All of these factors are a result of effective classroom management, and every great teacher will tell you that you must first learn how to maintain classroom discipline before honing. Discipline is simply a way to guide and manage a child’s behavior. Discipline is based on the quality of a child’s relationship with the care provider (a teacher in the classroom; mom and dad at home). When a child receives consistent response from a caring adult, trust, deep attachment and a sense of being wanted develops.

  • It may be outdated yes but the basics in classroom management are still there! I was not born in 1947 but 1989 and I can still relate to those students and those basic elements of classroom management, which may be ‘outdated’ are still effective today!

  • I teach English for communication in Thailand.Grade 1 to grade 6.I cannot maintain discipline in my classrooms because I am a foreigner to these students.They call me by my name and see me as a friend and not a teacher.I just go with the flow now.It is great though.

  • Wow! There is so much difference between the first and second versions of this video. The teacher in the first version was very negative and threatening. I see why the students were acting out. Then when they showed the second version there was a complete difference in the students. This video shows that the same positive strategies in teaching long ago are the same as along time ago.

  • The only way to punish kids in a classroom is to take their phones and tell them, no more hanky panky with Jake and Logan Paul for you.

  • reminds me of the junior high school students i had to sit with ugg well i would be working while they would be running around or talking and not to mention throwing things around and half of it always hitting me especially at lunch.. when a substitute teacher would  be there it would be utter chaos. However they won’t get away with it in high school though i think the teachers at my old school though should watch something like this. 

  • First off some adults that are teachers can be very disrespectful as well, but it always seems that when teachers are disrespectful nothing seems to happen. But when a student or someone that is let’s say “below” the teacher is disrespectful they will get in a tremendous amount of trouble. We need less narcissism in our world! That’s all I have to say about that.

  • Ummmmm………..As one of the intelligent student in my school this is right, because students learn their behaviors on school,for me i dont have much friends and i dont talk much but im good at resitations this is right ✔️✔️✔️

  • Haha love it. I once had a teacher who when the class misbehaved said “I’m getting paid to stand here listening to you chat.” Was a great teacher.

  • Wow, an old training video that actually makes sense and isn’t too corny or stupid to be effective. It even outlines good methods for things, and doesn’t once tell teachers to abuse students! I’m impressed.

  • This video shows how a teacher can do,
    but what i want to know is what can i do as a student who can’t focus in class because of my classmates.

  • Kids are usually disrespectful because Dad isn’t around to teach them how to behave. The rising rate of single motherhood has some very negative results.

  • I really enjoyed this basic video. At the end of the day, a teacher has to have these basic skills to have good lessons and a reminder every now and again, isn’t a bad thing.

  • You can’t blame teachers for yelling. Kids today have no respect for anyone and part of it has to do with the school board failing to give them consequences.

  • It’s an old school video, but the lesson still proves true. Positivity and encouragement, along with being nice to students will go a lot further than anger and threats. The 2 scenarios show a big difference. Teachers have a responsibility to their students, if an entire class fails, it’s saying something about the teacher.

  • Where everyone talking about education system not changed…..
    And you came with the worst thumbnail and worst topic in this modern world.
    I disliks this video.

  • This is in a time where there was corporal punishment. while I can understand the need for inspiration and educational facility, somehow there’s been the concept of Respect and how it’s perceived. The teacher and parent has the responsibilty of nurturing and developing an environment that is in the best interests of the child to grow and mature. Is this not a modicum of respect in return? Responsibility is up to the child to gain

  • As an experienced teacher myself, I’m struck by the timelessness of this video. This video remains relevant today. Teach with anger every day like the first Mr Grimesexpect a long and stressful school year that will entice you to consider looking for a different profession. Teach with wit like the second Mr Grimes, and you will earn the respect of your students, and find fulfillment in teaching like no other profession. Trust meI’ve taught with both styles, with near identical results.

  • 1 defiant student should not ruin the learning environment for 20 other students. Whenever that 1 student throws a tantrum, leave them to calm down and focus on everyone else who cares about learning. That 1 child won’t learn for the remainder of that session, but the 20 others will, and that’s what’s important. That 1 child needs discipline at home. Teacher’s can’t change that.

  • The teacher had no classroom management skills. He seemed as though he did not like teaching and he really did not have time for the students. This situation still happens sometimes in the classroom because we have some teachers who are only there for a pay check and not the students. And we wonder why there are behaviors.

  • I am new to the YouTube community. Could you all subscribe to my channel and support me along the way? I post Call of Duty! Have a great day!:)

  • That wouldn’t work on the chaotic schools the U.S. has today. Too many students are just scummy thugs who are determined to cause trouble and will not chill out without the real threat of major consequences, and often even that does not work. Put that teacher in a ghetto high school and see how he does. Rich ass private schools are just as bad when their administrations are scared to punish because parents are determined to spoil their kids. We have a serious problem.

  • Why I outta…young hipcats, think you’re being funny eh, by god you will learn math or so help me. haha. I personally could not be teacher, most youth behave like idiots, either lazy, un-motivated, air-headed, trying to show off, on and on, yes like myself at that age. I say put a real jail cell in the middle of the lunch room and line em up!

  • One of the big causes of discipline problems in any class starts with learners not having their own stationary, and then want to borrow from other learners!

  • There is so much you can take from students that come to class with attitude. I tried this approach to a few of the students but they are so resilient and unwilling to cooperate. Now I understand why they talk back.

  • However, classroom discipline in senior phase is a huge problem. I spoke to the kid who disrupts the classroom the most. I asked him why they behave the way they do. His response: “Ma’am, we undermine you. You are too young to tell us what to do. We can’t listen to someone like you. Sorry.”

  • The behavior problems in most classrooms are still the same, and the opportunity, and techniques, for teachers to control it are most definitely still the same. And if you think peer pressure, spoiled kids, or kids feeling they are not being respected, did not exist in the past, you really need to wake up.

  • Know your kids and show them respect. Respect for me and kids in my class are very important. Be consistent in how you treat EVERY learner in your class. They are clever and notice very quickly if you treat someone different. Kids in my class love the fact that I treat them ALL the same, even in small things.

  • she should try getting kicked and punched by her students and see how reaching the heart works out. kids need consistancy with punishment at home and school. Mom and dad let them kick n punch, i’ll get beat up and vice versa

  • Most of the student that take drugs, are pregnant, yield to peer pressure, and or do illegal activity on school grounds are college students, none of which are legally forced to be there.

    You force anyone to do anything they don’t want to do you should expect some backlash.

    On the bright side, students of all ages have advanced far higher than their counterparts of the 1940s

    IMO, those who take on the honorable role to teach must do so with excellence or quit [no one is forced to teach]

  • I have the same problem. I don not plan every single detail of my lesson and I have noticed that this sometimes gives them to much freedom. So in order to maintain the level of discipline in class I use a lot of peer assessment and pair work. My learners also know that they have to provide feedback and feedback is not voluntary I choose pairs and groups randomly. I’ve found that this gives them a sense of responsibility over their work which then in turn ensures that chaos doesn’t ensue in class when my lessons aren’t meticulously planned to a T. All of this then is done in relation to the type of learner that you teach, which goes back to the value of this video know your learner.

  • This is a good movie, and makes some good points. A positive attitude, and a can do approach is very important. However, this is pretty mild behavior compared to what happens today in some classrooms. In some cases, respect for the teacher, as is respect for all adults, completely gone. In some situations the kids know that their parents will take their side no matter what. However, there are still many well brought up, hard working, students who have been taught manners at home.

  • Dit is so cool dat jy ‘n sponsor #SuperTeachersUniting “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world”

  • Mr. Grimes should have spanked everyone to prove a point! Sending kids to the office is a reasonable consequence, but it’s not the wrong way to do it!

  • Check out our videos if you are interested in Retro Themed Spoof News. We cover the 1950’s through the 1990’s of American History.

  • The specific issues may seem different, but the underlying causes are the same. Kids (and even adults) act out because they are searching for attention, a sense of power over their lives, to get revenge for perceived hurts, or to cover up a fear of failure. If teachers and parents address kids with respect, allow them opportunities to make appropriate choices, and maintain consistency with reasonable expectations, kids wouldn’t feel the need to try drugs or be vulnerable to peer pressure.

  • My whole class functions in groups. Everything is a competition. They like to win prizes and special privileges. It helps when most learners buy into this, then I am only left with dealing with the “ring leaders”. They need to be divided, not grouped together. I also find it very helpful to make sure they are calm before they enter my classroom. I spend a little more time lining them up and getting them into their seats, then I actually have more teaching time, because they are more focused.

  • 3. The two versions of classroom management are of course, a little outdated, but they are still very relevant to today’s classroom. We have all had a teacher that tried to scare students into good behavior, which never seems to work as desired. One of the best teachers I ever had in high school was a male teacher that was not only good at teaching, but also remained in control in every situation by being calm.

  • I was always told to get respect one must give give respect. Back in high school most of my teachers were older and believed scolding, and scaring would make us act appropriately. This teacher ranted for minutes with negative remarks which discouraged some of the students. We can all relate better when we have a teacher that can handle discipline problems calmly without trying to throw daggers. Even though this clip was a little old it still proved relevant points.

  • Thank you for the lovely tips. I will def adapt these esp being a new teacher. At the moment I am using a reward system to maintain discipline.

  • I need some serious advice that my 10 years old son has been disrespectful to his teachers teasing them, threw and hit them. Calling his teacher names. This concerned me because his dad and I share custody. He only do when he is with his Father.

  • @p3rs0nan0ngrata A shocking portion of parents don’t punish, and that messes kids up. When kids are bad in class, there comes a point where nothing will work except punishment. Some people are Hell bent on being bad, and they have to be punished. If a criminal knows there are no consequences, he commits crime. That is a fact of life.

  • I really enjoyed watching this video because it allowed me to see how I should deal with these situations as an upcoming teacher. Even though the video was outdated and does not reflect the students in today’s society, it was still a helpful resource for dealing with discipline.

  • these are not “film strips,” they are “films,” aka movies. You deluded us into clicking onto your collection with the misuse of the term “film strip.(s)” Bad you, whoever you are. A million thumbs down.

  • I was told that I had to earn people’s respect and that people had to earn mine. I was taught that I had to earn my teacher’s respect but I was never taught that the teacher had to earn mine. I was basicaly expected to show mindless obidence twoards them and many of my teachers had abused their authority and abused me. I had many teachers just like the one in this video.

  • I have the privilege of going to work with my mother when our schedules allow it, and she’s a natural of the second type in this video, to the extent she makes it look easy, which I found out wasn’t the case on my first day. She teaches the lowest end of immigrants. She has dealt with ex-cons, ex-soldiers, in fact in one lesson a Kuwaiti exile from a well-off family drew a knife on an Iranian woman. My mum went right upto him, took the knife out his hand and slapped his face, and carried right on with the lesson.

  • You have no idea how disrespectful students can be! Try your techniques with some of the students I know! They have no problem knocking the teacher down and have a long laugh at it! And yes they always get away with it because teachers are always the weak link!

  • Please stop giving goody goody videos. As a teacher and being one of the best in the profession….Making lessons easy and interactive..I have gone through students with very disrespectful behaviour. Good teachers and human beings like me feel helpless infront of such situation. Our egos get hurt

  • This is laughable. What happens when you have 3 or 4 kids doing this in a classroom of 28, every single day? Yes they have issues that most people can’t even imagine, but they are destroying the learning experience for 24 other kids.

    Not only that, when you are trying to connect with one disrespectful kid, the other 3 disrespectful kids are bullying the quirky kid who tries to do his best, but absolutely hates every second she’s in the classroom with these bullies.

    They then put the horribly behaved kids in smaller classes of 10-12 kids, which means the mid level classes will have 34 kids, which ruins that class.

    The educational system in the US cannot be fixed. Horrible parents have too much control in the system through threats of litigation. Administration has no backing from the Board and teachers have no backing from the administration. Teachers are admonished for sending disruptive kids out of their class and punished further if those students are suspended.

    It’s over. If you can, homeschool your kids. If you can’t, try to get your kid in a magnet-type program that removes them from the general population.

  • @SuperCheckerd It’s good to start with inspiration, motivation, and positive comments, but those are not effective enough for all kids.

  • The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.-Socrates…. Yea the youth these days are soooo unique

  • Hi francois. I am a first year student and still very passionate even though I got a shock to the workload that has to be done. I would like to know if there is a possibility that i could ask a few questions via email if it is possible?

  • i have a problem with classroom discipline…and i found this video very helpfull…i have however improved during my last year of teaching bit can still do a lot better..with improving i found that not just threatening to with a punishment you should hold true to that threat…dont just say their will be consequences act on it…

  • I hate other students since they annoy me to the point that I actually want to implement strict discipline. Lets say the teacher is having an important lesson then someone shouts a random idioctic term just to get attention that is annoying, lets also say that the students talk back to teachers knowing that the teachers won’t hurt them Physically, quite annoying tbh.

  • I try to remain involved with the children throughout the lesson. I always ask everyone questions not tun just those who volunteer answers.
    Do on you have to pay R 100 per month membership fees for Eduvation?

  • Even though this video is old, I wouldn’t use the word dated for it. A lot of the behaviors that went on in this classroom, are the same behaviors that were happening when I was in school, and still happen today. So in turn, if the behaviors haven’t changed much then some of the same strategies that worked then can still work today.

  • I need to show this video to my school teachers. They do a terrible job at controlling the classroom, and I hardly understand anything.

  • Product of its time. Feet and yards in a maths class is unheard of now. These young people need the metric system if they are going to get on in trades today as imperial measurements have disappeared due to them ding less accurate. The bridge length would be taught in metres.

  • Seeing the 2 examples of teachers reactions to a situation was intriguing. This video shows that reactions and words from teachers can directly effect how the students learn. When the students respected the teacher the discipline problems were not as problematic. The demeaning language the teacher used from the first example about the students failing the test was uncalled for and set the tone for the rest of the class. We saw this was true as the changes that took place in the second example.

  • Great skills. About teachers, since not every TESOL School has the same curriculum it is suggested that one should get accredited through http://www.tesolcanada.org or http://www.tesollosangeles.org or http://www.tesolnewyork.org 

    Questions is how important is the accreditation and TESOL membership for TESOL graduates working in USA, Canada or overseas (China-Japan & Korea)?

  • Yeah, making the course seem more meaningful and being encouraging when it is appropriate do make a positive difference, but they are not always enough. Some kids are really bad kids. That is a fact. The only thing that deters bad behavior for them is the threat of real punishment.

  • Maintaining discipline in my classrooms very from class to class. I can easily reprimand my GR4b class. They listen and start behaving instantly. Their former Gr3 teacher spoke to them at the beginning of the year. They were disciplined in foundation phase. However, Gr4A is a huge challenge. They were somehow “spoilt” in Gr3. I have called parents to intervene. That worked on 70% of the learners. The other 20% didn’t show up and the other 10% ������. Parental involvement is important especially if there problems at home that teachers don’t know about. I got to know and undrstand some of my learners by communicating with parents/gurdians.

  • On the very first day I explain the rules of the class as well as the consequences that will follow for each.  I ensure that I stay consistent with this.

  • I maintain classroom through a simple classroom routine: I’m on time, Learners line up outside my classroom, once they are quiet they may lead in. As they lead in I check their uniform. Once inside they stand behind their chairs until they are quiet. Then we greet and I start the lesson. At the end of the lesson they stand, straighten and clean the classroom and when they are quiet we greet and they lead out. Every single time. Sometimes with double periods I let them stand and leave and come back in again.

  • It’s a challenge, I am making the changes but get very unhappy when 2 or 5 rude learners steal their class mates learning time by having their own private fights outloud.����

  • Bring back the paddle. Ticket the kids for disrupting the classroom!

    My friend heard the F word over 500 times, the N word 300 times, the B word 300 times in a 3 hour period!

    You need to work in a South Texas school. Lots of illegals who are in the Mexican Mafia!

  • You have some good points, however I don’t believe for a second that you have “never seen peer pressure in (your) entire life.” You must have been living under a rock, or perhaps you don’t know the definition of peer pressure. Peer pressure exists in many forms & it happens to EVERYONE on a fairly frequent basis.

  • I’m sorry but this is someone trying to find the meaning in somthing that isn’t there, I mess with my teacher for three reasons, too see how much I can get away with, or cause we’re all bored and just want to show were not happy

  • This video expressed great ways for a teacher to approach their classroom in dealing with behavior in classroom management. I’m glad it was broken down into two segments that allowed the viewer to see the cause and effects of proper classroom management versus inappropriate classroom management. These enactments are beneficial in helping a new teacher to figure out what to say in particular situations with students acting inappropriately.

  • Hey Guys, I’ve completed 7 years at University (Physiotherapy and Sport and exercise science) and have just launched my brand new company called Fit Labs, its based on genetic science! Check it out please https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grAhfXN9VVo

  • I went to prep school. We had a code of honour. If the teacher ever said “Who did that?” or “Who said that?”, the person immediately confessed. To hide was considered cowardly. That was a wonderful code of honour and a wonderful school. Teachers and students really respected each other.

  • Nice video!!
    You may wish to watch one such on Classroom rules and give your feedback:)

  • I have been teaching for 11 years and you have just motivated me to be the best thank you!
    To maintain discipline, I choose to make eye contact and make a point to know each learner by name. If you want to discipline a whole class you need to have their attention. For example, if the class becomes rowdy or I see they’re not listening, I call out “hands on top! “. My learners know they have to stop with anything they are doing and put their hands on top of their heads and reply “everybody stop”. After everybody have stopped and looked at me, I can give an instruction or discipline as I wish.

  • Chile please….kids are disrespectful because they want to be not everything is about abuse and distrust….may be part of some kids problems but most cases its not that.

  • Some kids have mental concerns but all need early character training in and out of classes. “The root cause of wrongdoing is ignorance, and we must therefore hold fast to the tools of perception and knowledge. Good character must be taught.” Baha’i Faith

  • An oldie but a goodie. Many things have changed in the classroom but this video is not dated when it comes to the basics of classroom management. It was great to see what a difference the teacher’s talking style made.

  • Set the tone on the 1st day of school. Choke out one of the little fkrs and you’ll be smooth sailing the rest of the school year ��

  • @p3rs0nan0ngrata So, at what point does punishment make sense? When is the behavior of the kid the fault of the kid? Do you agree that there is at least one kid out there who will misbehave relentlessly if he knows there are no consequences?

  • @SuperTruth77 Things have gotten that messed up. I bet your administration did nothing to punish kids for acting like that. There is no reasonable argument that what those undisciplined thugs did was your fault, but unfortunately, there are people out there who are so out of touch with reality that they will say it was your fault, which is ridiculous. It’s the fault of those kids, the parents who didn’t discipline them, and the administration that refused to punish them.

  • however is outdated because it doesn’t reflect students we deal with now. Peer pressure, drugs, teen pregnancy, spoiled, lack of respect from the public, etc. are the relevant issues today.

  • I found this video relatable as well as insightful. It is surprising to me that the first method of intimidating children is obviously not a productive method however it is still common in the classroom. I also enjoyed the way the teacher in the second half found ways to relate the material to both boys as well as girls in the classroom.

  • “There’s no black kids”…..you a sound like a stereotypical black person talking like that…..
    Did you mean “There aren’t any black kids”?

  • Love that you are working with EduVation. Fantastic! On another note discipline is very tough. I was lucky to have very good learners (Grade 5’s) and rarely had to do anything disciplinary. But the way I maintained discipline that worked best for my learners was to have a “monitor” every day whose job it would be to clean the board, hand out papers, etc (for some reason kids love doing that), but in order to be the monitor, you had to win the “guide award” for the day for good behavior. I would rotate the students to ensure everyone had a turn, but they had to earn it. Kids LOVE having goals to achieve and this worked well for my kids.

    Love the approaches and suggestions can see them being very helpful, especially the planning and personality tips. Fantastic video, Francois!

  • are these techniques really that old??? Real-world problems… making the work meaningful to the student… I thought that this was a product of new research!! Intriguing.
