Discipline in the classroom


For me, discipline is ways of behaving, whether good way or bad way, are different forms of attitudes. Have discipline, means to behave in a certain way, follow the rules or order.


Definitely, in every classroom must have discipline, which is set by the teacher and is the one who must try to enforce it.

There are breaches of discipline when rules established by the teacher are not met and is said to be an undisciplined student for not behaving well so you have to draw attention to him or her.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to teach, but I definitely would love that in my classroom has discipline and a positive environment.

I remember one case where a teacher had an incident with a classmate, in fact, several teachers had problems with him because he was too restless and always was talking, looking at the phone, drawing things in his book, and he never paid attention to classes.

Teacher: Please silent Carlos

Student: I’m not doing anything!

Teacher: I’m seeing you talking, if you do not feel like being here; leave the room please, because you are distracting your classmates.

Student: I am working!

Teacher: Show me your notebook…

Student: Here it is!

Teacher: Where is all that we have worked today?

Student: Ah! I have hurt my hand. I cannot write. It hurts me.

Teacher: Ok, tomorrow, I want you to bring me everything we did today; otherwise, you will not enter to the class and sit here in front of me for now.

Obviously is a student who needs lots of attention for his behavior. I think that what the teacher did was the right thing, because if the teacher had kept saying things, they were not going to get anywhere.

To teach, I’m seriously thinking I need to take courses that cover these topics, so I know what to do in these cases.


Bloom’s Taxonomy

For me, the Bloom´s Taxonomy is like the way I can assess the degree that have my students.  (It start with a level of knowledge and end up with a level of assessment), in this way I can know if my student has reached a level of assessment of understanding in any topic or if he is still in a lower level of comprehension. It can be very useful for creating more specific lesson plans, make goals, that your learning be successful and helps me that my students use thinking skills. Particularly, makes me realize that I cannot teach everything at once, but that learning should be gradual, both in quantity and complexity.bloom

To the planning, I think we must consider what is it that I want my students to learn? What activities do I have to do to achieve their objective? What resources I will use for this? How do I measure the learning of my students? and time.

According to what I read, Bloom’s Taxonomy, is always used as a tool to establish learning objectives, and even today, is still valid, however, it have made updates to it, is now adapted the digital age, that is, you will incorporate the ICT (Information Technologies and Communications) to the learning process.

Despite being a subject that is not in the book of TKT, I think it’s very important to know it, because it is very useful, interesting, appropriate, practical and effective, moreover, is as a teaching method to help me a lot in my classes.

This is my activity to categorize the thinking skills involved at the 6 levels of the cognitive taxonomy.

In my coursebook, the unit 6 is about countable and uncountable food; after having reviewed food and drinks and countable and uncountable nouns, beginner level young learners will:

  1. Recalling: Describe the food groups and identify at least two foods from each group, noting whether they are accountants or uncountable.
  2. Understanding: Write a simple menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner using the food guide.
  3. Applying: What would you ask the customers of a supermarket if you were doing a survey of what food they eat? (10 questions).
  4. Analyzing: Prepare a report on what people in your class breakfast.
  5. Evaluating: Make a booklet about the 10 most important food habits for the whole school eat healthy.
  6. Creating: Compose a song or poem for selling apples.

Remember you cannot ask in evaluating what you have not caused…
