Classroom Management to Handle Behavioral Problems

A perpetual classroom management issue for teacher is figuring out how to successfully deal with behavior issues amongst students.  A lot of misbehavior issues start at the students’ home, so understanding that goes a long way toward using classroom management to fend off behavior problems.
Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, who is a seasoned elementary school educator based in Upstate New York, first takes a look at some ways to help you fix a student’s behavioral problems. These ways include:
1.     Make a List of Your Students’ Behavioral Problems
2.     Brainstorm All Triggers of the Unwanted Behavior
3.     Choose the Behavior You Want to Correct
4.     And More!

Janelle sums up her article thusly: “The targeted behavior that you are working on with the student will not disappear in one day -- it takes time. But if you notice within a week or so that the undesirable behavior that the student was exuding is less frequent, then you know that you are on the right track. Once the behavior has been eliminated, it is only then that you can tackle the next behavior that was on your list.”
