As this video segment shows, [classroom management] can be a way of helping students understand their behavior, their priorities, and the value of their relationship with their teacher.

School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment revealing five keys to more effective classroom management through consequences that help students better understand their behavior and priorities. The video segment is available to all educators as part of the weekly publication “Strategy of the Week.”

“Effective classroom management is more than punishments,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “As this video segment shows, it can be a way of helping students understand their behavior, their priorities, and the value of their relationship with their teacher.”

In this video segment, educators will see how using consequences instead of just punishments can help students make good choices, and get simple strategies for implementing them effectively, including:

  • No punishments, just consequences
  • Use consequences as a pause to get students’ attention
  • Organize consequences in a tiered hierarchy
  • Realize educators have no control over students
  • Use consequences to teach students that they have the power to choose
