CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN ABEOKUTA SOUTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF OGUN STATE)

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     Background to the Study

Classroom management is a critical part of effective instruction. Effective classroom management which begins with efficient lesson planning preparation helps the teacher to teach and students to learn. Student thrives in the positive class climate and on the environment in which they feel safe, cared for and involved. From a student perspective, effective classroom management provides students with opportunities to socialize while learning interesting content. From a teacher perspective, effective classroom management involves preventive discipline and interesting instruction (Lang and Hebert, 1995). Similarly, classroom management is important because it keeps students motivated to continue their work provides appropriate instruction and feedback and managing student work and it can keep disruptive behaviours down to a minimum (Doyle, 2001).

The effective teacher is an extremely good classroom manager. Effective teaching and learning cannot take place in a poorly managed classroom. If students are disorderly and disrespectful, and no apparent rules and procedures guide behaviour, chaos becomes the norm. Well-managed classrooms provide an environment in which teaching and learning can flourish. Maintaining order in a classroom is a basic task of teaching (Doyle, 2001; Crandell et al, 1995). Many research studies have resulted that a conducive classroom environment promotes students academic performance (Crandell et al, 1995).

Classroom management strategies are a crucial apart of teachers’ success is creating a safe and effective learning environment for students. The purpose of education is to provide a safe friendly environment in order for learning to take place. Therefore teachers should know how to use and apply strategies that will allow and also help students to learn (Stage and Quiroz, 1997; Zuckerman, 2007).

Also, the purpose of this study is to gain awareness about classroom management strategies and compare classroom management strategies in public and private schools. The research provided insight to determine the effectiveness of the strategies used in both sectors.                           

1.2     Statement of the Problem

Classroom management based on coercion and behaviour control is linked to retaliatory behaviour disruption leading to conflict, punishment and substandard academic performance. Classroom management based on democratic, humanistic processes is linked with greater student participation, cooperation, and motivation to achieve academically. High schools are routinely managed by teacher control and student compliance models. Further research that supports the use of a democratic classroom management paradigm could help educators to understand the potential link with academic performance.
