Using Henry Fayol’s Principles for Better Classroom Management

Mohd Shakir


Classroom is a place surrounded by four walls and a roof which is used by the teacher to impart knowledge to the students. It is a shelter for educational activities; an environment for acquiring knowledge in a formal manner. It provides a context for learning and includes not only the physical space and furnishings, but also the inherent atmosphere, learners’ emotions and the social dynamics attached to learning. Management of the classroom environment hence, becomes an important aspect in this backdrop. The objective of effective teaching is often achieved through proper classroom management, i.e., by incorporating predetermined and predefined goals and engaging students through group-activities to achieve them. Classroom management being an important element of teaching thus, necessitates the absence of disruptions and disturbances, providing room for better learnable outcomes. It is an understandable fact, however, that the classroom conflicts cannot be eliminated completely; but minimized. Author in this paper has implemented Fayol’s principles in an attempt to manage the classroom more efficiently by minimizing conflict situations and thereby creating more comfortable educational environments. It is argued that these principles can be of a great help to the students in coping with the classroom difficulties arising chiefly out of peer-competition and other extraneous pressures.

Keywords: classroom, management, disruptive behaviour and classroom management.
