Abstract


EXAMINING THE BEHAVIOR REGULATION PROCESSES OF CLASSROOM TEACHERS IN CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT

With the changing and developing society, innovations are being experienced in education day by day. Class management is also affected by these changes. One of the important problems encountered in the learning-teaching process is the behavior dimension in classroom management. The aim of this research is to determine the opinions of classroom teachers regarding behavioral regulation processes in classroom management. In the study, a situation study with a qualitative research pattern was used. The study group consisted of 23 teachers. In the research, a structured form consisting of 5 open-ended questions was used as a data collection tool. The analysis of the data was done using content analysis. According to the analysis of the data obtained, 6 different categories were determined. According to the results of the research; In the category of 'interest and attention to the lesson', teachers enter the course using the most curiosity, storytelling, association with daily life and material. In the category of 'behaviors to comply with class rules', teachers exhibit the most 'warning, class rule making, explaining and rewarding' behaviors to ensure compliance with class rules. In the category of 'Improving positive behavior in students by teachers', teachers use the most 'symbolic and social reinforcements' to improve positive behavior in students. According to teachers in the category of 'unwanted student behavior in the classroom', it is most commonly 'students fighting and saying bad things and insulting in the classroom'. In the category of 'measures taken for unwanted student behavior in the classroom', the measures taken by teachers are most commonly to 'warn, meet and explain' with the parent. The sixth category is 'creating an effective classroom climate', and teachers stated that it is necessary to 'give a voice, make eye contact with the student, listen to them when they communicate and perform group activities'. Teachers can make the lesson more fun, enjoyable and student-centric, reducing the incidence of unwanted behavior.
