Classroom management refers to teachers’ different techniques and abilities to keep the students focused, organized, orderly, and productive academically during a class. Classroom management is one of the essential skills for teachers to acquire (Macias, 2018). It is vital to study the topic of classroom management to get equipped with the necessary skills to manage students in a class. When a teacher is familiar with classroom management techniques, suitable learning conditions exist for both the students and the teachers. The discussion below will outline the effectiveness of the class classroom management.
The curriculum teaches that it is crucial to build relationships with students. Being close to students creates trust in their teachers, and whenever they have an issue, they will feel free to speak out (Wattanawongwan et al., 2021). Some students may feel that their fellows do not give them attention in a class. If the teachers provide attention to such students, they will feel that there is someone there for them. The course is essential for students as it makes them aware that they will require to engage more with their fellow students as teachers do engage all with no discrimination.
The course helps future teachers understand a multicultural classroom. A multicultural classroom is where students from different religions, cultures, and races study together. Teachers need to understand multicultural education and develop the necessary attitude (Debbag & Fedan, 2020). In a multicultural classroom, the teacher should know the different cultures of the learners so as not to offend anyone when giving an example in class.
The course can be improved for future students in various ways, such as being taught how to handle all students regardless of their origin, sex, or race. Future students should be taught how to communicate so that the whole class will feel more involved. For example, if the class entails students from different cultures, the teacher should use examples from all the cultures.
In conclusion, the class ‘Classroom Management’ is of great help to future teachers. The future teachers get equipped with knowledge on how to relate with the students. The class teaches the potential teachers various ways to make the class manageable and productive. When future teachers are equipped with skills to connect with students, there will be an excellent learning environment for both the students and the teachers.
