Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

Managing Your Classroom: 5 Great Skills to Teach Your Students/Pupils



Overview

Over the years, teachers at various levels have discovered that the most important aspect of effective classroom delivery is classroom management.

It doesn’t matter how bright the teacher or how qualitative the content of the materials used; if proper classroom management is not put in place, all efforts to educate the school children fall through.

Hence, the ability to maintain an effective classroom management system remains the litmus test of a great teacher.

Where proper classroom management is not in existence,

  • -          The classroom is not conducive for learning;

  • -          Pupils are not taught well;

  • -          Targets are not met;

  • -          Learning becomes difficult

  • -          The teacher is frustrated as he labours under weight…


So, what do we do? Get it right, and solve a problem for a lifetime!

Managing your class well has more to do with what your pupils think and do than it has to do with your worries and reactions. You only need to redefine their thinking and deeds, and the rest falls into shape.

Here we look at 5 core skills you need to teach and train your pupils on, and by the time they master it, classroom management will have become a definition of your class.

Each of these core skills comes with 7 guided instructions that when adhered to and mastered, produce your dream classroom.

Let’s go…

1.    Courtesy

Courtesy is not just a table manner topic; it is what every serious-minded teacher must teach his/her pupils and maintain that it be adhered to. You have to keep emphasizing on this as well as enforce its compliance until every child in your class embrace it as a habit.

Below are the 7 guided instructions that help instill courtesy in your pupils:

-          Greet others: Your pupils should be taught to greet their fellows, teachers, heads as well as visitors in a gracious manner.

-          Take your turn: Here, children are taught to maintain their turn and allow others do same- no place for jumping of queue.


-          Say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’: You teach your pupils to always say ‘please’ when making a request from another fellow, be it a superior or a mate. They should also appreciate others’ kindness by saying ‘thank you’.

-          Offer to help with a job: Your pupils should be taught to always offer to help others, in whatever way they could, whenever such opportunity comes calling.


-          Hold a door open for others: Here you teach your pupils to imbibe a mindset for service.

-          Applaud others’ good efforts: Your children should be taught to appreciate the good in others and applaud it, and not be rather jealous or critical.


-          Invite someone to join a game or group: This is an act of friendliness that fosters good neighbourliness among your pupils.

Courtesy creates an atmosphere of love and family in your class, thereby making it easier to achieve a crisis-free classroom.


2.    Conflict prevention

Yes, prevention and not just resolution! You don’t wait for conflicts to ensure in your class before you do something about it as that can eat deep into the entire class period. Not only that- the aftermath of an initial conflict (whether resolved or not) can still linger on for days and weeks, thereby affecting the learning psychology of the pupils involved if not the entire class.

This is why you must teach your pupils the skill of conflict prevention.

And here are the 7 guided instructions:

-          Be quick to say sorry when you offend: No time for argument; simply say, ‘I am very sorry’.

-          Show respect to others’ views: You don’t put down others when they answer questions or share their opinions- let the teacher be the judge.


-          Use others’ property by permission: You don’t steal it; you don’t take it by force!

-          Ignore irritants or report them: If you can, ignore them; if you can’t, report them to your teacher; never take laws into your hands.


-          Respond to teasing with humour and reciprocation.

-          Maintain a positive and friendly outlook and you’ll not be easily ruffled.

[
-          Avoid abusive words on others: Teach your pupils words that they’re not expected to use on others- words that are both derogatory and defamatory.

If you can prevent conflicts in your class, then you can manage it effectively.


3.    Contentment

When children are contented with what they have, they are less likely to have a critical spirit and a posture of hate and jealousy against others. This helps you as a teacher to focus more on the real deal than settling issues each day.

Below are the 7 guided instructions to inculcate this skill in your pupils:

-          Be satisfied with whatever your parents provided for you: Whether it is food, learning materials or any other essential items, you need to teach and train your pupils to make do with what they have.

-          Remain original, you’re good to go: Every child has potentials; try to emphasize this daily to each of them. It is good to aspire for a better life, but not good to exchange one’s originality for another’s.


-          Always have a grateful attitude: Train them to be grateful to God, to their parents, teachers and every other person that is relevant to their good in life.

-          Manage your items very well: Every act of contentment springs from the ability to safeguard the little one has. Teach your pupils this principle.

-          Remain optimistic: Even when a child is down, remind him/her of the possibility of getting up and getting better.


-          Be proud of your achievement: In whatever area- academic or extracurricular activity, each child should be taught to be proud of his/her achievement, no matter how insignificant it may appear.

-          Share your worries with your teacher: Our pupils are not less humans- they have worries and concerns as we do. Train your children that it is not contentment to stifle such worry and concern- they should rather share it with their teacher, who is supposed to be a matured friend.

When school children develop the skill of contentment, they have a positive and cheerful mindset that makes learning easy and enjoyable.


4.    Concentration
Every average teacher has this as one of his greatest challenge in managing his/her classroom- lack of concentration among pupils. And we all know too well that if this area is not settled, classroom management becomes a dream in futility.

So how do you instill the skill of concentration in your pupils to get the desired result in classroom delivery?

The following 7 guided instructions answer the question:

-          Get your materials ready before lesson time: You must emphasize on this until it becomes a habit with your pupils.

-          Have a good rest and recreation: You as a teacher will help to create this. You don’t eat deep into their recreation period and expect them to concentrate during lessons. If there is a time earmarked for pupils to rest, enforce it and never allow any child do any other thing else, no matter how important that may appear.


-          Be time-conscious: When pupils are trained to be time-conscious in meeting targets, they have less time to lose concentration, as they are bound to concentrate in order to meet up with given targets.

-          Be attentive in the classroom: This cannot be over-emphasized. You have to enforce it.


-          Maintain a good sitting posture: You don’t allow your pupils to sit in a haphazard way in the class. This might inconvenience them, thereby making it difficult for them to concentrate.

-          Keep away the trash: You also need to help out in this area. Every material or item that could form an object of distraction should be kept away from the pupils during lesson times. This includes materials on previous or upcoming lesson, water bottle and all what’s not.

-          Share your inconvenience with your teacher: Emphasize on this- your pupils should find it easy to share with you things that affect their ability to concentrate in the classroom; and efforts must be made to proffer the appropriate solution.

Concentration of your pupils during lesson time helps you in more way than one to giving your best as well as getting the best result from your pupils.


5.    Compliance to rules

Everything we have discussed so far about skills to develop in your pupils is all centered on adhering to certain guided rules. So, what do you think will happen if your pupils are not trained in the skill of complying with rules? Your guess is as good as mine!

How do you now develop and inculcate this skill in your pupils?

The following 7 guided instructions do the magic when taught and imbibed:

-          Keep a copy of the class rules and rehearse it daily: As a teacher, you have to work this out. For your pupils to comply with rules, they must have access to these rules- either by having a copy each or having the rules pasted in a conspicuous and strategic place in the classroom, where each child can always see it. In fact, it should be rehearsed each day.

-          Respect your teacher’s view: There is no room for teacher/pupil supremacy struggle if rules must be adhered to by the pupils. Emphasize that it is your own view as the teacher that must always stand amidst contrasting views. Don’t give any room for any child to dictate to tune of the class music.


-          Respect your class monitors: While the class monitors must shun over-bearing attitude, they are nonetheless need to respected, otherwise their task of assisting in classroom management will be jeopardized. So, emphasize that due respect be given them.

-          Ask private questions if in doubt: You wouldn’t want to create problem for yourself by allowing children under you to challenge your opinions and views openly. Teach them that if they are in doubt of the appropriateness of a given instruction, they should meet you privately to discuss their concern and submission.


-          Remind others to keep to class rules: Each pupil should be out to help others to ensure that class rules are adhered to by constantly reminding those who are at the verge of defaulting.

-          Report offenders including over-bearing class monitors: No child has a right to fight another for breaking class rules; neither should they cover them up. They should be taught rather to report to the teacher.


-          Let justice rule: Justice includes fairness, acceptability and compassion. Be sure no child will be ready to obey you or your class rules, if that child feels that he/she is not fairly treated or accepted like every other child in the class. And the practice of justice begins with you the teacher. If you fail in this, you’ve failed in all.

Laws are made to be complied with, so are class and general school rules. Hence, efforts must be made to teach and train the school children on how to imbibe the skill and culture of compliance with rules. If they can do this, they can do all others as well.






Conclusion

Managing your classroom is only possible when the kids in your class are managed to be the best they can be. And this is only possible when they master certain skills that guarantee a crisis-free classroom as explained in the foregoing.

Of course, this is not a day’s job. It is what we as teachers must judiciously follow through until it becomes the sole definition of our class. And the result will be that students and pupils enjoy learning while the teacher is happy delivering contents.
It looks difficult though, but very possible and rewardable.


Just try it and you will be happy you did!
