Verbal Cues: Some misbehavior just needs the use of non-verbalcues by the educator to avoid disruption. Using eye contact with a misbehaving learnermay be enough to stop them engaging in an unwanted behavior. Moving closer to thechild may also be effective. Come up with hand signals that give the learner analert to stop talking instead of raising your voice to gain the desiredbehavior. Discuss these cues with your students before you apply them in orderto know exactly what they mean and how the student should react to them. (Psychology Campus, 2008)Monitoring learners: Monitoring learners closelyis another strategy that teacher can use. Learnerswho feel they are in the presence of an educator are less likely to misbehavethan those who assume they are not being watched.
It is recommended that the instructorconstantly circulates throughout the classroom to check on students’ progressand give quiet suggestions in the event anyone is struggling with their work.This keeps children focused on the task at hand and keeps them from fallingvictim to distractions that cause any problem behavior.Role model: Educator should model anappropriate behavior toward her learners, attempt to be careful not to send vague messagesto them about the behavior she expects. If you indicate impatience, if you areunable to consider your child’s feelings, or you have quick anger manners, itis tricky for the class to show the positive behaviors you ask them for. Try topresent a high level of patience, organization, and energy. Whether you expect yourlearners to utilize low voices, you must speak at that volume also. Staying calm,cool, and collected is the key.
Classroom meeting: In casea numerous part of students is battling with the same problems or through aspecific issue gets out of hand, call for a classroom meeting. Make it clearwhat is unsuitable for the learners’ behavior and why. Take the opinion of yourlearners, and ask them for suggestions and ways to enhance those circumstancesalso to keep it from happening again. This strategy gives learners a chance to engagein the problem-solving process and give their own ideas on how to stop problem behavior.When a learner misbehaves, it might seem natural to respond negatively or showyour dissatisfaction. Instead, take a deep breath and attempt to handle those circumstancesas calmly as you can. Putting a stop to this problem in an angry way will onlypass your negative feelings to other learners who will easily feel the absence ofcontrol.
