What Can Teachers Do To Make Students Obey Rules? Latest Answers

Câu trả lời mẫu cho câu hỏi: What can teachers do to make students obey rules?

Well, there is one thing teachers can do to encourage their students to follow rules. And it’s something that at first glance seems obvious, but many teachers fail to do. What I mean is teachers can explain to their students WHY their rules exist. Dr. Robert Cialdini, an expert in the field of influence and persuasion, describes a well-known experiment that demonstrates that when we ask someone to do or not to do something, the response is more favorable when we give them a reason. So simply adding the word ‘because’ makes people more likely to do what someone wants them to do. Moreover, teachers can explain how their rules are in place to their students’ benefit, especially if teachers say that their priority is to protect their students’ right to learn and enjoy school. I think it can transform students’ attitude toward the boundaries a teacher establishes for their class. What teachers should definitely not do is use the ‘it’s either my way or the highway’ strategy. Such an authoritarian approach to establishing school rules may cause dislike, rebelliousness, and a desire to misbehave behind a teacher’s back. Another thing teachers can do is allow students to participate in developing the classroom rules or behavior guidelines. Giving students a say will allow them to feel valued. As students contribute to the classroom expectations, they are more likely to follow them. And, of course, teachers can create compelling lessons ’cause when students enjoy a class, they’re naturally inclined to follow rules.
