Question description

Your task is to create a developmentally appropriate classroom management plan for a selected age level within the early childhood program. Your plan should reflect your individual personality, teaching style, and philosophy of education. It should also define your goals as an early childhood education classroom manager and reflect your ability to synthesize the knowledge and insights gained from the readings, research, and discussions.

Your plan should include:

  1. A philosophical statement on your beliefs about classroom management, and a description of your teaching style.
  2. A description of your classroom design:
    • A description and rationale for the climate you intend to create and nurture in your classroom. Be sure to include the age range/level of the students (i.e. 4-5 year olds, pre-K program).
    • What strategies and techniques will you use to create an inclusive classroom environment for all students?
    • A description and rationale for the logistics of the classroom – furniture arrangement, seating arrangements, storage of materials, use of wall space, control of environmental factors, etc.
    • You may include a map to illustrate your classroom arrangement if you wish.
    • Classroom expectations:
      • How are classroom rules created?
      • What might classroom rules include?
      • How are classroom rules and expectations communicated to students, parents, and administrators?
      • Classroom procedures:
        • How will curriculum be selected? How are lessons structured? How do they start and finish?
        • How will technology fit into your plan?
        • How will you adapt educational activities to meet the needs of young children with diverse backgrounds?
        • How will student learning/progress be assessed?
        • Child Guidance:
          • What strategies and techniques will you use to use to promote self-discipline in young children?
          • How will you communicate your strategies with parents and other family members?
          • Conclusion:
            • Statement of how your plan reflects a positive learning environment that is developmentally appropriate.
You may choose to share this information in the form of a presentation for the families of your students or in the form of a final, written paper.

OPTION 1: Back to School Night!

Using the web-based presentation tool Prezi, create a slide presentation for families that provides an overview of your classroom environment, teaching philosophy and curriculum and addresses the points outlined above. For more information on Prezi, view What is Prezi? The Official Intro Video.

For example, you might choose to share all of this information with parents in the form of “A Day in the Life” of a typical (and fictional) student:
This is Monica. She is in our class. This is what a day in our classroom looks like for Monica.
8:00am: Monica arrives, the teachers greet her and she chooses a
book to read from the classroom library. (Picture of teachers here)
8:05am: As her friends begin to arrive and select books, Monica asks a friend to read with her.
8:10am: Morning Meeting: (you might include a song clip of a song you sing regularly on this slide and play it for parents)
8:15am: Calendar: Again, videos and pictures to demonstrate what this looks like in action would be great here!
Feel free to develop your own creative ideas for organizing this presentation, and use as much creativity as you like.
Your presentation:
  1. Must be a minimum of 15 slides.
  2. Must include photographs, illustrations and graphics or video examples of classroom layout and activities. Find examples of best practices on YouTube (and cite your source) or visit an exemplary program and take photos of your own!
  3. Must include a title slide with the following information:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted

    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted

    • Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought.
    • Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.
