h and 21st Century Classroom Management Pioneers
Diversity and Student Engagement
Education in the United States has always been culturally and linguistically diverse, though it tends to reflect the values, traditions, and customs of Caucasian American society (Charles, 2008). Today, it is becoming more so than ever before. Approximately 42% of the school population is comprised of minorities (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2007), including African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native. It is incumbent upon teachers to recognize the cultural nuances of each of these groups and how they might play out in the classroom.
Many students come from poor families and do not have the resources or the background for traditional educational readiness. Children bring into the classroom the hidden rules of the class into which they are born; if they are born into poverty or find themselves in situational poverty, they are likely to misunderstand the rules of success in a classroom because, for the most part, schools function on the hidden rules of the middle class (Payne, 1996). This can lead to classroom management issues. As teachers understand the rules of the socioeconomic classes within their classroom, they can teach students how to respond appropriately in a school setting. Teachers should seek an understanding of the values, customs, and lifestyles of those who are economically disadvantaged. It will help to build relationships if students know the teacher understands their situation. Interestingly, as Payne points out, "two things that help one move out of poverty are education and relationships" (p. 11).
Inclusion of Special Education Students
Special education students also have the right to public education. In 1975, the United States Congress enacted the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (1974) that provided for the free public education to all students with disabilities. However, these students were often placed in classes apart from the general school population. They rarely had any interaction with regular education students except for nonclassroom activities such as lunch and recess, and even then they were segregated somewhat. In 1997, the act was strengthened and given new meaning by enactment of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This act held that special education students should be placed into the least restrictive environment (mainstreamed) or included in the regular education program as much as possible. As a part of this inclusion process, teachers were expected to meet the needs of these students on an individual basis. All of these special needs students are tested and an individual educational program (IEP) is developed in conjunction with the parents, teachers, and the special education department to insure their success in the regular classroom. Teachers should be aware of IDEA and the IEP process, because they greatly affect the classroom (Nelson, Palonsky, & McCarthy, 2007).
Some students have difficulty controlling their behavior in the classroom through no fault of their own; rather, there are neurological dysfunctions which can cause loss of control and unresponsiveness to classic management techniques. Examples of these include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, fetal alcohol spectrum syndrome, and injury-related brain disorders. Teachers should be aware of those students in their classroom who fit into this category, know why they behave as they do, and seek alternative techniques of classroom management that are applicable to specific individuals.
Engaging Students in the Learning Process
The National Research Council (2004) theorizes that students engage in learning as a result of three basic conditions. First, students have to believe in their underlying competence to learn and their control over what they are learning; this is the I Can factor. "Students need to know what it takes to succeed and to believe that they can succeed" (p. 35). Their understanding of their competence and expectation of success is also tied to emotions that can either promote or interfere with their engagement in learning activities.
Second, students have to see some intellectual or social value to what they are learning; this is the I Want To factor. Students can be engaged (or not) anywhere on a continuum from believing they are working on an activity in school because they want to do so to feeling as if they are working because they have to do so. Wanting to work is related to self-determination; students may have the idea that an education is important or they take pride in their work or good grades are valued. Having to work is related to coercion. This, obviously, does not contribute to positively engaging students in learning; it can have the opposite effect of driving students away.
Third, students have to recognize their social connectedness to others who are in their learning environment; this is the I Belong factor, which is especially related to the "importance of meaningful relationships with adults and teachers who showed an interest in them [students] as individuals" (National Research Council, 2004, p. 42). Students know when their teachers care about them and this makes a difference in their willingness to be engaged in the learning process. Interestingly, the older students get, the more likely they are less engaged in learning (Brewster & Fagan, 2000). As far as a teacher is able, addressing these three conditions will help, though not guarantee, students increase their active engagement in the learning process and see success as a student.
Although the classroom contains students with many different learning circumstances, there are general practices that teachers can follow to help motivate their students and engage them in the learning process. Most students are eager to learn and it is up to the teacher to enhance these feelings (Good & Brophy, 2003).
Know the students.
The more teachers know about their students, the better they can meet their needs. What are the students' interests and desires? How do they best learn? What is their learning or developmental level? What type of activities will spark their interests? What is their attention span, as individuals and as a collective group? All of these factors should be taken into account when seeking to motivate students to learn or to engage them in learning.
Capture their interests.
Once a teacher knows the students' desires and background, it is important to arouse their curiosity in what will be presented (Brewster & Fagan, 2000). A good anticipatory set will hook the students into wanting to know what comes next. This statement or activity will set the tone of the lesson and the new content. This can be done by posing questions, riddles, problems, etc. This is a good opportunity to draw students into the learning process; a lesson itself can be built around their cultural diversity.
Make it relevant.
What practical needs will the material fulfill? Can students use it in their personal lives? Activities and information should be meaningful and relevant to real-life (Brewster & Fagan, 2000). Teachers should explain why it is important to learn the material and should make abstract material more meaningful by making it concrete and visual. Why is this knowledge useful? It is important to relate and bridge the new material to previous knowledge.
Vary the pace and activities.
Stimulate attention by having students actively involved in the experience through cooperative learning, group projects, question and answer, etc. Ensure that the activities are challenging, but achievable (Brewster & Fagan, 2000). Most students have an attention span of 15−20 minutes. After that time limit, interest is lost. Therefore, a good teacher will change the learning experiences every so often. The more students are actively involved, the more they will learn. Cooperative learning, projects, and other interactive activities ensure that students will continue to be engaged in learning.
It is helpful to break the instruction into small segments and make sure understanding is accomplished at each step. Do not go on to new material until students totally comprehend each part, especially if the material is complicated in any way.
Praise and reinforcement.
Students do well when they receive honest and sincere praise. This praise not only helps students work harder to learn the material, it also encourages them to behave appropriately. The type of praise used is also very important. In the lower grades, classwide positive recognition works very well. At the upper grades, individual recognition is much more effective. This praise can also be utilized outside the classroom. Positive phone calls to parents or notes home are very effective.
Assessment and adaptation.
The teacher should always be aware of what is happening in the classroom. Adaptations may be needed to meet the students' needs as they are observed. The teacher is constantly adapting, checking for understanding, reflecting, monitoring, and observing reactions. Student body language is very important and must be taken into account. Truly, the teacher should have classroom presence and eyes in the back of the head (Burden, 1995).
Teachers in today's classrooms need to be aware of the needs of their students and know the best way to reach each individual. Cultural, socioeconomic, and developmental diversity must all be taken into account as learning depends upon their skillful management by a teacher. Understanding how to engage students in the learning process can directly impact the quality of the educational environment in the classroom.

I really need your help I know it's Saturday but I have two other assignment that I am working on please help her is the post for them.
For this assignment, choose the age group that a majority are comfortable with using Grades K-8. Choose one of the following three scenarios:
1. Gina is a docile student who socializes little and is nondisruptive. However, she rarely completes an assignment, especially one that is her part in a group project, which frustrates her teammates.
2. Susan participates in class activities and completes her homework. However, she talks constantly and is disruptive during lesson time.
3. Jerry, larger and louder than his classmates, wants to be the center of attention and has found his niche in clowning around and intimidation. He makes wise remarks, talks back, and is known for verbally destroying his classmates, who alternately find him comical and frightening.
As the teacher, write a letter to the student's parents describing the problem, its ramifications for the student and the classroom, and your proposed solution. Seek their support.
1. Post your letter to the CLC group for evaluation. Each CLC group member should critique the others' letters.
2. Redo your letter based on CLC feedback.
3. Write a reflection of 250 words on the process. What did you learn from the process that will help you as a classroom teacher?Use solid writing skill in the construction of your letter and your reflective paragraph. Each member of the group should submit his or her initial and adjusted letters, as well as the reflection, with a title page.

This is my letter.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith,
My name isXXXXX and I am the 8th Grade Math Teacher at Westover. I wanted to take some time to communicate a few very important matters regarding Jerry’s performance in my class. More importantly, I would like for us to find ways to work together so that all of us can witness and experience the success that Jerry is capable of. It is still early enough in the semester for us to address these matters so that his progress is not impeded.
Observations and Concerns
Jerry is extremely talkative and tends to initiate and participate in conversations while classroom instruction is taking place. I have spoken with him about this and he agreed that he would not continue to be disruptive. Additionally, engaging in conversation during instruction does not give him the opportunity to grasp some of the more challenging concepts we are covering and ultimately he ends up needing additional assistance because he was not paying attention. During our last conversation I told him that my next option would be to change his seating arrangements and place him in an area that would allow him to focus and not disrupt or be disrupted. He asked for a second chance and I agreed. Please reiterate to Jerry the importance of paying attention in class, taking good notes and not speaking outside of group discussions unless it is relevant to the task at hand.
Also, XXXXX XXXXXkes to be the center of attention and makes many outbursts including cracking jokes which delays my ability to instruct. This also affects the other students who are paying attention. Last week, I administered a chapter review examination and his score was 47%. This score has created a letter grade drop from a C- to a D. Jerry asked if he could make up the exam and I told him he could not. The issue lies with him paying attention and not being disruptive. Once he is able to resolve these issues, I am hopeful that he will bring his math grade up significantly. I offered to provide him with some tutoring services during the after school program sessions and he declined. I am informing you in advance that if the disruptions continue, his seat will be moved and he will be isolated from the rest of his peers. There were also two other students that he tends to engage in disruptive behavior with and since I have spoken to them, their behavior has improved. Jerry on the other hand tends to be inconsistent in his attempts to stay on track. Let’s plan to have a conference in about two weeks so we can discuss where we are and next steps if necessary. Again, Jerry can reverse his current grade situation before it goes down any further. I appreciate your assistance in this matter and I look forward to our follow-up conversation. I am available before school on Tuesday & Thursdays from 7:15 am to 7:45 am and after school on the same days from 3:00 – 4:00 pm. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns and let me know which time will work best for you.
8th Grade Math Teacher

Building Trust Relationships
Good teacher−student relationships are essential to ensure a positive school and classroom atmosphere. It is a commonly held axiom within the education field that most students "don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care." The most essential element in this relationship is to convey to students that they are important and valuedas individuals.
Developing Relationships With Students
Teachers meet their students on the first day of school and neither knows much about the other. First impressions are very important. As students arrive into the classroom, the teacher is prepared, excited, and enthusiastic. The room is ready for them. The teacher is dressed as a professional and has developed the lesson plan for the first day. The feeling of warmth and friendliness is a major factor in developing this trust relationship. Classroom management techniques immediately come into play. The seating arrangement has already been planned and students are instructed how to find their proper seat. Class begins immediately, and the entire period is spent as the teacher has planned.
Most students have had positive relationships with past teachers and will tend to carry this feeling over to other teachers. However, it takes time to develop a trusting relationship with someone, especially if the student has had a poor experience in the past. The key is to demonstrate to all the students that respect for them, and concern for their welfare and success, is utmost in the mind of the teacher. Gone are the days when respect was give automatically simply due to the title teacher. Respect has to be earned. As the year progresses, good relationships will develop if the teacher adapts these guiding principles (Wong & Wong, 1998) laid out in the following paragraphs:
Students are looking for someone they can respect, a solid role model. This starts with appearance. Teachers' personal hygiene and professional attire send a message to everyone; clean, neat and professional should dictate a teacher's appearance. Each situation and school is different, and teachers should dress according to the environment and the activities which will take place. For example, a primary teacher who is working with students in activity areas and who tends to be engaged in rug activities would wear clothing different from what would be worn during parent/teacher conferences. Teachers do not have to wear a suit or dress every day, but good teachers know what is appropriate for the situation and activities. Finally, it behooves teacher candidates to be aware of the school administration's policy for teacher appearance.
Personality and Emotions
Personality and emotions also play an important part in developing relationships with students. A calm consistent personality is an important asset. A well-run lesson is one in which the teacher displays a variety of presentation skills including voice modulation, and appropriate body language, gestures, and movement. Tone and verbal expressions should be appropriate for the setting and the situation. A good teacher is also a good actor or actress; this helps to keep the lesson exciting and interesting. Teachers can express disappointment in actions taken by their students, but anger and ridicule should never be displayed. Teacher temper tantrums are completely out of the question; they tend to raise the level of anxiety which can lead to students becoming angry and causing even greater disturbances. Professional ethics and demeanor should be practiced at all times.
Good communication skills are important when developing relationships with students. When speaking, teachers should be conscious of speed, volume, diction, and the use of idiomatic expressions. Student facial expressions and other mannerisms will convey to the teacher how well the lesson or presentation is being accepted; changing the method of delivery may be needed to maintain interest. When using the chalk board, overheads or hand outs, ensure spelling and grammar is correct. The size of the font should be such that everyone can read it comfortably. Any written correspondence should, on its face, appear professionally written. People judge teachers by what they perceive and what they receive from the teacher. Teaching in a school where a second language is the norm, letters may need to be sent in other languages. A good teacher knows the audience and makes appropriate adaptations (Amatea, 2009).
In some ways, a teacher is much like a second parent. Friendliness is needed, but too much familiarity can be harmful to the student and to the teacher. Teachers should seek to know as much as they can about individual students so that they can better formulate lessons to meet their varied needs. Likewise, students want and need to know the teacher as a person, not just a figurehead in class (Burden, 1995). A professional working relationship is established with boundaries between students and teachers. Personal stories and experiences can be shared with students but teachers should only use these when proving a point or enhancing a lesson.
Care and Compassion
Students have many experiences outside of school which can lead to an inability to concentrate in school. As trust relationships grow, teachers should become more and more aware of any change in attitude or behavior which might give them clues that something is wrong or different. It is important to let students know of a willingness to help, but not to pry, as well as to let them know how much you care about their well-being and their future. Students will relate incidents that they want to share, but others may be embarrassing and troublesome; teachers should know when to leave well enough alone. Finally, when teachers use the words please and thank you, and flash a warm smile, students know their teachers care for them.
Beyond the Classroom
Teachers should observe students outside the classroom. Many students behave differently when they are in a familiar environment with their peers. Leadership qualities may be displayed during lunch or recess that are not apparent in the classroom. Extracurricular activities and sporting events also are an opportunity for teachers to see student talents and abilities in another venue. The mere presence of a teacher at a student event builds trust relationships as students perceive that teachers are really interested in them. This is also a golden opportunity to meet and speak with parents (Canter, 2006).
While good teachers are supportive of students and concerned about their success and well-being, they should also exhibit the attitude that they are proud and pleased to be a teacher. Positive and high expectations of one's self will help create trust relationships with students.
Working With Parents
Parental support is vital for solid educational programs. Many students indicate that the two most important and influential groups in their lives are their parents and their teachers. Good teachers work at promoting a positive relationship with the parents of their students, so that students can succeed and parents can participate in that success. Some of the ways teachers can promote parental involvement include:
Building trust with students is very important and takes time. Trust between teacher and students can make or break a year for both. Parents can help in many ways as long as the teacher has reached out to them and drawn them into the classroom. Parents and teachers could consider their relationship to be a partnership formed to help the success of the student (Canter & Canter, 1991).
