PostSubject: Top Proven Classroom Management Tips   22nd November 2015, 10:21 pm

Tip #1: Set logical rules and consequences.

Keep the goal of learning in mind and make sure students know why the rules are what they are: “We walk instead of running in the hallway because we want to make sure that everyone is safe.”

Tip #2: Use positive instead of negative language.

As soon as you tell someone not to do something, the first image in that person’s head is what you said not to do. I’ll show you: Don’t think about ducks wearing hats. Are you thinking about ducks wearing hats? Thought so. To avoid the meddlesome subconscious, opt for positive-language instead of negative-language rules. For example:

“Be prepared” instead of “Don’t forget your pencil.”
“Shut the door quietly” instead of “Don’t slam the door.”

Tip #3: Make your students feel responsible for their own learning environment.

Give your students agency over their learning environment, which gets them feeling responsible for their own learning. Create rules together as a class, encourage those with leadership personalities to direct the in-class discussion, and walk around instead of standing up front for the entire lesson so that you aren’t the funnel for conversation. Ask students to “check” themselves, as in “Check yourself to see if you are using your indoor voice,” which sends the message that you see the students as individuals who are capable of handling themselves.

Thank you so much Imm.
That is a good idea we would say positive language instead of negative language rules.
I will search some positive language and practice to use it.
Also i would aware to say positive language and negative language.
