Running a well-oiled classroom is something you should always strive to do. Whether it’s scheduling, planning, or creating adaptable lessons, a well-run classroom can seem like an overwhelming thing to strive for.

But with a few tips, teachers can use classroom management to run a well-oiled machine. Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator based on the East Coast, offers up some ways to keep your class running smoothly. Her tips include:

  • Set Expectations
  • Establish Routines
  • Check for Understanding

Janelle sums up her article thusly, in a paragraph entitled “Connect with Students”: If you want a smooth-running classroom, then you need to be respected by your students. The best way to do this is to connect with them. Learn about them and their interests. Ask questions and be supportive.
