Understanding Classroom Behaviour and Situations

Understanding Classroom Behaviour and Situations

(p.1) 1 Understanding Classroom Behaviour and Situations
Classroom Management

Hue Ming-tak

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter encourages teachers to continue to expand their repertoire of classroom management and discipline strategies. It offers a broad view of classroom management and stresses its positive functions in promoting students' academic, social and emotional growth. An interactionist perspective is adopted and its theoretical framework is explained, with the cycle of interaction being used to highlight the complexity of classroom behaviour. Some types of classroom situations are then described, and their implications for good classroom management strategies are outlined. The discussion then shifts from whole-class to individual behaviour, for explaining which a framework of "ten important questions" is introduced. Finally, the chapter focuses on the importance of identifying patterns of classroom behaviour for effective management.

Keywords:   Classroom behaviour, Classroom situations, Classroom management, Discipline strategies, Interaction
