A few years ago I wrote this cheeky post, reminding teachers that sometimes it’s a good idea to shut up for a while. I’m returning to this idea in a slightly more reflective way due to this post on Brainpickings about the twentieth-century novelist, poet, playwright, and psychiatrist Paul Goodman who examined “the nine types…

The Most Unusual And Yet Effective Methods Of Controlling My Classroom - eTeachersHub

The Most Unusual And Yet Effective Methods Of Controlling My Classroom - eTeachersHub | TEFL Classroom Management | Scoop.it
Our reader says: “I have found one the most unusual and yet effective methods of controlling my classroom. Initially, yes, I would be upset and simply asked the student to leave the classroom. Generally, removing only a couple of the real antagonists left the room relaxed and the other students focused. However, I have also discovered that by being quiet and not showing any anger at all actually makes the students get very very quiet!! They put their heads down and get to work, occasionally I have stepped out of the room for a minute to collect my thoughts, and found the class to be so quiet again that I could hear only the pencils on the paper!! However, on the flip side, I do allow the students to be boisterous during group activities and encourage class discussions. Basically, I am trying to train them to recognize when it is okay to be a little mischievous in class. As for me I do go to the gym on a regular basis, not only for stress relief but also for health. I also make sure I live far enough from the school that walking home at the end of the day [...]

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 15, 2014 10:03 PM

I would be careful subscribing to the lists as an end-all-to-be-all.  If a teacher was doing several things on the first list and very few on the second, it is problematic. My classroom looked disorganized, but I was on top of things, we had lots of conversation, we used creative projects, had few discipline issues, etc. Students enjoyed coming to classes. That is the ultimate measure.
