The best classrooms offer a loving and supportive atmosphere while at the same time setting clear limits for behavior. How can we accomplish this? Here are some ideas to get you started! Spend whatever time it takes at the beginning of the year to teach your students what you expect in terms of academics and behavior.
Let them know that unkind words and actions will not be tolerated, and put a stop to any form of bullying right from the start. Nip it in the bud, as the saying goes! Teach your students a quiet signal and use it consistently.
Just as importantly, be sure students are quiet and focused before you give directions or address them as a group.
Implement an effective classroom management system. The Stoplight Management System is my favorite, and I used it almost exclusively for over 10 years. To implement it, I posted a large poster of a stoplight prominently on a bulletin board and surrounded it with numbered library book pockets.
One pocket contained narrow slips of red, yellow, orange and green paper. We needed one more color to make it work. Everyone started out the day with a green slip in their numbered pocket, but if they were off-task or bothering someone, a yellow slip was added to their pocket as a warning.
Adding an orange slip meant a consequence such as a note home to parents, and a red slip meant an immediate phone call or a time-out in another classroom. This system was both simple and effective.
Teach social skills explicitly. Observe them as they are interacting with each other and figure out which skills they need to improve.
What do you do and what do you say? Next, involve them in a cooperative learning lesson and prompt them to praise each other throughout the activity. Try teaching a new skill each Monday and leaving the poster visible throughout the week.
For more details about how to teach social skills, visit the Social Skills page on my Teaching Resources website. Introduce partner activities before team activities. Always choose the partners yourself in advance.
As easy way to do this is to write their names on index cards, sort them into pairs, and clip the sets together with a paper clip. Simple partner activities include taking turns on a worksheet, playing a game, or discussing a set of question cards.University of South Florida Scholar Commons Graduate Theses and Dissertations Graduate School Rape attitudes and beliefs: A replication study.
