Theme: How do teachers manage their classrooms?
There are a bunch of things to question in regards to discipline and classroom management. But the first and biggest question that comes to mind in respect to the classroom I am student teaching in is this: How do you get students to become independent thinkers? The reason why I ask this is because so many times I see that students, instead of trying to work on something that takes a little thinking or a little effort because they may not know the answer right away, they stop trying and they turn to other classmates and start chatting about un-related things. I think this is where some of the discipline issues come up and/or where the class starts to feel less managed than it did before.
