The Impact of Effective Classroom Management in Improving Preparatory School 5th Stage Students’ Performance in Writing Skill
classroom management is considered an essential part of the teaching and learning process. It refers to the methods, strategies and skills teachers use to maintain a classroom environment that results in the success of student's learning. Classroom management is connected to a process of organizing and conducting a class that includes time management, students’ involvement, student engagement, and classroom communication. Classroom management is the process of creating a democratic community and managing a successful class. Classroom management refers to the wide variety of skills and techniques that teachers use to keep students organized, orderly, focused, attentive, on task, and academically productive during a class. When classroom-management strategies are executed effectively, teachers minimize the behaviors that impede learning for both individual students and groups of students, while maximizing the behaviors that facilitate or enhance learning. Generally speaking, effective teachers tend to display strong classroom-management skills, while the hallmark of the inexperienced or less effective teacher is a disorderly classroom filled with students who are not working or paying attention. The key to successful teaching and management is gaining students cooperation in classroom activities and their engagement in the appropriate learning tasks. From this point of view, a teacher's main function is to play and orchestrate well-conceived activities that flow smoothly.
Among the four skills of English, writing is the most difficult to learn since it requires considerable conscious mental effort on the part of learners. However, in this modern interconnected world, communications among different peoples are increasingly carried out in aural/ oral and written English, making English a much more important language than it has been before. Writing can be improved mainly through writing, so we should always try to provide learners with a great deal of writing practice. It is thought that listening and writing are combined in such a way that the receptive skill of listening lends support to the productive skill of writing, and it is designed to be a small step in improving the writing of secondary learners to more advanced levels. Our learning goals: we as teachers of English believe in the magic of writing, in the ways in which writing is a fundamental tool in understanding and experiencing life at a deeper, more enriching level. We believe also that writing is an essential way in which we share with others our experiences as human beings. We believe in writing as an agent of change, and we believe technology is powerful tool for helping students uses their writing to effect this change. We also believe that our students’ capacity to use technology effectively widens the breath of their abilities and the reach of their potential.
