CLASSMATES POST In this chapter we were taught about managing skills for structured learning in the classroom. Monitoring a students behavior is of the upmost importance for teachers to maintain control in their classroom. The way to monitor effectively is by: · Listening · Scan the room occasionally · Moving around the room periodically The room needs to be set up so everyone can be seen at all time and what they are doing. Now when dealing with diversity we are being taught that we must be sensitive with the cultural differences and with more challenging classes. Teacher are asked to make special effort to plan properly when they are aware they have student the display certain behaviors. Also, teachers must have their materials and class equipment stored away as well as having special materials and equipment that may be needed for special students. In some classroom setting there may be a need for an assistant to help the teacher. It is very important that teachers are able to switch form one thing to another when it is required.
