That’s why every teacher has to have a few classroom management strategies at hand. Rob Plevin, a teaching expert who specializes in noisy class solutions and teaching techniques, suggests a couple of useful tips to get everything under control.
First, as a teacher, you shouldn’t ask “why?” “Asking a student why they have or haven’t done something is an extremely confrontational and threatening way of approaching and almost always results in more conflict,” he suggests.
Second, Rob urges teachers to create a diversion: for example, redirection of attention to a demonstration or something else happening nearby, a change in activity, or a story or joke. “Any off-topic question should do the job or, if you’re more adventurous, you could change your behavior and do something they aren’t expecting.”
