Poor learners’ discipline has always been a key issue to address in order to enable effective teaching and learning to take place in a classrooms. This is my first year as economics teacher at Lephola High; however my first experience have turned out to be a disaster for me since I couldn’t manage the classes well because of learners’ poor discipline in a class that led into ineffective teaching and learning. Learners misbehaved in different ways that drained my energy and teaching time. I decided to take a more proactive approach i.e. making changes to improve something before problems happen, rather than reacting to problems and then changing things.
