I think I can safely say that we all get into the field of teaching for overall the same reasons: we want to make a difference in the lives of our students, and we want to inspire them to do their best both in our classroom and for the rest of their lives.
However, if you are like many frustrated teachers, it may not have turned out as picture perfect as you imagined when you graduated from teachers’ college. Even though you really love to learn, really love to teach, and really want to bring out the best in your students, you may have started to dread going to school each morning because you are fed up, frustrated, and fearful.
Somewhere along the line, your students have become more defiant, less attentive, and off task. Simply put, you are slowly losing control of your classroom. It can be difficult to know who to turn to in this situation because you don’t want other people you work with, or for, to know about your struggles.
If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. In this day and age, classroom management has become much more complex and all the more important to ensuring success in the classroom. A huge responsibility that comes along with the job of being an educator is classroom discipline. Having effective discipline techniques and strategies can make or break the success you achieve as a teacher and of course, the success of the students you teach. The one thing that many teachers have in common is that at one time or another they have struggled with maintaining complete control of their classroom.
Nowadays, students seem more defiant, troubled, and zoned out than ever before. A variety of reasons may be the cause of this, but it is affecting their ability to learn in the classroom as well as your ability to effectively teach.
Bad behaviour is now a huge problem faced by everyone who deals with children, whatever the causes. So, do we just give up? Throw our hands in the air and accept that the problem is out of control? We cannot admit defeat because that would be failing the children whom we chose this career for. We just have to be more creative in the ways that we approach discipline and it will take more effort on our parts to reach each individual child.
