Classroom Management Plan SECOND EDITION : 

JENNIFER NELSON 10TH GRADE ENGLISH FOREST HILL HIGH SCHOOL JACKSON, MS Classroom Management Plan SECOND EDITION

Definition of Classroom Management : 

Definition of Classroom Management Classroom management is the way a teacher runs a classroom, in order to: maximize student learning, through time management and making the material interesting TIP: write times on your LPs! make the classroom a calm and positive working environment, and minimize disrupted and wasted time. TIP: daily routines reduce time-wasting

Philosophy of Classroom Management : 

Philosophy of Classroom Management When a teacher is an effective classroom manager, her students know exactly what is expected of them and how to succeed. Classroom management is driven by the teacher’s preparedness, responsiveness to students’ learning needs, and rewards system. Good classroom management requires a large investment of time and energy by the teacher and students up-front, but pays off later. Once in place, classroom management takes care of itself in automatic, daily classroom routines and procedures.

Slide 5: 

An effective classroom manager: has students who know exactly what is expected of them behaviorally. values preparedness as much as persistence in following through on consequences during all points of the school year. Knows when to be responsive to students’ learning needs, and when over-responsiveness hurts the cause. requires a fluctuating amount of time and energy, and sometimes pays off. CM is not an insurance policy or a one-time investment; it’s rolling. REVISED Philosophy of Classroom Mngmnt

Positive Learning Environment : 

Positive Learning Environment Students should be deeply involved in their work. TIP: authentic assessments rule! i.e., vocabulary projects, drafting to publishing units Students should have opportunities to work together every class period; monotonous instruction is bound to cause boredom and disengagement, and thus a negative learning environment. The teacher should engage students, and students should engage each other. The teacher should have high expectations of all students, and verbalize those expectations regularly. The teacher should give verbal and written praise to the student when s/he participates or improves.

Positive Learning Environment, cont. : 

Positive Learning Environment, cont. The teacher should be attentive to students who learn at a faster pace than others, and always have supplemental materials on hand for them. TIP: differentiated instruction (i.e., HL book selection) TTW encourage tangential questions, “teachable moments,” and student-led learning, even if they deviate somewhat from the teacher’s own lesson plan. TTW provide a box in which students can drop ideas for lessons. TSW be motivated to participate, speak and share their thoughts and ideas in class. Creativity is encouraged by displayed student work.

REVISED Positive Learning Environment : 

REVISED Positive Learning Environment Students should have opportunities to work together every class period; monotonous instruction is bound to cause boredom and disengagement, and thus a negative learning environment. Rather, maintaining an almost purely individual or pair work environment turned out the most active learning. I never did get to… TTW provide a box in which students can drop ideas for lessons.
