How to Manage a Classroom

Saniyyah Khalilallah


Through this workshop you will learn a short guide that will provide skills on how to manage a classroom. A diagram will be provided to explain the key components of a normalized classroom. Everyone in the classroom, children/students and teachers, have a responsibility and play an important role in the environment. Teachers are the role models and set the tone for the way the classroom flows. Having a prepared environment and practicing inclusion techniques are just a couple ways to exhibit classroom management skills. By the end of the workshop there should be a clear understanding of how to run a successful classroom that provides a safe environment for the students.
