How to become an extremely good classroom manager.
How To Be a Student and the Importance of Classroom Procedures. We absolutely must teach our student how to be students. Where else and how else will they learn how to be a student?
Think about it for a moment. Children have to be taught everything: how to talk, how to walk, how to ride a bike. And yet many of us, teachers and homeschooling parents alike, spend very little time teaching our children how to be students. And although we don’t teach them how to behave in an educational setting, we certainly expect them to know what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. And almost every single time we are disappointed. This is because we have not taught them how to succeed in this area.
So, now it is time to teach them how to be students. But first, we must know what to teach them. Insha’Allah I will be posting on this topic over the coming weeks and months so that you can develop a written set of expectations and procedures to teach to your student(s).
- what to expect of children at each developmental level
- why spanking and other forms of punishment don’t work
- preventing misbehavior and alternatives to punishing
- why children need & test limits
- why it is important to accept children’s feelings
- adults need to set good examples for children
