The classroom management refers to some forms of arrangement and coordination that go on in the classroom. Whenever activities are not organized, there will be confusion and chaos. It is not likely that the activity will be carried out properly. Every teacher knows that a safe, clean, comfortable and attractive classroom can stimulate learning and help build a classroom community. But for many teachers, setting up the physical environment of their classrooms can be quite daunting, especially when faced with old buildings, crowded classrooms and insufficient storage space. You can make the most of your classroom environment by carefully considering your needs and the needs of your students.
Survey Your Classroom: Looking at the Basics
the first things to consider when organizing your classroom are cleanliness, light and temperature. Although you may not have complete control over some of these elements, try to make or suggest improvement as necessary.
The Floor Plan: Assessing Your Needs
Once you have checked the basic elements in your classroom, think about your floor plan. It should maximize classroom space and reflect your individual teaching style.
any of these guidelines hold true for the middle and upper grades, too. However, older students often spend more time seated in one area. Take your teaching style and lesson plans into consideration as you consider the different types of seating arrangements you might employ.
Positive, safe, and clean school environment is essential to sound child development and high level learning and is directly linked to pupil academic performance. Pupils learn best and achieve to their fullest potential when they are taught in an environment where they are physically, socially, and emotionally safe.
A positive school environment is associated with fewer pupil behavioral and emotional problems, increased academic success, and higher rates of staff retention which is important for providing a consistent set of adults whom pupils learn they can trust throughout their academic careers.
Feeling unsafe, however, adversely impacts pupil motivation, attitude, behavior, and overall functioning in school while also producing lower levels of academic achievement. The daily incidents of gossiping, bullying, and fighting that occur regularly in today’s schools are far more likely to contribute to pupils’ and teachers’ overall sense of safety, or lack thereof, than the major incidents of school violence that are often reported in the media.
Therefore, creating a safe and secure school environment involves multiple facets of a school environment, including the school climate, norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, and the physical state of the building.
In order for pupils and staff to perform at their best, they must feel safe in all aspects of their experiences, which requires a concerted effort on the part of all stakeholders.
To support safe and productive learning environments, schools can engage in several evidence-based targeted strategies to improve school climate. These efforts should be relationship-focused so that every pupil connects to the school structure, and based on a curriculum that promotes social, emotional, and civic competencies along with content-area competencies.
Also, any attempt to improve school climate should emphasize pupils’ unique strengths and use diverse and increasingly intensive approaches to support pupils’ academic abilities. Several important strategies and resources can be used to create safe, positive, and secure school environments: the quality of relationships between staff and pupils and their families; additional staff and supports from the community, including law enforcement and social service agencies; and the physical state of a school building such as air quality, noise levels, lighting, and temperature.
Research also shows that schools need additional staff, and other supports from the community in order to expand pupils’ access to counseling, anger management, and peer mediation services.
Additional pro-active partnerships with law-enforcement and social service agencies, including deliberate strategies to prevent bullying, gang activity, and other issues that put pupils and staff at risk can provide some of the supports schools need.
Also, consistently disruptive and potentially violent pupils should be placed in alternative settings. Schools should have the ability to place pupils who put themselves and others at risk in high-quality alternative education programs, distance learning opportunities, or other schools that can meet their academic, behavioral, and emotional needs while also providing job training.
Administrators and teachers in these alternative settings need appropriate training for working with and teaching these pupils.
There is also research to suggest that stricter dress codes and/or uniforms, when used in conjunction with other reform efforts, can reduce the perception of violence in schools and alter the school climate in positive ways. Stricter dress codes and uniforms can lead to fewer distractions, increased self-esteem, and less gang activity in schools.
