Workshop on Effective Classroom Management
The Inclusion and Counseling Department of BIS arranged a workshop regarding classroom management on 25th of October, 2017 for the primary teachers. The purpose of conducting the workshop was to enhance teachers’ understanding of managing the classes effectively and thereby establishing an orderly environment in the classroom. The sessions were led by Miss Emma (SENCO) and Miss Chinnu
Teachers concerned with classroom management typically need help with two issues: Controlling discipline problems/ dealing with discipline problems. The main points mentioned in the workshop were;
- The importance of effective classroom management
- The significance of displaying behavioral expectations and rules in classroom
- How to implement proper Reward and Consequences system in the classroom
- How to identify high needs students (special needs students/aggressive students/passive students/socially withdrawn and so on) and treat them accordingly
- Demonstration of using Class Dojo (Behavior management tool for the classroom)
Classroom management systems are effective because they increase student success by creating an orderly learning environment that enhances students’ academic skills and competencies, as well as their social and emotional development.
The workshop was very effective and informative. We hope that the implementation of Class Dojo will create a great impact in classes as it connects teachers, parents, and students who use it to share photos, videos, and messages through the school day. They can use Class Dojo to work together as a team, share in the classroom experience, and bring big ideas to life in their classrooms and homes.
