Discipline in the ClassroomDiscipline in a classroom is pivotal. If there is lack of structure and focus, a class will never respect the lesson or the teacher. It is important that a teacher establishes focus, direction, maintains fairness, and control to instill good learning in a classroom. A teacher must always be prepared. It is very important that a precedent be set, and a teacher work hard towards maintaining manners and obedience in a classroom. Respect is of utmost importance. It is very important to have focus and direction in a classroom. Students need to be made aware when a lesson is beginning, and when it is time to settle down. It is important to instill a sense of discipline so when the teacher says its time to quiet down, students should not decide to continue conversations or challenge the teacher. If a teacher speaks above them or ignores students having conversations, the students will find it adequate to continue their noise.

Students have a keen sense of what is fair and what is not. A teacher must always act fairly if you expect to be respected in a classroom. All students need to be treated equally. Students should also be treated with respect. Even if a student is misbehaving it is important that a teacher not pin point out the student or make them feel like an outcast.

Along with fairness and respect, a teacher should also always make sure that he or she is consistent in his behavior. In order to maintain respect this is of utmost importance.
