The ways of approaching students for a better classroom management

By: Catherine Peñas

Imparting knowledge to students, teaching is an art that when perfected can produce some of the best results and satisfaction to the teacher and the society at large. This is because when you are in the classroom you are taxed with the responsibility of creating an environment that allows information to be shared, understood, and demonstrated within the classroom and in the day-to-day activities of the students. One of the best strategies for classroom management is the teacher-student relationship because it fosters a respectful environment where students and teachers can listen to each other, ask questions, and make constructive comments. When this is done freely, the teacher will generally gain valuable insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each and every student in the classroom. It goes without saying that every student has a unique approach to learning that has been shaped by his or her upbringing at home, at school, and in the societies with which they have engaged. They also possess varying levels of academic, social, and physical proficiency. Therefore, the teacher’s job is to assess and comprehend the student under their care and devise a plan that would allow for the seamless transfer of information while meeting curriculum requirements. The instructor is the authority, and the students must recognize this and obey their instructions without question. This can only occur in an atmosphere of mutual respect, fostered by the teacher’s confidence and the way he interacts with his students—a relationship built on friendship, trust, and respect. Proficiency in the subject matter and the manner in which it is taught to the students are crucial. Believing in students’ ability, their inner goodness, and their capacity to succeed in extracurricular, social, and academic activities is a powerful motivator for students and improves their performance. The teacher will have definitely sparked a desire for success in the classroom and he will stimulate the desire for learning, which will manifest in the students’ struggle to excel, when this belief is genuinely felt by the students and when they are made aware by genuine acknowledgement of their progress and improvements.

When implemented effectively, actual learning will occur in the classroom, even from the most indifferent student. Being in total control of the classroom is never simple since there will inevitably be instances where the established guidelines are disregarded due to disruptions from other students or unusual accidents. This could be done by loudness, physical altercations, or unconventional language. any institution has clear guidelines on how to handle any situation, and the teacher is the only one who can choose the most effective method for getting the students back in line. Before addressing the incidents, the instructor should identify the underlying source of the issue by building a friendly and trusting relationship with the students. This will enable the instructor to better comprehend the student’s situation and come up with other solutions for them rather than assigning punishment in a hurry. A tiny amount of concern and the knowledge that they are valued and heard are all that many pupils require. If the instructor notices that the pupils are being disturbed by other ongoing issues, they should attempt to counsel the students before recommending them to the professional assistance offered by the institutions. In order to regain control, the prescribed punishment must always be carried out and be followed by an apology that the teacher deems suitable. This will stop the conflict that comes with being unbiased. To retain power and encourage students to pay attention, a teacher should cultivate a clear, controlled voice that can be heard in every part of the classroom. The class will be better able to pay attention to the elements required for the lesson to be effective if the pace and tone are varied based on the essential areas. It is quite helpful to have a way to voice concerns, make comments, and ask for clarifications; this opportunity should be given whenever needed. It is crucial that the teacher constantly monitors each student’s book throughout the lecture to make sure they are all following along with the rest of the class. As a result of keeping everyone engaged, every student will understand the importance of the lesson and help the instructor succeed in the classroom. Most classes do not contain students with the same degree of academic aptitude, and there may be a range of subject matter comprehension levels among the pupils. This may also be seen in other subjects, where some students perform better in some and fall behind in others.Thus, the teacher should specifically help each student when a problem is detected and this should be done when the class is working out exercises during the lesson. With this individual touch to each pupil, progress will be made and will avoid students getting frustrated when the gist of the subject gets complicated. By being understanding and patient, most students will come to you for assistance when they are faced with a task they cannot accomplish and by continued guidance good results will be seen. To me teaching to make students excel in academics is important but it is even more beneficial when we create people who are better and who can be able to make the right choices for themselves. Many a time is when we find exceptionally bright students getting lost in drugs, peer groups and other negative behaviors that eventually erode their academic potential. Numerous students worldwide experience this in the absence of appropriate and efficient guidance. This may occur because society places too much focus on performance and nobody teaches the other values needed to become independent. In order to help each student understand their significance and the fact that everyone is unique, teachers should treat each student as an individual and refrain from making generalizations. A result of this will be self-acceptance. A student can be assisted in selecting his or her own path based on their abilities with the use of gradual motivation, guidance, and assistance. In order for our students to develop a passion for development in the industries they select, it is our responsibility as educators to support and mentor them as they create their careers in those fields.
