Remember Names

One of the most effective techniques in classroom management is building trust. When teachers place emphasis on understanding their students and their goals, they can adapt their teaching experience to gain their trust. The first step to establishing trust is by recognizing and remembering student names. Make sure to practice the correct spelling and pronunciation when studying your students’ names. If you make mistakes, you can make light jokes about them and encourage your students to correct you. Students will eventually feel more comfortable and settled in their teaching environment as you grow to be familiar with their names.

Provide Positive Reinforcement

Students do not know how well they are performing in a class until someone acknowledges it. In this case, the teacher must consistently recognize when good progress is being made and let the student know about it. Making calls home can be helpful – in addition, you can connect with your student’s parents. If the parent hears about the good performance, that information travels to the student as well.

Reward Diligence and Effort

A motivating classroom environment is where hard work and consistent effort is valued. Many students respond well when their hard work is rewarded. You can select an outstanding student in the class each week to highlight their performances and efforts. Students in turn, will see that individual effort is recognized and they will be more motivated to continue their learning progress. The more you showcase good work and effort, the more engagement you can get from the students. The increased engagement can help improve their motivation and commitment to their learning goals.

Create an All-Inclusive Learning Experience

A good learning environment is not rigid but is flexible and ready to be adapted to any situation. There are many challenges and tasks you have to navigate through on a daily basis. Some students may experience personal problems that may be outside your control. In these cases, it is important to adjust your learning plan for those students to accommodate them.
