"I do not think "classroom management" can erode classroom communities. It is our job as educators to manage these communities effectively and not give the students complete control of the classroom. Maybe "classroom…"

"Emily, your comparison of these two classrooms reminded me immediately of my two 10th grade classes. One is known as the "bad class"--students are louder, sometimes physically moving around the room, and talk during independent work. The…"

Marcy Prager replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"I totally agree with Jennifer. If the teacher is positive and enthusiastic, the students will love to do the work. Even when my students are talking in class, I find them talking about the projects they are involved it."

Marcy Prager replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"I agree with William that there has to be a balance between the classes you have seen. In elementary school most teachers have opted to use the "Responsive Classroom." The students write their goals and then the teacher tells them that in…"

Meira Levinson replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"I would agree that strictness vs. laxness are really uncorrelated w/either engagement in learning or depth of student-teacher relationship. I would definitely agree with William that many students are grateful to have clear, fairly enforced, and…"

Jeff Williams replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"Good question. I believe that being "strict" or being a "good classroom manager" has nothing to do with having a non-constructivist - or traditional - classroom. Therefore, we need to set the definition of "strict". Do…"

Suzie Nestico replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"I have to agree with both Alex and William on this. Being strict in today's classroom does not necessarily mean the classroom is orderly and students are disengaged. Ultimately, the two environments should be and can easily be combined. When we…"

William Johnston replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"This is a great question Emily, and I think that I would have to put myself in the middle of these two styles, but definitely more toward the strict management end of the spectrum. In thinking about the two classes that you describe, I think each…"

Emily Trono replied to Emily Trono's discussion "Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?
"Honestly, I am unsure to what extent students are learning; I have only seen assessment results from one class, and what I might be interested in measuring (engagement, content, etc.) is not completely captured in that assessment."

"Any sense on how much the students are learning in each class?"

"Classroom management" vs. Relationship Building - A necessary dichotomy?

I'm interested in creating an environment that enables and empowers student learning. A question I've been pondering is: In what ways can "classroom management" build and erode classroom communities? In what ways can "classroom management" build and erode a teacher's relationship with individual students?I've recently have had the opportunity to observe two classrooms that functioned very differently - in one, explicit, enforced expectations created (or at least appeared to create) a fairly…See More

"My initial reaction is that this seems like a productive, insightful activity. But it is possible for a great activity in theory to have different student understanding outcomes than intended. How do you feel the students responded to this activity?…"
