Curriculum Development and Classroom Management

Classroom Management and Curriculum Development

Discipline, punishment, behavior, and class arrangement are considered basic elements of classroom management in the present society. Despite the fact that these elements have pivotal role in describing classroom management, they are not absolute. Effective interactive skills of the teachers with students augment the concept of classroom management.

It is therefore imperative to keep in mind the needs of the children and other stakeholders during curriculum development. Three main elements that form the basis of any classroom management should be the source of the decisions while developing such systems. These elements are the children, their families and the adults or teachers (Pakeys, 2015)


The key element to develop the effective curriculum is the children. various aspects should be considered when starting the development procedure. Interests, development levels, personalities or temperaments and the individual needs of the children are of paramount importance for an effective curriculum design.
