Checklist for Management and Discipline Techniques
Use this checklist after each assignment for continued improvement. Choose the items which you would mark as “seldom,” to receive your special attention during your next assignment.
¨ I attempt to recognize and identify problems before they develop.
¨ I believe I cannot sit at my desk and still know what is happening in my classroom.
¨ I operate on the assumption that the student wants to do the right thing.
¨ I keep a neat room and personal appearance to give the students a sense of responsibility and orderliness.
¨ I do not lose my temper.
¨ My standards are obtainable and realistic to maintain high work and behavior standards for the age group.
¨ I attempt to build the ego of each student.
¨ I move about the room observing the effectiveness of directions given. By noticing difficulties and giving assistance, I avoid many behavior problems and provide an effective learning atmosphere.
¨ I praise the students as a group and individually for good work.
¨ I never argue with a student before the class.
¨ I do not discipline or embarrass students in front of the class. I treat them as I would want to be treated.
¨ I do not use sarcasm in disciplining students or make major issues out of trivial offenses.
