[Name] Classroom Management [Date] Classroom Management Plan. I believe Classroom Management is the key component in any educational setting. I believe that if.
Only you have the power to influence behavior by creating a classroom your students want to be part of and then strictly—obsessively—holding them accountable.
A classroom management plan is a contract you make with your students that promises you will protect their right to learn and enjoy school without interference.
Students need to feel comfortable and safe in order to learn effectively. As an educator, you need to manage your classroom in such a way that you create this sort of environment. A classroom management plan is a strategy you create and implement to help you get and maintain control of the classroom, as well as redirect and deal with negative behaviors. Whether you teach preschool, elementary, high school, or college, you will know how to respond when faced with disruptions to your learning environment.
I would also like to implement some class meetings where we can discuss what is working and not working with the class. I would like these to be like an open forum where ideas and suggestions can be discussed and hopefully implemented. I am very interested in learning what the students are thinking about and making the learning environment as much to their liking as possible. I think this dialogue is crucial in creating an environment where the students feel autonomous and in control of their learning.
In addition to making a class constitution, I would like to send out a monthly newsletter or post one on the web so parents can see what is going on in the classroom. I believe if parents are involved in their childs school, the child will have more support at home and the parent can help with any issues that arise. I believe in involving the parents as much as possible.
Through your work for this course you should be beginning to develop your ideas about how best to manage your classroom. There is certainly no one best way and teachers develop their own style of classroom management. This also remains a work in progress as teachers change and develop their style according to their experiences and the classes they teach.

Teachers must also consider the cognitive space necessary for a learning environment. This cognitive space is based upon the expectations teachers set for students in the classroom and the process of creating a motivational climate. Effective teachers create and implement classroom management practices that cultivate an engaging classroom environment for their students. Two specific areas of cognitive space that teachers include in their plans are setting expectations (i.e., rules and procedures) and creating a motivational climate.

When it comes to setting rules in the classroom, in some ways the old adage "hope for the best, but prepare for the worst" rings true.
Starting the school year on the right foot includes establishing classroom rules that will last the whole year through. Many teachers involve students in establishing their classroom rules. (Surprisingly, student-created rules are often much the same as -- or even tougher than -- rules a teacher might create. After all, students want to attend school in a safe environment, and they want to know the boundaries when it comes to classroom behavior.) Included: Ten activities for involving students in creating classroom rules.

Dear Reader, Every teacher needs to be aware of the characteristics of the students who come into the classroom. You are well on your way to reaching all of your students because you are aware of where they come from, what they bring with them into your classroom, and where they are going. Use this to your advantage:
Armed with this knowledge, you can go about providing learning experiences for them that will engage them from the beginning because the experiences are interesting and relevant.
it varies based on class/individual need there are MANY options

Classroom management is probably the most difficult part of teaching. It has been my experience that you must remain consistant in all that you do- post your rules and consequences- but don t forget that positive praise works the best in motivating students. I don t give out candy or stickers, but work with the class on creating rewards which have meaning. I made both a reward and a consequence box; the reward box has slips of paper for things like "no homework night", "lunch with the teacher", "extra recess", "sit with a friend for the day". My consequence box has slips like "write 25 sentences", "lose recess", " be sent to another class". I ve found that if the class gets rowdy, I can ask aloud "what will the consequence be if the class keeps talking?" and pull out a slip and read it to them and they will come right around. Also, it is very important to have a recognizeable signal to get their attention- a hand clap, bell, little xylophone- whatever. One of the best books I ve read on classroom management is the Harry Wong "First Day of School". It has lot s of good tips. Above all else, keep the kids busy- good luck
