I believe that if students are in a safe environment, then learning can take place. Having the right environment for all students to learn is my major goal of implementing good classroom management--without it the students would not be able to learn. Philosophical Statement I am committed to making my classroom a safe and challenging environment and engaging my students through the curriculum as well as getting to know them and interacting with them one-on-one.
I believe that meeting the needs of my students is a very crucial part of my classroom. I want them to be comfortable with the other students, as well as me, so that there can be meaningful discussions and interactions. Talking will be common place in my classroom, along with group work.
I want to encourage all students to participate in class so that they can learn from each other as well as me. I want to have a democratic and equitable classroom so that students can learn.
I want to be a fair as I can be, so the students trust me. I feel that I have a very patient and calm attitude with my class. I ask students about their life outside of class and feel that they respond in class even more, knowing that someone is paying attention to them. I want them to feel comfortable asking questions of me.
I think my attitude towards the students is not overbearing or authoritative. I do not believe in forcing the students to do anything. I want students to be a part of their learning. I want to motivate students to learn and keep their interest by using engaging curriculum.
I want to involve students in rules about the classroom as well as what curriculum they would like to study. I believe if students feel they are involved in the workings of the classroom, they will be more motivated to engage in the class and in turn, learn.
Room Arrangement Walking through the door, students are hit with vibrant colors on the walls, natural lighting from the windows and an inviting sensation as they glide along the carpeting. They feel safe and welcome wandering to their seats in a big circle of tables. They can see their classmates as they face each other and glance from wall to wall looking at maps, art, famous people, different cultures and student work all depicted in colorful posters around the room.
There is not a drop of white paint to be seen. The carpet on the floor is comforting to the student and yields a form of tranquility amidst the invigorating walls. I believe the set up of a classroom has a big effect on student learning and I hope that my classroom will be an environment that will engage my students in critical thinking, discussions and reflection.
Having the tables in a circle will create an environment rich in discussions. I think it is very important to engage students in discussion to try to draw out and challenge ideas and let the class learn from each other. No one is sitting behind the circle or on the sides of the room; the class enjoys the eye contact and facial expressions of everyone as they share ideas.
Students can "create knowledge, not simply absorb it from higher authorities," p. I believe the circle of tables encourages discussion and in turn, students learn from each other. I believe that students should be constantly challenged and provoked to think critically.
I put an array of posters on the walls to show an outline of the year ahead. Even if the students are not paying full attention and their mind is wandering, I hope to catch a few of them thinking about the posters inquisitively.
I want to have thought-provoking pictures to invoke interest in the students whether it be artwork of different times, or pictures of people men, women and all races and ethnicities or landmarks throughout the world or just a black and white photo of the dust bowl.
I want supplemental materials for students to have access to for studying, writing or researching. I will have bookshelves in the corner where students can research and use resources supplemental to the textbooks.
There will be a few computers for projects, reports and research, as well as use of applications to present reports to the class i.
Students will also have access to the computer lab in the school where they can learn social studies as well as technology by integrating the lessons.
This will foster a holistic-learning approach that I will strive to teach to my students. We will not be solely learning the facts of history, but will be integrating art, math, geography, science and psychology to deepen our understanding of our units.
As you can see by my drawings see Attachments 1 and 2I want to create an environment in my classroom that is conducive to discussions and groupwork.Time management Developing time management skills is a journey that may begin with this Guide, but needs practice and other guidance along the way.
