Great tips in this class.!!
I learned the 4 types of classroom management & which I am, the closest to, & which is the best to be.
- The controller
- The guide
- The buddy
- The Apathete
I feel that I am the guide for the most part with some of the buddy attributes in there. I plan to be even more the guide with less buddy. The controller, I have many of the positive attributes. I aspire to focus on more of the positive sides of the three types, & be sure to never be a Apathete.
I have learned the 4 types of classroom management
I've learned what kind of instructor I want to be like and which ones I don't want to be like. Hope to us this in my new classroom.
I have learned what type of Instructor I am.
I have learned about the 4 styles and will see which one that I want to be more like and try this for this school year. I feel like based on the examples that I am more of a guide then I controller or buddy. But lets see how it goes.
I learned that while most students enjoy the Buddy, the Guide is the better choice. I Fell that I am more of a Guide with some of the Buddy attributes. I will strive to become more of a Guide and hope the classroom appreciates it.
I have learned that I need to be more confident about reprimanding privately. I tend to generalize the negative classroom behavior as a group offence, when I need to begin to specficially speak with students causing the negative behaviors promptly and privately. I think my classroom would run more smoothly with that. Also, I feel like I am in between a guide and buddy...just a mix.
I have learned how to improve my teaching style
I have learned that the best style of teaching is to be a guide to my students with empathy and compasion.
We all need to be objective as to who we are and who we want to be in the classroom.
I am more tuned in to the adult learner management style
I have a much better understanding on how to manage adults in a classroom setting
I learned the 4 teaching styles. Good stuff.
I leanred and got a better understanding of the 4 differnt teaching styles.
I have learned about the 4 styles of classroom management and have found that I most meet that of the guide.
I think I am a guide with a bit of buddy. The presentation did mention that adult learners prefer a friendly environment and I try to provide that while still maintaining high expectations and professionalism.
My goal is to be a guide and not a buddy by keeping my class organized and driven.
Good tips for incorporating buddy and controlling to end up with guide style.
I have had a lot reinforced during this module. Ensuring that I have a solid management plan is essential. I particularly like the idea of having a planned alternate activity in case of emergency so that student progress is not hindered.
I plan to lay out my specific expectations for all aspects of the class clearly at the beginning of the course, rather than in a more general way, and then specifically later on as assignments are due etc. That way when we get to individual assignments etc throughout the class the expectations will be a reinforcement of what was already laid out at the beginning.
