I have been teaching for about 20 years in public schools. There are two kinds of major duties as a school teacher: subject teacher and homeroom teacher. These two have been connected closely and unable to be separated from each other in my work place. I felt sorry for my class and my students especially at the end of each semester. So I would like to reflect my teaching management skills on the base of my substantial research.
Today, I narrowed my topic to “How to manage the classroom effectively and searched it in Google. I found out the related articles and flipped though some parts of them. Wang, Haertel, and Walberg (1993) said “Of all the variables, classroom management had the largest effects on students’ achievement. This makes intuitive sense students cannot learn in a chaotic, poorly managed classroom” As I have taught students, I need more knowledge about teaching and more skills. The concept of teaching requires more than what I defined in the past. I want to look for the concrete problem cases and solutions in the different situation. Then I will find out general principles for the effective classroom management. I expect that my topic will show enlighten to my establishing classroom management skills and philosophy.
