Effective techniques for classroom management include setting clear expectations for student behavior and creating achievable learning goals for the students. Another good method for managing student behavior is to maintain a close and regular physical proximity to all of the children by moving about the learning area continuously.
Setting clear expectations for behavior helps students understand exactly how they need to behave and eliminates confusion about what is and is not allowed. Creating achievable learning goals builds student self-esteem by clearly demonstrating to the students that they are making progress. Maintaining a close physical proximity to the students ensures that the students are regularly under the direct supervision of an authority figure, providing more opportunities for them to ask for help.
