Let MACGRADE help you manage your class effectively.
Effective teaching requires considerable skill in managing the myriad of tasks and situations that occur in the classroom each day. Skills such as effective classroom management are central to teaching and require "common sense," consistency, an often undervalued teacher behavior, a sense of fairness, and courage. These skills also require that teachers understand in more than one way the psychological and developmental levels of their students. The skills associated with effective classroom management are only acquired with practice, feedback, and a willingness to learn from mistakes. Sadly, this is often easier said than done.
There are three things to consider when managing a classroom and these are classroom arrangement, student behavior, and student academic work. While good classroom arrangement is not a guarantee of good behavior, poor planning in this area can create conditions that lead to problems. On the other hand, teachers should identify expectations for good behavior and communicate those expectations to students periodically. Good discipline is much more likely to occur if the classroom setting and activities are structured or arranged to enhance cooperative behavior.
Mark only students who are late or absent and the system will do the rest for you. Supports excusable absences.
Monitor and track student behavior in class to be able to address problems earlier and communicate expectations to the student.
Upload existing worksheets or test sheets or simply create one from the system itself with different assessment options to choose from.
No matter how many classes you teach, never forget a student's name again. Acknowledge a good behavior for a student from this module.
