Holding Students Accountable
Teachers strive to maintain a positive classroom environment that is well managed, and where student behavior allows for a safe learning environment in which each student can thrive. At times, however, students need to be redirected based on the behavior they are displaying. This can be accomplished in ways that reinforce positive behavior and help students to learn appropriate and productive ways to behave in the classroom.
Marzano and his team describe certain teacher behaviors as critical in classroom management; namely, appropriate levels of dominance on the part of the teacher, appropriate levels of cooperation, and awareness of high-needs students.
In this GPLC instructional topic, we will explore how teachers can provide strong guidance in student behavior.
