Oral warnings, parent teacher conferences, lunch or after school detention and meetings with the principal are common consequences for breaking classroom rules, according to the West Frederick Middle School teacher website. Using such rules helps effectively manage classroom discipline.
Good classroom management and discipline takes preparation. The best time to introduce classroom rules is at the start of the school year or semester. Having rules in place and involving the principal ensures that rules comply with local laws and school policies.
Student involvement, plus consistently and fairly implementing consequences, makes managing a classroom easier. Minimal but effective rules and consequences don't hinder learning, yet they keep classroom discipline, according to Scholastic.
