Classroom Management

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter highlights the importance of good peer relationships in students' personal growth and academic success. It also describes how students' conceptions of friendship change from primary to secondary education and outlines the characteristics of popular students. Some basic practices for promoting students' popularity are given, with a practical framework for helping students with peer problems to take a new perspective and develop new patterns of behaviour for improving their relationships. Lastly, teachers are recommended to take a proactive approach in an attempt to promote positive peer relationships among students in the classroom by developing strategies in the following areas: teaching social-emotional skills, conflict-resolution skills and problem-solving skills; getting students to learn in groups; and creating a classroom climate of positive peer relationships.
