Understanding Classroom ManagementThis lesson will guide you in understanding a very important concept in the teachingand discuss the concept of classroom management and learning processclassroommanagement. Specifically, the objectives of this lesson are the following:discuss the concept of classroom management andanalyze the classroom management models used by teachers in the classroom.Education TheoryClassroom management refers to the strategies used by teachers in order to make surethat students will be able to learn well. This includes the techniques and skills used by teachersto ensure that students exhibit behaviors that help promote learning ("What 1s ClassroomManagement?" 2018).Teachers manage the class with the ultimate goal of avoiding disruption. There are fourtheories on classroom management. These are behaviorism, choice theory, learner-directedlearning, and assertive discipline (Simpson 2015).Behaviorism or Skinner's Model focuses on ensuring that students are guided by rules.Teachers who adopt this model make sure that students follow rules. Reinforcement is used toensure that the students will follow the classroom rules. If the students follow, good behavior isrecognized through praise or other forms of reward. If the students misbehave or do not followrules, the behavior is either ignored or punished.The Choice Theory or the Glasser Model values the importance of making studentsunderstand the reasons behind their behavior so that they can make responsible choices.Teachers who use this approach see themselves as facilitators in guiding students make the rightdecisions. They ensure that the activities, curriculum, and the learning environment will be ableto address the needs of the students. Classroom rules are still very essential to regulate behavior,however, teachers who use this model encourage students to reflect and discuss their actions andimprove their behavior if rules have not been followed.The learner-directed learning or Jones Model states that the role of the teachers is tohelp students develop self-control. As a facilitator, teachers empower students to be responsiblefor their own learning and actions. Through appropriate gestures, a system of incentives andguidance, teachers help students manage their own behavior (Simpson 2015).LESSON 1
