THE difficulties IN secondary classroom management AND control
THE DIFFICULTIES IN SECONDARY CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL
The purpose of this study is to identify classroom management and control issues in selected secondary institutions in the Oredo local government area of the state of Edo. The first chapter discusses the study's context and problems associated with classroom administration and control. Chapter two contains a literature review that emphasises the importance of classroom administration and control during the teaching and learning process.
The methodology employed in the research is surveyed and administered to respondents in Chapter 3. The fourth chapter discusses data analysis, interpretation, and presentation of results. The fifth chapter concludes with a summary of research recommendations for implementing effective classroom administration and control within the school system.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
The purpose of discipline in school is not to present a singular perspective on the correct definition of school discipline, but rather to provide the reader with contrasting viewpoints and attitudes from which to draw his or her own conclusions.
However, the discipline expresses consistency in any circumstance. There is always a set of laws and regulations necessary for achieving the situation's objectives. As a result, discipline is frequently defined as the order in which an individual advances towards achieving a goal that he has set for himself or that someone else has lawfully set for him; for instance, in a school setting, there are a number of rules that have been lawfully prescribed for students by the government or school authorities, and students are expected to follow these rules in order to achieve the school's goals.
All of the evidence presented indicates that discipline is a goal-directed behaviour. It is any action conducted to achieve the goals of a particular situation, organization, or institution.
Discipline is one of the most contentious issues in education; it is a topic of interest to many parents and educators who sense the need to adapt school values to a changing social environment, but are unsure of the most effective way to do so.
Discipline can be defined as the order in which a person advances towards attaining a goal that he has set for himself or that another person has legally set for him.
Discipline is the first rule of a successful school, because without it, school life cannot serve its purpose.
Discipline is defined as the structure of control that is self-imposed by students as opposed to being imposed by the instructor.
Discipline is defined as the highest level of control that is self-imposed by the students as opposed to being imposed by the instructor.
Discipline can also be measured by the extent to which students are self-controlled and willing to devote themselves to the teacher-assigned task.
Discipline as close to total liberty as possible for young stars to discover their own philosophy of behaviour and relief, or would it be prudent to seek to impose the same or the entire traditional standard as a necessary barrier against the dangers of social disruption?
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Class management and control contribute to the development of school and student discipline.
Consequently, the problems associated with the attitude will be investigated in this study.
Inappropriate classroom administration results in student disobedience.
Inadequate instructional tools may result in classroom management failure.
Class management is impacted by the dearth of qualified instructors.
1.3 SCOPE OF STUDY
The research will be limited to Idia College, Emotan College, Baptist High School, Akenzuwa Secondary School, Itoan Grammar School, and Oredo Girls Grammar School. Questionnaires will be designed and distributed as if they were distributed to the study's primary population.
1.4 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
This study's objective is to ensure that discipline and control of students are effective during the teaching and learning process. To achieve the above, among other things, the following will be examined:
It reveals the need for classroom management and control in secondary institutions in the local government area of Oredo.
It provides a better understanding of a teacher's accommodations by exposing the various methods and techniques involved in school management and control in order to educate teachers on how to implement effective classroom management and control.
1.5 SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY
Among other things, the significance of this study includes the following:
â to ensure that the employed teaching procedure is effective
– to guarantee students have an adequate understanding of the material
â to guarantee adequate discipline and control among student
â to assist a teacher in efficiently managing his or her class.
As many authors have defined discipline as self-control and willingness to accept order, one agrees with them that calm and order will be completely eliminated from the school if children and students are allowed to do whatever they want. In order for students to effectively acquire economic geography, mathematics, the English language, history, and psychology, there must be discipline among them.
Discipline is important because it involves all of the subjects on the school timetable, as well as the students, teachers, parents, communities, education officers, and policy makers in some way.
For example, the following generalisations can be made about the students attending school: they are well-fed and happy; they are easily distracted; they have a short attention span; they can turn off at will; and their arms are drawn from a wide area.
To accomplish this, the life of the school must be based on mutual respect for all of its members and an understanding of the challenges and problems they confront, as the principal and teachers are responsible for all aspects of working relationships within the school community.
The principal or head must appear to be all things to all people. His door must always be open to students, parents, staff, education, offices, and policymakers, and he must be willing to listen at any time to seemingly insignificant details that are, of course, crucial to complaints.
1.6 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The study's research queries will centre on the following. Does classroom management and control assist students in exhibiting positive behaviours? Is the uninformed teacher better equipped for classroom management than the trained teacher? Should class instructors be solely responsible for the discipline of children? Does a teacher's demeanour impact classroom management and control? Does the classroom environment impact classroom management and control? Do inadequate teaching tools result in deteriorating classroom management? Is it beneficial for teachers to pose questions during instruction? Does the instructor remain seated during writing assignments? Does a teacher's severity in the classroom accelerate students' learning? Does class discussion of teachers detract from writing assignments?
The table depicts the investigations conducted from October 2003 to March 2004 on a selection of courses at the school. That these untrained instructors do not take the impact of the above factors on their students seriously.
