Classroom conflicts

"classroom conflict"


Classroom conflict is a general problem. Every teacher should be ready to face it.

  • As a teacher, we should be supportive, encouraging, and respectful of student ideas in the classroom. We should provide them proper space to put their views, we should correct their wrong answers, we should point out their academic weaknesses but we should never discourage our students.
  • We should always listen to our students carefully and we should respond to them properly whenever they offer an idea.
  • We should not dismiss a weak or incorrect idea immediately, we should ask our pupil to clarify it using the class material. Often, they can talk their way into a more thoughtful response.
  • We can try some funny things in the classroom to engage our students but we should know that this act require extra care as it can easily be misunderstood

We are also less likely to fall into conflict with our pupils if we resolve any mixed feelings we have about our superiority as a teacher. Students expect us to set clear boundaries and to hold them to their academic responsibilities.


Arguments in Class

When arguments erupt in class, or when a pupil makes any wrong comment, our role as the teacher is to save the learning atmosphere of our classroom. This task is two-fold: Read more

Teaching Maths-Classroom discussions

Teaching Maths-Classroom discussions

Teaching Mathematics is an art but there are certain factors about it that we can learn and improve our academic delivery.

Creating productive classroom discussions is one of them

Lecture method may work very well for some subjects but not all the time in  Mathematics classes.
Engaging students by constantly asking them some questions is a nice method but only when the explanation and the questions are Mathematical. Reasoning and justifying are good habits of mind but they are only productive if they are based on Mathematical theories.
Creating a productive classroom discussion is probably the most difficult part of Mathematics teaching. I suggest five methods for moving beyond Lecture methods in teaching Mathematics.
I have always tried to practice these methods in my own teaching whether with students or with teachers and I have found them very useful

1. Predict the Pupils’ Responses of Mathematics
All the teachers should know about each and every student how he/she is going to react to the instructional tasks(s) that they are asked to work on. Read more

Pi day-14th March

In the whole history of Mathematics, the calculation of the ratio of a circle’s circumference and diameter is one of the biggest challenges.
This value is represented by the Greek letter π (pie). From ancient civilization of Babylonia to present age of supercomputers, Mathematicians have been trying to calculate this mysterious number.

They have searched for exact fractions value, formulas, and, more recently, patterns in the long string of numbers starting with 3.14159…….. which is generally shortened to 3.14.

Its an irrational number in Mathematics. Read more

How to Get 7 in Ib Maths hl

How to Get 7 in Ib Maths hl

Many of my students got “7” in their IB Maths HL paper people so I believe my suggestion would be useful regarding this-

I think that students should solve their problems in one go. I don’t believe in following some “10 minute before your sleep” tips. All your hard work will go in vain if you forget chapter 3 while doing chapter 4 and because many times the hard questions a require knowledge across many chapters. What you need is a period of intense and thorough revision, in which your free study time is totally devoted to Math HL.

In the process of revision, Students should study the sections one after another.Textbooks split chapters into different sections with practice questions given at the end of each section.If you do not have such a textbook, please buy a good and I think there should be NO “I don’t know how to buy” issue).

Students should follow these instructions-

Instruction 1. Read the whole body of the section carefully.Students should understand it in the best possible way

Instruction 2.Try the practice questions in the order of their difficulty should not waste time on questions which you know, are very easy for you.Make a list of the questions you can’t do.Once the number of the listed questions reached 25-30% of the whole practice set, you should stop solving the questions and go back and study the body text because there is surely some concept that you are still missing.Once you are done with your reading, you can try your listed questions again.If the problem persists, you need expert should go to your teacher or seek online help at ib elite tutor.

Advantages of Class 10th Cbse Board Exams

Advantages of Class 10th CBSE

Board Exams-

We all are well aware that according to the decision made by HRD ministry, all CBSE school will go through a centralised board exam for class 10th from the 2017-18 sessions. As the time of exams coming closer, there is a feeling of anxiety amongst the students and their parents. Whenever I meet parents of my students, they all ask a few similar questions. How will be the question paper on boards? will it be very difficult? How will be the evaluation made? will it be very strict? All these questions seem to be silly but this shows their anxiety towards boards. But as a professional teacher, I consider that this is a decision in the right direction.

Class 10th board exams are far more beneficial for students  in comparison to school exams, here we have a few benefits:

1) These exams give students a fair idea about the exams far away from the home atmosphere of their schools and teachers.

Students will find them better mentally prepare for other out school competitive exams

2) A student will find a level playing field across the country and can prepare him/her self for a pan India competition. This exam ensures discipline amongst the students and is a standardised yardstick for assessing students in schools in the whole country. There may be chances of discrimination in school exams because some school exam papers might be really easy while some might be very difficult.

3) There is a scope of improvement in marks/grades for a student who works hard throughout the year.

Because final marks-sheet  is based on single board exam conducted at the end of year while its based on comprehensive system in c.c.e system

4)A student has to write a test for the whole syllabus so he/she has to revise it many times , it helps him/her make a strong academic base.

5) Board exams provides students and parents with a fair idea about student’s strengths and weaknesses and help them decide about their future studies and streams

6) A lot of people talks about excessive pressure in board exams but I consider it a myth. I have seen a lot of students under immense pressure just because of their school exams. If a student plans his studies properly and does a proper revision, he/she will have never be in pressure.

8) CBSE has provided with sample papers and sample marking scheme for each subject students can see them and plan their preparation accordingly. It provides transparency and standardisation in the whole system

7)  The biggest advantage of board exam is that it doesn’t have any disadvantage in comparison to school exams

besides all these benefits, uniformity in the whole system makes it easy to deliver for teachers too so lets enjoy boards and get us best prepared for coming academic session

Students who pursue the IB diploma must take six subjects:one each from Groups 1–5 and either one from Group 6 or a permitted substitute from one of the other groups, Three or four subjects must be taken at Higher level (HL) and the rest at Standard level (SL)

Here are the subject groups offered by IB
First Group:Studies in language and literature. Taken at either SL or HL, this is generally the student’s local language, with over 80 languages available. As of courses starting in summer 2011, there are two options for Language A, Literature, which is very similar to the old course, and Language and Literature, a slightly more difficult for.

Second Group:  An additional language, taen at the following levels: Language B (SL or HL), or Language ab initio (SL only).

Third Level: Individuals and societies. Humanities and social sciences courses offered at both SL and HL.Business and Management, Geography, Economics, History, I.T(information technology) in a Global Society, Psychology, philosophy and Social and Cultural Anthropology and World Politics.The course named as World Religions and the inter-disciplinary course Environmental Systems and Societies are also offered at SL level only.

Fourth Group: Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Design Technology and Computer Science are offered at both HL and Sl levels.The course Sport, Exercise and Health Science and the interdisciplinary course Environmental Systems and Societies are offered at SL only

Fifth Group: Mathematics. In order of increasing difficulty, the courses offered are Mathematics Studies, Mathematics SL and HL, and Further Mathematics SL and HL. The computer science courses were moved to Group 4 as a full course from first examinations in 2014

Sixth Group: The arts. Courses offered at both SL and HL: Dance, foreign languages, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, and Film.Instead of taking a Group 6 course, students may choose to take an additional course from Groups 1–4 or either Further Mathematics HL (if already studying Mathematics HL) a course for Computer science from Group 4, or course based on school syllabus approved by IB.

Ib is also designing an online diploma course, I will discuss that in my next article.
