Classroom Discipline Tips for the Effective Trainer Discipline in the classroom is easier said than done. teachers encounter this with every class that they've had and it is inevitable. Students have different motivations, and different approaches that are appropriate for them to learn, not to mention different characteristics with different personalities. However, there is one general truth about this situation. If the students do not like the teacher and what is being taught, they won't positively respond to the lesson being taught to them. This concern brings forth your ability to create interesting lesson plans and to effectively manage your class. Below are some tips on how to instill discipline inside the classroom. Set Expectations from the Start Students should know your expectations from them as students and as members of the class. This has to be communicated clearly from the start to create the image of consistency that is essential to the establishment of discipline inside the classroom. There are two types of expectations that need to be thoroughly explained. They are the classroom expectations (house rules) and lesson expectations (student
output). The former should be established from the first day of school and should be referred to as needed. The latter should be established from the beginning of the lesson and should be used as the reference for giving feedback to your students. Establish a fair and consistent authority figure Being the teacher, you automatically become the authority figure of the classroom. This entails two virtues for you to successfully perform this role. They are fairness and consistency. Fairness is treating everyone in the classroom equally, without favoritism or picking on a certain student. A hint of the opposite will give the impression that the teacher is fallible, decreasing the integrity the he supposedly has. Consistency should be likewise enforced all the time. If the teacher couldn't follow his own rules, how can the teacher expect his students to do so? Do this if you want to keep their respect for you intact. Handle disruptions with care Disruptions can be expected (when you present a topic with humor) or unexpected (students
fight during an exam). For both types, the role of the teacher remains to be the authority figure, but bear in mind that students are human beings with emotions as a primary source of motivation for them. There 4 points to consider under this situation. Never humiliate a student. Ask the student to stay after class and never show the other students how you will handle the student/students. This will give them the impression that you care about their dignity. Be objective. Establish the reason why they were called and always refer to the expectation that were established inside the classroom to make them understand their liability and responsibility. Stay positive. Do not begin the day with negative assumptions and expectations, regardless of existing habits or trends inside the classroom. Remember students need your guidance, and not your personal biases. Deal with disruptions intelligently. Disruptions have already caused a delay. Don't allow it to take more time than it should, specially if the disruption concerns only a specific few. Deal with it immediately and with the shortest time possible. You can also add humor to this situation but be sensitive with the punch-line. Don't teach just for the sake of teaching.
Last but not the least, lessons are always content driven and teachers should take it upon themselves to be creative enough to present their lessons in a way that the attention of the students are gained and their interest on the lesson motivates them to understand the lesson better. Once you've established this kind of learning environment, you'd be able to experience less or even zero disruptions inside the classroom.
