Classroom Management Skills For Young Learners
The American TESOL Institute is a pioneer in world education. It has left a mark world wide because of its contribution in the field of education. However, we have come to realize that education does not only include academics, but classroom management also plays a major role at all levels, whether Primary or secondary. Classroom Management goes much beyond the classroom whereby the teacher is expected to meet the demands of varied students and also cater to their needs. The trainee teacher during the Teacher Diploma Course is trained to handle the students very tactfully, especially in a young Learner class. We believe that teaching is actually a People's Management Skill whereby in a very subtle manner the teacher creates a suitable learning situation. Most Primary teachers may be teaching from different books and following different techniques and methodology but all of them are confronted with the same problem, that of classroom management. So, in the Pre Primary Teacher training Diploma Course a lot of emphasis is laid on effective classroom management as this ultimately leads to effective teaching and learning. We, in the teacher certificate course understand and respect the fact that no Young Learner class can be similar and so are teachers are trained to be flexible and change, alter and adjust according to the needs of the students. A Young Learner teacher is expected to be equipped with the professional skills along the sensitiveness and flexibility of a teacher. The course equips the trainee teachers with a clear understanding of the intricacies and tactful handling of a Young Learner class. Emphasis is given to discipline, Classroom layout, different classroom activities, students' background, teacher-student relationship and last but not the least disaster management and emergency management, which is considered to be an integral part of classroom management.
