What is your advice about? Class Management
1: Don’t judge a pupil by their reputation – give them a chance to build a relationship with you.
2: Be consistent – if the rules say a break detention for doing X then it applies equally to ‘nice’ and ‘naughty’ students.
3: If you need to raise your voice to quickly address an issue that’s okay, but don’t forget to return to normal volume.
4: You may have a long list of school expectations/rules to follow, but it all boils down to good manners. Promote good manners and you’ll spend less time quoting rules.
5: Own up to your mistakes – you’re human. If there is an error on the board, make light of it or ask pupils to spot it.
