T (Rocio): What is classroom management?

• Classroom management refers to how teachers structure their learning environment to


prevent, or minimize, behavior problems.

• Discipline refers to methods teachers use after students misbehave.

• Classroom management is prevention-oriented, while discipline is control oriented.

• The goal of classroom management is to structure the classroom environment to


maximize student attention and minimize disruptive behavior.

Video- Next, we are going to show a video of examples of classroom management techniques.
In the video there is an opportunity for the class to take a quiz question.

S: Students will answer the quiz question. Then the video continues.

(Next Slide)

T (Rocio): Here are some classroom management strategies for a productive learning
environment for students

• Arrange classroom furniture so you can easily monitor students’ behavior for signs of
inattention, boredom, and misbehavior from any point in the room.

• Make sure there is enough room in between so students can move from place to place
without disturbing their classmates

• Keep interesting instructional materials out of sight till until you need them

• Separate friends who tend to misbehave and get off-task and ones who dislike one
another

• Assign misbehaving students to seats close to your desk

T (Rocio): At this time, can we have the class pick a shoulder partner to discuss classroom
management techniques from the slides?
Lesson Plan 6

S: Can we have a volunteer talk about the classroom techniques from each group?

T (Jennifer): Who is William Glasser?

• William Glasser is an American psychiatrist and the developer of the Reality theory, also
known as The Choice Theory.

• He was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1925

• Dr. Glasser founded The Institute for Reality Therapy in 1967, which was later, renamed
The Institute for the Control Theory, Reality Therapy and Quality Management in 1994.
But in 1996, the institute was renamed again finally as The William Glasser Institute.

• Glasser’s ideas focus on personal choice, personal responsibility, and personal


transformation.

(Next Slide)

T (Angie): What is the Choice Theory?

• Glasser theorized that behavior is a choice made by an individual, based on his or her
feelings and needs. In others words, the power lies within each person to determine
how he or she will respond to the demands of the social and physical environment.

• Choice theory suggests that teachers cannot directly control the behaviors of students,
since students choose how to react to their feelings. Teachers can help identify the
circumstances that trigger their behaviors, which in turn empower them to change their
reactions to those feelings.

• Video: William Glasser's Choice Theory - YouTube.html

T (Angie): Key Concepts for the Choice Theory

• Choice theory holds the five core concepts that may lay a foundation for classroom
management and discipline:

• Basic Needs, such as survival, love and belonging, power, freedom and fun.
Lesson Plan 7

• Quality World, which includes people, activities, values, and beliefs that are most
important to each human being.

• Reality and perception, which suggest that people act, based upon what they
perceive to be real.

• Comparing Place, which builds on belief that the purpose of all behavior is to
create a match between what people perceive and what they want

• Total Behavior, which has four components: acting, thinking, feeling, and
physiology.

T (Angie): Does anyone in the class have an opinion or comment on The Choice Theory?

S: Students respond.

(Next Slide)

T (Jennifer): Implementing Choice Theory in the Elementary classroom

• Teachers must share with their students that they have a say in what they learn and
how they learn it. In order to have their “say” students must learn to make choices.

• A great way to convey the message to teach the theory concept is by teaching through
the use of skits or role-playing.

• Skits help in teaching students about such concepts as building trust, making
connections and responsible choices, making decisions, socializing, acquiring knowledge
to using knowledge, caring and respecting and every student can succeed.

T (Angie): We will now ask for five volunteers, for the following activity, to help the students
understand how the choice theory could be implemented in class (which is a skit).

T: Teachers will pass out the skit to five students to read skit out loud to class, with the
intention of giving students a clear idea of the choice theory used in a classroom.

S: Students will now read the skit, to create a clear image of how the choice theory could be
used in a classroom.

T: The class will now have a short discussion about the skit
