Teaching Strategies Series: Effective Classroom Management

Last updated on May 3, 2022

Hi Teachers! We’re excited to be back with our teaching strategy series. This time around, we’re looking at something that many teachers struggle with during different stages of their career – effective classroom management.

Managing your class well can make or break student engagement and classroom achievements. We’ve put together some tips to help you manage your classrooms better.

1.      Build Student Relationships for Better Classroom Management

When you relate with each student individually, students are likely to care more about your word. How can you do this? In a physical classroom environment, learn each student’s name and greet them at the door. Ask how their family is doing. Keep it very short but show them that you care. When you establish this relationship on a personal level, they will pay attention when you ask them to stay quiet during class.

2.      Maintain These Relationships & Boost Classroom Management

Now that you’re forming relationships with your students, maintaining them is key. Deep dive into each students’ academics, check in with them from time to time, and see where you can support them, resolve problems, and help them progress.

When you are invested deeply in their learning, students begin to trust you and this leads to them listening in chaotic classroom environments. They’re now convinced that you only want the best for them. This is an excellent strategy for effective long-term classroom management.

3.      Praise Good Behaviour

This one’s an oldie but a goodie! You’ve heard this time and again, but it can be an extremely effective classroom management strategy. Every time a student behaves well, praise them loudly and before others. Don’t show any bias in this regard and shower any student that behaves well with ample praise.

Implement the Steps Above for Effective Classroom Management!

By forming and maintaining strong relationships with your students, you’ve done more than half the work in achieving effective classroom management. The rest is simply good communication and you’re good to go! Comment below for any insights!
