Methodology in the English Class

Updated on October 12, 2011

There are no specific methods that will help you maintain order in your classroom. Sometimes everything goes smoothly, but at times, nothing seems to work. (Maybe there's something in the air...)

However, if you plan your lessons thoroughly and try to anticipate the feedback, the chances that you will maintain order are on a significant increase-curve.

The main thing is to get your students interested. If they are interested in the subject, they will be focused. If they are focused, it's less likely that you'll have discipline problems.

If someone is fooling around, you can just look at them, raise your eyebrow, touch their head, point your finger at the book, make a funny face...there is no recipe - just simple non-verbal communication. (this also falls down into the category of: Silent Method, which you will find greatly helpful for calming them down. The trick with whispering, for example - they have to be quiet in order to hear you.)

You have to feel it - and the best way to do it is to get to know your students.

"Teachers should guide without dictating, and participate without dominating." - C.B. Neblette

Anyway, you can take into consideration the following as well.

So, the best ways to organize your class are the following:
1) good preparation of lessons always helps. You always have activities that will keep some students quiet;

2) calm games after active ones that can help you calm down the students;

3) your students should respect you (if they trust you and think that you're great at your subject);

4) always keep your word if you warn your students about something or if you promise something;

In addition, you could read information about classroom management. I guess there's a lot of such in Internet.

"Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself." - Chinese Proverb

      This term I've even had trouble with some Adults in my classroom and could have used this advice many times over for them!
