By successfully managing a classroom, we increase student success and create a productive and cooperative learning environment. Effective behavior management plans allow students to get the most out of their time spent in school and ensure that you maintain your sanity.
By establishing clear and consistent standards of behavior teachers ensure that their classes are organized and productive and that students do not have the opportunity to engage in fights or inflict harm on another student. Additionally, by punishing students who name call or are disrespectful to others, teachers reduce the likelihood that verbal conflicts will escalate and become physical.
Students work more productively and share more openly when there is a positive classroom environment. Through behavior management, teachers create an atmosphere of mutual respect in which all classroom participants feel safe to share their options without risk of censure. Without classroom management, students will likely feel that they are not free to speak their mind or participate, as their peers may make them feel unwelcome or unworthy.
