Classroom management is one of the many challenges that teachers face. Sometimes, it may be overwhelming to control a class. Here are some tips that you can try to manage your classroom efficiently (They are not in any particular order):
1. Establish the class rules at the beginning og the semester and enforce those rules throughout the school year. Students will try to bend some of the classroom rules like how they sometimes bend their household rules. This is why it is important to reinforce the rules so that the students don't have any excuse to break the rules; if they do break the rules, they will be punished.
2. Always be prepared. If the teacher is not prepared for class, the students will definitely know. If the teacher tries prepare himself/herself during class time, the students will use that time to chit chat or misbehave.
3. Always have a backup plan. We live in a world where everything is becoming digital. However, digital devices can have issues. If you create a slide show for your class on google slides, save it on windows power point just incase the internet doesn't work. You may also save the slides on a flashdrive just incase it accidently get deleted from your computer. Whatever you do, have a backup plan for whatever situation that may occur.
4. Stay consistent. If you expect consistency from your students, they will expect the same from you. If you tell your students to say the Pledge every day during homeroom, keep that tradition until the end of the school year. Your student will become concerned if you deviate from the normal routine.
I hope that these suggestions help.
