This week our Motivation and Management of Students for Effective Learning class learned about Planning for Effective Classroom Management. Our lecturer this week are Ms. Namirah, Ms. Meti and Mr. Lega.

There are 5 principles of Planning for Effective Classroom Management, they are: developmental differences influence classroom management, management and instruction are interdependent, classroom organization is essential for effective classroom management, rules and procedures are the cornerstone of an effective management system, and the first days of school set the tone for the year. To learn all of the principles we were separated into four group that learned one specific topic in each group then we spread out to get other principles from other group.

Developmental differences influence classroom management is how your students’ development will influence how you manage your classroom. How you giving task, instruction, activities or even task level will differences depend on students’ development. For example in giving instruction for elementary students, teacher needs to give both verbal and visualization instruction, when teacher gives instuction teacher should model i o the student. It would be differences if teacher gives instruction to high school students’, teacher will give verbal instruction only.

Management and instruction are interependent means that how your create the learning environment will influence your instruction in class. For example, to make instruction for students that chatting or did not listen other student that give opinion to the class, teacher can use sign instruction.

Classroom organization is essential for effective classroom management, organization in this principles includes first preparing materials in advance, means prepare not only tools that you will use that day but also lesson plan, document, etc. Second is starting classes and activities on time. Third is making transitions quickly and smoothly, means that transition from one activities to another activities must considered the students readiness, are they already done with task that we gave or do they understand the material that we delivered. Fourth is creating well-established routines, for example pray before begin the class, raise hand before asking question, how to collect homework, etc.

Rules and procedures are the cornerstone of an effective management system. These rules are descriptions of standards for acceptable behavior, and the procedures are guidelines for accomplishing reccuring tasks, such as sharpening pencils and making transitions from one activity to another (Carter & Doyle, 2006; Good & Broophy, 2008; Eggen & Kauchak). Both rules and procedures can facilitate both academic and social-emotional learning. For example, to solve the isolated student in class, teacher can give rules like exclude classmates is forbidden.

The first day of school set the tone for the year, is how you prepare the class, how you give instruction, how you communicate to student, how you manage the class, or even how you dress in the first day of school will affect the class tone for the year. I think how you dress is crucial thing since students will see teacher credibilities through what dress you wear on. I think that is all from me. Thank you. Richa Fatimah (2009110007).
