Mohali : Manav Mangal Smart School Mohali, in continuation to its earnest endeavour to provide its students the best in education and a student-friendly environment, conducted a workshop on ‘Classroom Management’ for its teachers.
The workshop was held with a view to aid the teachers to develop caring, supportive relationships with and among students and organize and implement instruction in ways that optimize students’ access to learning. Eminent resource personnel from Crest Counselling, Dr. Anupama, PhD in Life Skills, having worked as a Psychologist in PGI for five years and is a CBSE certified resource person, accompanied by Ms. Tanima, MA Psychology, dealt with the queries of the teachers and deliberated on issues of motivation, discipline and respect in the class. Crest Counselling had also organized an effective session on ‘Classroom Management’ for the Kindergarten teachers.
The creative presentation shown by the resource persons supported the discussion immensely and was accompanied by a role-play and various other activities. The faculty of the school discussed ways for better implementation of guidelines for effective teaching while reducing the effect of disruptive behavior by the students. The role of clear communication of behavioural and academic expectations as well as a cooperative learning environment was underlined. Emphasis was laid on planned efforts by teachers to transform a classroom into a community of well-behaved and self-directed learners. It reaffirmed the importance of promoting the development of student social skills and self-regulation. The teachers were guided about the use of appropriate interventions to assist students who have behaviour problems.
