8 EDSC 440S Presentation 3. Have a Room Arrangement that Facilitates Effective Classroom Management 5 Keys: Arrangement Congestion Teacher View and Access Material Access Student View and Access

9 EDSC 440S Presentation KEY 1: Arrangement Use a room arrangement consistent with your instructional goals and activities. –What are your favorite instructional formats? Decide first: Where will you conduct whole class instruction? – need table or lectern How will you organize student groups of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 –Where will you put TV/VCR/Projector (Electrical outlet? Cords out of the way?) Storage/bookshelves/work areas for you/students/TAs –If you have needs – ask! Replace damaged student furniture Have the chalkboard and bulletin boards you need

10 EDSC 440S Presentation KEY 2: No Congestion Keep traffic areas free of congestion. –Keep pathway clear of cords,boxes, etc. –Maintain easy access to pencil sharpener, trash can, doorways, bookshelves, supply areas, teacher’s desk, computers Class sets of texts (how will students retrieve, check for return?) Permission for sharpener and trash Easy provision of student supplies (include pencil bag w/highlighter, pen, pencil, etc in notebook as part of points) –What and how will you provide? (set of boxes w/glue, markers, tape, ruler, crayons, post-its) Sign in (who, what, when) and requirements for computer use (all work submitted, good citizenship grade, no absences)

11 EDSC 440S Presentation KEY 3: Teacher Access Be sure students are easily seen by the teacher –Students who have something to hide often sit at the back of the room –Control all parts your room by desk in one spot, lectern in another Make sure all students are easily accessible by the teacher –Don’t avoid students because you can’t get to them

12 EDSC 440S Presentation KEY 4: Material Access Keep frequently used teaching materials and student supplies readily accessible. Determine what students will retrieve versus what you will supply: –Class texts, notebooks, returned homework, art supplies, lab materials –Have space for students to store their notebooks –Assign responsibilities to reduce congestion and limit who has access –Post daily activities so students will know what is needed when they enter the classroom

13 EDSC 440S Presentation KEY 5: Student Access Be certain students can easily see instructional presentations. –Determine regular room arrangement by how often you use chalk/whiteboards, overhead/LCD projector, TV/VCR, and your most common instructional format. –Bulletin boards and Wall Displays Post student work, instructionally relevant material, decorative items, assignments, rules, schedules, a clock, school spirit, correct paper heading, and other items. Don’t overdecorate. Change displays periodically. Laminate when possible for reuse. Where to find materials? –Excellent student work (ask to keep!), business and industry, travel posters, school supply stores, magazines, Internet

14 EDSC 440S Presentation IF YOU HAVE TO FLOAT Have an honest discussion with teachers whose classrooms you share –Basic needs: Overhead projector! (even if you have to transport it all day) Permanent space on the whiteboards Permanent space on the bulletin board Drawer/cabinet/bookshelf space Sufficient desks –Create Travel Bag On wheels! W/files for student work and lesson handouts; transparency sheets and markers, chalk, pens, pencils, paper, paper clips, tissues, rubber bands Color code folders for each class –Assign responsibilities to students/TAs to assist you before class starts (w/role, arranging chairs, positioning projector, distributing materials)
