Promoting Student Learning

Six topics to collaborate effective classrrom learning

Classroom Management

The two most effective ways to manage the classroom today:

1.Critical management skills are essential to gaining control of the classroom. It is import to gain the students attention by "communicating behavior expectations, and acknowledging appropriate behavior" (Price & Nelson, 2013, p. 139).

2. Challenging class and Monitoring Student behavior (Price & Nelson).

Teachers should constantly circle the classroom and interact with students to keep them on task as well as help keep them focused.

Good classroom management will keep students responsible, productive, and respectful throughout the academic school year. This good practice will carry on throughout students primary and secondary education as well as help them to become productive members of society. Once teachers set the classroom rules then students will understand what is expected of him or her throughout the school year.

Teacher Collaboration

Collaboration "is a style of interaction between individuals engaged in shared decision making as they work toward a common goal" (Burden & David, 2014, p. 334). Two important reasons for collaboration between Regular education teachers and Special education teachers are as follows:

1. To meet the needs of the students

2. To improve professional competence by engaging in professional development activities (Burden & David, 2014, p.335).

Teachers who use these best practices will have academic progress throughout the academic year with regular education students as well as with the exceptional child.
