researcher carried out the literature review by reading books and browsing work
relating to the problems from various writers and researcher and their opinion.
Chapter three deals with various techniques adopted in getting factors for the
study. The use of questionnaires and interview method can be adopted to get the

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Classroom management refers to
all of the things that a teacher does to organize student’s space, time and
materials so that instruction in content and students learning can take place.
In all that you communicate, no matter how insignificant or how innocuous it
may seem, it can contribute to your status as a teacher and your ability to
manage the classroom.
Ginoh (1972) states that “good
classroom management like surgery requires precision no random cuts, no
insults, no blistering language, his/her management plan is never sadistic.
He/she lures by the law of compassion, even when challenged by children to defy
it tells us. Harmg Ginoh tells us the amounts of time students are actively
engaged in learning contribute strongly to their achievement. The amount of
time available for learning is determined by the instructional and management
skills of the teacher. This implies that teachers must plan and prepares well,
be organized, maximize student time on task, keep students actively engaged,
efficiently utilize time and the list question.
Look at yourself, be mindful of
your self confidence, voice, attitude, enthusiasm, personal appearance,
manners, values and most of all, composure and self control losing composure
and shouting does ont enhance classroom management. The teacher sets the time
and creates the learning environment in the classroom. Consequently, the
classroom climates takes on the characteristics of the teachers personality and
disposition on the first day of school, introduce written rules and procedures
and post them. Above all, be generous with appreciative p[raise, encouragement
and reward for achievement and positive behaviour. Have the student practice,
learn and be able to plan classroom procedures (grade appropriate). The
procedures need to become routine, students should be able to perform the
How one teacher manages the
classroom, is the primary determination of how well your students learn.
Conversely, when students are successfully and actively engaged in their work,
they tend to be well behaved. Therefore, keep students involved in their work,
have students understand what is expected of them, maximize time on task, and
prevent confusion by relaxed and pleasant classroom. According to Manus (1989)
sensibly point out four rules of classroom management and these rules can be
applied in a classroom. They are;
Rules One: Get them in. the
process of getting them in can be seen to involve three phases in greeting,
seating, and starting.
Rule Two: Get them out. Here, the
teacher needs to consider two phrases of concluding a lesson and dismissing a
Rule Three: Get on with it.
This refers to the main point of the lesson, the nature of its content and the
manner of its preservation.
Rule Four: Get on with them. Here
the teacher develops good personal relationship with their pupils by fostering
mutual trust and respects. To do this effectively, the teacher needs to be
aware of each child as an individual and to be sensitive to the mood of the
class as a whole. This means knowing when and keeping track of what is going
Adeyemo (1971) regards classroom management as the content of a large variety
of straight forward activities such as simple clerical duties, ordering,
maintaining and distributing materials and caring for students behaviours.
Looniz (1980) sees classroom management as aiming a regulating the social
behaviour of pupils liking directing, questions at an inattentive pupils using
positive reinforcement or applying punishment as a remedial contain
