Classroom Management

How many of us have tried system after system of discipline in an attempt to attain and/or maintain control of the classroom and facilitate an effective learning environment, only to find ourselves frustrated and ironically powerless? Teaching with Love and Logic presents practical ways in which teachers and administrators can help their students become confident, responsible individuals, internalized in their discipline.

Examples of Classroom Expectations 

Here are Two Examples of Love and Logic Lists:

Classroom Expectations (Example #1)

  1. Feel free to do anything that does not cause a problem for anyone else.
  2. I teach when there are no distractions or other problems.
  3. I listen to students who raise their hand.
  4. I listen to one person at a time.
  5. Please treat me with the same respect I treat you.
  6. If someone causes a problem, I will do something.
  7. What I do will depend on what happened and what the person is willing to do to solve the problem.

Classroom Expectations (Example #2)

  1. I allow students to remain in my classroom as long as they do not cause a problem for anyone else.
  2. If they cause a problem, I will ask them to fix it.
  3. If they can't or will not fix it, I will do something.
  4. What I do will depend on the unique situation.
