Classroom Management is a method used by many teachers in order to help students be disciplined, organized and most importantly develop an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. It aims to control student's behavior and assist them to be more academically productive. Classroom rules implementation can be of great help to achieve a well-maintained class environment. It serves as a guide for the students to know their limitations and allow them to observe if their actions are appropriate or not. There are enormous numbers of rules which we can be utilized in order to maintain an orderly classroom. But the question is, what are the most effective classroom rules to be implemented? To answer the question stated, I personally listed some homeroom rules which I think would be the most effective ones in managing my class. First rule is the 'Respect begets respect', which means that if you want to get respect, you have to learn on how to respect others as well. This rule is not only applicable inside the classroom but also outside the school premises. It covers a broad idea but to simplify, every student needs to respect one another and accept the fact that everyone has differences which they have to deal with. The one mouth policy is under this rule. It is a very simple policy that aims to respect other people by simply listening when someone is talking. Second rule is to 'Have an optimistic outlook'. It is true that studying is a tough task as you have to comply with all the requirements needed within a specific time frame. With this rule, you are allowing the students to develop a positive point of view towards the task and activities given to them. It promotes a profound insight about the opportunities they can get with the struggles and difficulties they might encounter in doing such tasks. Having a positive mind will be of great help for them to see the advantages rather than the disadvantages as they undergo the learning process. Third rule is to 'Work hard and believe in yourself'. This policy focuses more on the students. It allows the students to keep motivated on every activity that they will do. This helps to uplift student's spirit and boost their confidence in achieving their own goals. Next rule is to 'Never be afraid to try new things'. With this rule, it is almost the same with the third one which supports the student’s growth and development. This rule encourages students to maximize the opportunities they can get in a certain task without minding to fail. It teaches students that failure is simply the opportunity to learn great lessons. Another rule is to 'Maintain cleanliness at all times'. It simply requires students to be responsible enough to keep the classroom in an orderly manner. Under this rule, students are also prohibited to do vandalism in any school property. It also helps them to manage proper waste segregation in order to maintain orderliness. The last rule is to 'Remember, observe and follow all the rules'. The last one is only used to remind the students with the following rules given in order to maintain cleanliness and promotes a well-managed classroom environment. According to an article, "The Key to Effective Classroom Management,"Edutopia: "In classroom where teachers used a series of techniques centered around establishing, maintaining, and restoring relationships, academic engagement increased by 33 percent and disruptive behavior decreased by 75 percent." It only shows that by simply implementing rules to manage a class can definitely support the learners to be more academically productive. Not only that, it also promotes a sense of responsibility which fosters the students to become active participants in their educational outcomes. As stated in a quote by Harry Wong, "Student achievement at the end of the year is directly related to the degree to which a teacher establishes good control of the classroom." It simply explains that as a teacher, we should let the students know not only the set of rules that they need to follow but most importantly, allows them to know the reason and importance of following such rules.
