In this write-up, I will seek to explain the ways in which I could establish ground rules with learners, which strengthens behaviour and respect for others. In doing this, I will be explaining what ground rules are and why they are necessary. How best they can be established and also ensure that students take ownership of rules by putting responsibility on them. Ground rules can be defined as terms which govern the working relationship between the school/teacher and its learners. According to Jo Budden “good classroom management depends a lot on how you establish ground rules at the beginning of the course”.
I also believe that schoolwork should never be given as punishment. There are many facets involved in managing a classroom and all of them must be recognized and addressed in order to have a healthy classroom environment. I believe that these facets include instructional content, delivery, and behavior management. Behavior management techniques must be presented clearly and consistently. I believe that students need to be taught appropriate behavior and teacher expectations.
The instrument of the Assertive Discipline Model operates upon the premise that children can be controlled through the usage of body language, and the directions from the teacher with parental support (Canter 1992). The teacher is the primary promoter for change using this model and is solely responsible for the care and implementation of a forward, direct, and non-compromising model that will result in total student compliance. According to Charles H. Wolfgang (2001) Assertive Discipline is a classroom management system that revolves around the right of the teacher to teach and the right of the teacher to expect students to obey. There are clear expectations of students, and if the classroom rules are not followed, certain consequences are administered for the students that “choose” to break the rules. The teacher seeks
Running head: MY PERSONAL CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT My Personal Classroom Management Grand Canyon University EDU430N: Classroom Management Professor Allison Atkins June 20, 2010 My Personal Classroom Management Plan In order to establish an optimal system of discipline, teachers need an encompassing viewpoint that includes the purpose of discipline as well as the elements that comprise discipline and how those elements work to improve behavior while still maintaining motivation and dignity (Charles, 2008). There are various approaches to discipline that are effective in the classroom. Almost any disciplinary approach can be organized to focus on helpfulness and positive relations with students (Charles, 2008). Therefore, when teachers
Policies are oftenly created by the governing bodies of the school in order for rules and regulations to be in place and enforced. When these policies are in place, it means there are some determined procedures of how schools operations are handled and all staff and pupils know about the expectation of them and act accordingly. This saves time, prevents confusion and unifies the school. To create a safe learning environment such policies are created which establish a safe physical and mental environment for the staff and students of the school. To achieve these, policies such as anti bullying policy, equal opportunity, fire drills and mental health guidelines etc are created.
Self Management The students should be made aware of what their responsibilities are and exactly what is expected of them. When students are confronted with precise responses and required behaviors, it allows them to build a framework or foundation for everything they will encounter for that particular year. They are given tools to govern their work, their play, their interactions with other students, their teachers and staff. They know who they are, where they belong, what role they play, and have an understanding of their individual importance in the bigger picture of school, home and life. This knowledge provides immense security and a sense of well-being.
M- TDA 2.6 Unit 3.3 Describe own roles and responsibilities and those of others in the team. Roles and responsibilities as a Teaching Assistant in a Primary School. *Teaching Assistant= TA *Special Educational Needs= SEN TAs have an essential role to play in the smooth and effective running of a school.

Helping to organise the learning environment and supporting the introduction of new activities.
An educator should constantly be revising lesson plans and expanding their own knowledge in order to deliver an optimal learning experience for the students. Incorporating guidelines to educate students without bias into a code of ethics ensures that students receive equal treatment in the classroom. An educator’s primary concern should be the physical and mental well being of the student. This being said, it is the responsibility of the educator to be vigilant of a student’s physical and emotional behavior while in the classroom. Child abuse is a dilemma that may be encountered when working as a professional educator in the school system.
I will create this environment through an engaging curriculum, personable interaction, topic orientated discussions, and group work. Since my license will include an endorsement in Special Education my classroom management will include a focus on flexibility defined as the ability to respond to the moods, emotions and the capabilities of my students on any given day. Meeting the needs of my students, based on their individual need, will be a crucial part of my classroom management structure. I will accomplishment this by promoting self-management and self-efficacy in my students to the best of their abilities. Creating a predictable, consistent, and success-oriented environment will promote self-management in my students by creating, basic, daily routines with limited changes (Savage & Savage, 2010).
Well in my opinion each person will have his or her own opinion about that answer. I believe an effective classroom is when things transition from one routine to the other smoothly with no disruption. An effective classroom needs rules and organization, in order for the classroom to be successful. Rules are statements of a teacher’s expectation for each student’s behavior in the classroom. A teacher needs certain expectations; (specific behaviors or outcomes) in order for the classroom to run smoothly.
