THE TEACHER'S role IN CLASSROOM management
THE TEACHER'S ROLE IN CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
(A Study of Rimi College, Kaduna)
1.1 The Study's Background
Positive learning environments are created through classroom management. However, the concept of a positive learning environment is both wide and ambiguous.
Despite educators' worries about the nature of classroom learning environments, few recent research have looked into instructors' expertise or classroom management practises in positive learning environments. As a result, there is a lack of understanding about how teachers might promote both engaged learning and pleasant social connection. (Oakes, 2009).
Many writers and researchers have advised educators to take larger and more comprehensive perspectives on classroom management issues. (Jones, 2006).
“At its best,” Jones argues, “classroom management is not only a means of effective instruction; it has also become a vehicle for providing students with a sense of community and increased skills in interpersonal communication, conflict management, and self control.”
Nonetheless, a paucity of current empirical evidence has left educators in the dark about what knowledge and practises instructors use in building and managing socially complex learning environments. It's as if educators knew the plans for a house but not the tools needed to build it.
As a result, educators' efforts to give potential teachers with the necessary tools to realise their goals for creating a pleasant learning environment are limited. Against this backdrop, the researchers regard the topic of their study as an empirical issue deserving of examination.
1.2 Problem Identification
The difficulties that new teachers face in dealing with the intricacies of teaching and the social immediacy of the classroom are significant. Because of the dynamic nature of education, most teachers are constrained by classroom management. On the other side, the complexity of the classroom setting impedes instruction since beginning teachers believe that classroom management is difficult.
This is a barrier to effective positive learning environment planning. As a result, the topic: The function of instructors in classroom management is seen as an empirical issue deserving of inquiry.
1.3 The Study's Objective
The primary goal of this study is to investigate the function of the teacher in classroom management; the specific goals are as follows:
i. To investigate the role of the instructor in classroom management.
ii. Determine the impact of classroom management on student achievement at Rimi College in Kaduna.
iii. To investigate how classroom management affects development setting in Rimi College, Kaduna.
iv. To identify the issue impeding classroom management at Rimi College in Kaduna.
1.4 Importance of the Research
The importance of a study of this magnitude cannot be overstated; local government education departments, state and federal ministries of education involved in policy formulation and implementation, school management, incoming students, and above all, teachers and researchers will find this extremely important, especially if the findings are used.
The findings of this study can be used as a basis for enacting policies that will effectively improve the quality of classroom management and educational standards by local government departments as well as state and federal ministries of education engaged in policy formulation and implementation.
The findings of this study can also be used by school administrators to develop strategies for running their schools more effectively.
It should be highlighted that this research is of intellectual significance. As a result, teachers, students conducting research comparable to the current study, and other academics who may choose to utilise this work as a reference or a springboard for their own research will find this study valuable.
