Class Management

Are your students interrupting your lesson? It is time for you to learn Class Management.

Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly without disruptive behaviour from students compromising the delivery of instruction. The term also implies the prevention of disruptive behaviour preemptively.

One of the class management strategies is the “manage-mat”.

We split the student into small groups of around 4-6 students. Each table consists of a strong student and a weaker student. (Note: We are not allowed to tell the students which one of them is the weakest).

In this manage-mat arrangement, students are encouraged to participate in the class discussion, keep them engaged to the task. It is more manageable through groupings. Other strategies include: rally-robin, round robin, timed-pair share, etc.
