eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, physical proximity to students, and the way you carry yourself will communicate that you are in calm control of the class and mean to be taken seriously.

Proximity and Body Language

Cooperation through communication


  • Do not place labels (good or bad),

  • Do not get students hooked on praise,

  • Speak only to people when they are ready to listen,

    Praise the work and behavior not the students themselves,

    Verbalize descriptions of behaviors and never value judgments about individualsbut remain in control.

Cooperation through communication

A businesslike atmosphere

  • Take advantage of the new school year or term to set the stage for cooperation,

  • Be particularly prepared and organized,

  • Utilize a communication style thatestablishing non-threatening, comfortable environment,

  • Clearly establish expectations for conduct,

  • Establish an environment in which achieving specified learning goals takes priority over other concerns,

  • It is much easier to establish this environment from the beginning rather than later.

A Businesslike Atmosphere

Dealing with m isbehavior

Dealing with Misbehavior

Classroom management

  • Do not tolerate undesirable behaviors no matter what the excuse is,

  • Understanding the function of a behavior will help in knowing how to deal with that behavior,

  • Understanding why a person exhibits a behavior is no reason to tolerate it.

Classroom management

Reasons of Misbehavior

Classroom management

Many misbehaviors exhibited by students are responses to a behavior exhibited by the teacher,

Want to be left alone (i.e., disinterest or feelings of inadequacy)

Power seeking behavior

Attention seeking behavior

Revenge seeking behavior

Power seeking behavior

  • Power-seeking students attempt to provoke teachers into a struggle of wills.

  • Power-seeking behaviors are a child's way of seeking some control over his circumstances. Examples include debating or arguing, refusal to follow instructions, etc. Attempts at strict rule enforcement will likely result in more defiant behaviors. An effective strategy for dealing with power-seeking behaviors is to offer choices rather than demands.

  • In most cases, the teacher should direct attention to other members of the class.

Power Seeking Behavior

Attention seeking behavior

  • These are behaviors that result in attention from others, including negative attention such as being punished or ridiculed.

  • Examples of attention-seeking behaviors are whining, being silly, or interrupting others. If a behavior results in feelings of annoyance in others, it is likely an attention-seeking behavior.

  • Give attention to this student when he or she is on-task and cooperating.

  • Catch them being good! and let them know you caught them.

Attention Seeking Behavior

Revenge seeking behavior

Revenge Seeking Behavior

Revenge-seeking behaviors include bullying, vandalism or aggression against younger or weaker children and teachers.

Children exhibiting these behaviors are communicating that they feel unaccepted.

They have usually failed to get their needs met through any of the previous types of misbehavior.

They are seeking emotional responses from others, so responding in a controlledmanner is most effective. Indicate the rule they have violated, the consequences of breaking that rule, and then follow through with administering the consequences is essential. Finally, providing positive feedback for positive behavior will help ensure that those behaviors increase.

Types of supporting materials

Types of Supporting Materials


Facts are not in dispute and they provide powerful support for a speaker. However, it is essential that the speaker avoid using nonfactual information as fact. Playing fast and loose with the facts will destroy the speakers credibility.

Personal Experience

Your personal experiences, if used appropriately, can provide compelling support for your objectives. Describing your experiences with the topic lends a real-life perspective to an issue that cannot be achieved through the use of facts or statistical information.


Examples can help a speaker clarify complex concepts. Examples as supporting material offer the advantage of helping receivers visualize the meaning of the message. They are used to clarify, reinforce and personalize your ideas.


Stories are useful as supporting material to make a point and are, in essence, extended examples. Moreover, stories offer a memorable, entertaining method of conveying information.
