Classroom Management from the Beginning
Modified from LTRC Posted: 29 Aug 2013 01:24 PM PDT
School is about to begin for teachers and students of all ages. September is the perfect time for teachers to rearrange the classroom and set expectations for the the year ahead.

To avoid classroom management issues, preventative measures are useful. Agreeing on guidelines for classroom expectations are necessary for adult learners as well as children. Ask yourself the following questions:

How do you and your learners feel about:
  • chewing gum in class?
  • raising a hand to indicate a desire to speak?
  • leaving the room without asking permission?
  • using cell phones in class?
  • using (electronic) dictionaries while the teacher is talking?
  • speaking in languages other than English in class and during breaks?
  • sleeping in class?
  • talking during a test?
  • conducting outside business with classmates on school property?
  • being late for school?
  • leaving class early at the end of the day?
  • receiving homework?
  • contacting the teacher outside of school hours?

Each class is unique. It is important to get learner input on these behaviours in addition to voicing your own. When learners and teachers agree on classroom etiquette, the chances of facing conflict decreases.

Attendance

I think coming to class every day is very important and useful. Many newcomers to Canada have many problems in their new live. One of the main problem is knowledge of the English language. You can improve your English by attending classes. The lessons are free, but students are responsible to follow the rules of the Program.

1. You have to regularly come to school.
2. Do not come late for classes.
3. It is important not to speak with your classmates in your native languages.
4. Be friendly to your classmates, respect their cultures and traditions.
5. Be active in class activities.
6. When you will be absent, call the school. Phone number is 905-457-7740 ext.247.
7. Respect all the school rules.

FAMILY LITERACY –LIBRARY
Our Family Literacy Worker comes to our classroom every Monday to speak about new interesting books.
The library is on the Second Floor.
Everybody can take some books out for 1 week or maybe more time if you want. You only have to write your name on the card.
In the Library there are more than 10 books, books about English Class for example, Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing and others issues.
We have to care for books, because they are our skills to work in the course.
Mondays is the Book Club. Our class will read a book together.

Bus Tickets for Qualifying Students
As student we don’t have enough money for everyday fair to come the school. The school has an application form for students to assess their daily expenses and the kind of work to their families or students have a part time job, the school was given the free bus tickets to help their daily fair for those whose qualify. Some are not qualify because they can afford the daily fair. Some are getting free. But, by given the bus ticket having a limitation, you should come to school every day but if you absent more than 2days you can't have bus tickets. And you should have collected the bus ticket transfers to prove that you ride a bus. Every Friday teacher will collect the bus tickets transfers and she will give the new bus tickets.

FIRE EXIT

When there’s a fire, you will hear the fire alarm that announces you in danger. The sound from the fire alarm will be like: “bong bong bong”. So when you hear the sound like it, you have to leave the class as quick as you can, you will see the signs which are on the roof that let you know where the way to exit.You have to know for sure what floor you’re on at that time.

Remember that you CANNOT use the elevator; because in that case you can get stuck on the elevator. You have to use the stairs to get out immediately. The teacher, you and all your classmates must have the place where the teacher gathers all the students all the class after get out of the fire. It’s easy for the teacher to know all the students from the class are outside safely, no one get stuck inside the fire. If the teacher sees that someone is still on the fire, the teacher will tell that to firemen so they can come in to rescues that one.

Women’s Services

I think it is good to have services to help women that have problems in their family like with their husband and they don’t know the rules of Canada and also they are alone here. They can help single mothers to find a job and take care of their child.

I want to know more about these services.
