Appropriate levels of dominance, cooperation, and knowing your students support a positive classroom dynamic!
Appropriate Dominance: the teacher’s ability to provide clear purpose and strong guidance regarding both academics and student behavior exhibited through establishing clear behavior expectations, clear learning goals, and exhibiting assertive behavior.
Appropriate Cooperation: where dominance centers on the teacher as the driving force, cooperation deals with the teacher and students working together as a team in learning as well as effective relationships. The main road to this end is the teacher taking personal interest in each student in the class.
Knowing Students: the most effective classroom managers do not treat all students the same, rather they take a personal interest in their students and show sensitivity to their diverse and specific needs.
Effective Classroom Management
which ultimately leads to…
High Student Achievement!!
Follow the path!
