Lesson Planning and Classroom Management

Extracts from this document...


This assignment will look at lesson planning and classroom management. It will also analyse a lesson plan for the session on Stereotyping, on a Challenging Offending Behaviour course. A teacher is the manager of a classroom. They are responsible for learning and all that goes on inside it. 'Classroom management and management of student conduct are skills that teachers acquire and hone over time. These skills almost never "jell" until after a minimum of a few years of teaching experience. To be sure, effective teaching requires considerable skill in managing the myriad of tasks and situations that occur in the classroom each day. Skills such as effective classroom management are central to teaching and require "common sense," consistency, a sense of fairness, and courage. These skills also require that teachers understand in more than one way the psychological and developmental levels of their students. ...read more.


Initially rules and regulations would need setting. 'Many teachers establish rules and procedures at the beginning of the school year. They also try to be consistent in enforcing these rules and procedures. Many would also argue for positive consequences when rules are followed, and negative consequences when rules are broken.'(Unknown). Once those have been established the objectives should be made clear. Once the students are aware of these they know what they are working towards. Objectives should be clear and have short targets so that the students can see that they are achievable. This will help motivate students as the objectives won't seem so hard. Differentiation must be planned for. Some students could have more advanced learning skills than others, or prior knowledge of the subject so must be catered for, otherwise this could cause problems within the class. ...read more.


Another motivator is medals. Medals are information about what has been done well. It is important for all students to be given medals as encouragement and to recognise the process of learning. My own personal lesson plan has learning outcomes set for differentiated learners. It has lots of different activities set out. Some of these activities will hold the attention of the learners better than others. We tend to have students with learning difficulties in our classes, some that cannot even read or write. There are activities set out in the Stereotyping session that these students are easily able to do, without needing to read or write. There are no exams or tests at the end of class, so students aren't put under any pressure. My lesson plan does lack information about the students. I could improve on this in future. My classroom management can be improved by learning more about the students before the course starts. Setting the room out in a better position, so that any students who do need help don't feel isolated. ...read more.
