It is clear that effective classroom management correlates with proper student direction. There are various strategies for controlling misbehavior in the classroom, including the setting of rules, giving directives, punishment, creating a good relationship, and engaging instruction. The most effective strategy to use in my classroom is planning and engaging instruction. Providing engaging instruction would substantially minimize ill-behavior in classrooms. It involves guiding students in connecting classroom work with real life, generating a chronological order that practically relates to skill development for the students, and providing teaching materials that students deem to be educationally pertinent (Özdere & Karacabey, 2020). Additionally, classroom instructors should work on motivating learners since they need to understand the importance of a particular lesson, class activity, or even an assignment.
The capability of instructors to manage disruptive behavior is critical in the concept IDEA act. 1DEA and Public Law 94-142 stress more on improving the academic performance of students with special needs and those who are financially disadvantaged (Franklin & Harrington, 2019). I would provide instructional materials that can be used by all students, including those living with special needs (Franklin & Harrington, 2019). Additionally, I would select a technology that can be utilized by both able and disabled students while giving equal opportunities for all students to provide answers for a given academic task. For gifted students, I would provide tiered assignments that are relevant to all learners. Once all students have met the middle tier during the initial assessment, I would add a challenge for gifted students to provide further support. Notably, teachers should consider providing preferential seating, enhancing classroom lighting, and giving assignments in small, diverse groups for students with special needs and considerations. The strategy of behavior management applied should accommodate all students regardless of their classroom needs. Teachers should choose a universal strategy that will target all students.
