Blog Discussion #4: 7 Tips for Better Classroom Management

The second post I chose this week for my blog discussion assignment was 7 Tips for Better Classroom Management, published on the website, Edutopia.

Secondary English teacher, Tyler Hester shares his ideas of what is at the heart of managing a classroom,
“In my mind, the first and most basic obligation of a teacher is to see the beauty that exists within every student. Every child is infinitely precious. Period. When we start from this vantage point, classroom management -- and its flip side, student engagement -- comes more easily. It's an outgrowth of students feeling loved and respected (para. 1,2). 
Tyler continues in his post with an example of this in the following thirty-minute video and by his list of seven tips.

  1.  Love Your Students
  2. Assume the Best in Your Students
  3. Praise What and When You Can
  4. Do Sweat the Small Stuff
  5. Identify Yourself
  6. Forge a Class Identity
  7. Have a Plan

I found the article to be inspiring as I begin my Classroom Management Plan in EDUC 3302. Tyler’s points put words to my thoughts that I have about teaching middle school and the environment that I seek.
