Classroom Management – forum discussion

Another great topic for a forum discussion….Classroom management. As teachers, or facilitators it can certainly be a challenge at times to manage our classrooms. This particularily comes in to play when students are not behaving quite as we imagined. So what do we do?

We discussed everything from what do we do with students who arrive late to class, to those who text during class, to those who take over during group discussions.

Below are a couple of links to classroom management. The first is a video from the 50’s that shows two very different methods of managing a class. The next is a link to an article on how to better create critical thinking skills in young learners to pave that path to critical adult thinkers. In the end…isn’t that really what we want?
