Mark Barnes, the Founder of Times 10 Publication, explains 4 crucial lessons new teachers never learned which may impact our teaching career more than anything we ever learned in college. But for me as an experienced teacher, it is really important to note and reflect on the 3 items below as these really represent the urgent reform that education needs.
1–Rethink discipline. Almost everything you’ve learned about classroom management is wrong. In methods courses and pre-service work, you were most likely taught some kind of assertive discipline technique or, worse, zero tolerance policies. Maybe you were told that one size fits all, when it comes to rules. As a new teacher, you must build rapport with students, and you’ll never do this by writing names on the board, handing out detentions or demerits, or sending students to the office the first time they talk back.
The best plan is to talk to your students about building a learning community built on mutual respect. Tell them there are no rules and consequences and that everyone should expect to be treated properly and fairly at all times. When issues arise, deal with them individually and privately. Never embarrass any student. Stick to the plan of kindness and mutual respect, and you’ll never need Do’s and Don’ts.
