A resource for instructional and classroom management strategies…Gibion Makiwa

What instructional strategies can be used to engage students and minimize or reduce unwanted behavior?

I chose to focus on instructional and classroom management strategies because when I started my PSIII internship, I was a bit overwhelmed. I was facing classroom management challenges with one of my classes. The discussions I had with my teacher mentor led me to think that probably my instructional and classroom management strategies were not very effective. I started researching other ways to engage my students and reduce unwanted behavior. The resources that I gathered are not necessarily new to teachers, but I felt that if some key resources were available in one location then it would make them more accessible to others.

Gibion is currently finishing his PSIII internship in Lethbridge. He is teaching a combined Grade 2/3 class.
