Maintaining Classroom Discipline No matter how much you know about what you teach, managing the classroom has to be effective to produce a learning environment that results in learning. As a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, that means you have to do three things very well:
1. You know how to read, write, speak and understand English at a high level.
2. You understand how children learn (pedagogy).
3. You are able to manage the classroom so that learning can occur.
