What do you think?
  • What is the general purpose of classroom management?
  • Beyond the content and curriculum taught in a class, what does a student learn from a well-managed classroom that s/he does not learn from a poorly managed classroom?
goals of classroom management

basic principles of classroom arrangement
Basic Principles of Classroom Arrangement

  • See all students
  • Make teaching materials easily accessible

in class activity
In-Class Activity
  • You are a teacher and plan to use the activities on the overhead in your classroom. Use the figure on p. 497 of your text to decide which classroom arrangement style to use for each activity. Be ready to explain why you chose this style to the rest of the class.
You have designed a problem-based learning activity for your class. You break the class down into groups. One group represents teachers, one group represents the school board, one group represents parents, and one group represents students. You want each group to work on its own to solve a problem that you posed.
  • You plan to have a Native American speaker come into class to share her experiences and history. You want all students to be attentive while she talks and to be able to ask questions and engage in a discussion.
You want students to work together to figure out how to drop an egg from the top of the school without breaking it.
  • You want students to pay attention to you while you read a story.
  • You want students to pay attention to you while you list the spelling words on the board.

The teacher is talking to the class about how plants grow. Juanita is whispering to her friend in the back of the room and then says (rather loudly) “This is so stupid. I’m going to live in the city so I’m never going to plant a garden. Who cares how plants grow.” The teacher ignores Juanita’s behavior and comments and continues talking.
It is Friday afternoon. A history teacher assigns a web-based project to his students and says that it will be due on Monday. One student raises her hand and reminds the teacher that they have a major project on the Civil War due on Tuesday. She suggests moving the due date of the web project so students can focus on their Civil War projects over the weekend. The teacher thinks about the student’s suggestion and then agrees to move the due date to the following Monday.
