Classroom teachers are expected to carry out various functions or roles within the classroom.These roles change depending on the expectation you have of students.
There are five main roles that teachers fulfill in classrooms. These roles are:
1 - Communication.
Learning and teaching in the classroom predominately take place through interpersonal communication between teachers and students. Effective student learning depends largely upon the strong and positive management of classroom communication in all its forms and situations
2 - Planning.
Whether it be the start of the school year, the commencement of a new term or the start of a new position within a school, effective teaching, learning and classroom management depend on effective planning.
3 - Motivation.
Motivation is a vital factor in the teacher's management of learning and behavior in the classroom. Motivation signifies the causes or 'why' of behavior; it is concerned with questions of the energizing of behavior and the direction given to behavior.
4 - Controlling.
Controlling is the process by which teachers ensure that the learning activities and behavior of children in the classroom are consistent with the objectives, expectations and plans of both teachers and school.
5 - Organizing.
The organising role involves teachers in making arrangements and developing an orderly structure, which will unify all elements in the classroom into a coherent and functioning whole.
The Roles of the Teacher App focuses on the foundations of these five important roles.
