Understanding Component 2D: Managing student behavior

What is component 2D?

As future educators we need to be able to set high expectations, monitor our students' behaviors, and respond appropriately when students misbehave.Component 2D is focused upon setting high expectations & monitoring students' behaviors effectively. We need to be sure that our students understand the classroom expectations and goals, as well as what is expected of them while in our classroom.


Component 2D is important, because:
  • When our classroom environment runs smoothly, then our students can engage with the content they are learning.
  • Our future classrooms need to run like a well oiled machine, meaning they must be effective and efficient, and run smoothly.
  • Students must understand the expectations and standard of work required of them in the class.
  • Students need to feel valued, respected, and cared for even when they misbehave. We must not undermine them.


Possible artifacts

Artifacts for component 2D could include the following:
  • Examples of contact with parents or guardians regarding student behavior exhibited in class.
  • Effective classroom management skills are displayed by the teacher.
  • Classroom rules are posted and students understand said rules.
  • Student behavior charts
