Discipline is one of the important parts to teach in the classroom, in the classroom the teacher has to know how to mantain the order because if the class doesn’t have order, the students will not learn.
When I started to teach, I had a class in Junior High School, the class was a disaster, When I was giving instructions some students were talking at the same time, I told them
“Please be quiet” but they started to say ” I’m not doing anything teacher”,
and I told them: That’s not true, you are doing a lot of noise so be quiet.
After that they started to talk and me too, It was a story without end.
That afternoon I was thinking about that argument and I asked for pieces of advice, the next day I started the class and the same students started to talk, I told them be quiet, one of the students told me that he didn’t do anything, with calm I asked him about the exercise that I was talking, He didn’t do anything and after that he was quiet.
Teacher has to be awake when students are talking in the classroom or creating distraction, Here we have some tips that I learned:
-The students have to know the rules, they must know that the teacher is an authority.
-The teacher and the students have to follow the rules.
-The class needs to be interesting (teachers should have creativity and imagination)
-Encouraging positive behaviors and use punishment after warnings.
-Take and use the leader, if you have the leader, you have one part of the students.
– Don’t get angry, keep the calm.
-Monitor the students.
Remember the age, the feelings, the enviroment are things that affect the students. We need to guide them…
