Classroom size
Many areas of the country are facing classrooms that are literally busting out at the seams. A report at NEA two years ago discussed how schools in Georgia, in the midst of major funding cuts for schools, had no choice but to lift all class size limits to accommodate students with the faculty the school system could still afford to keep. How can you manage a class that is 30+ students?

You can spilt them into small groups where each student has a role to contribute to the group, If you have six groups of five it seems much more manageable.

My suggestion is to get them in groups that are more manageable. Have every group complete a different task. This way it limits out of group conversations. Yes it will be more work and planning on you but it will lead to a more successful day. You can also rotate the students if you notice a group is not working well together.

I do not believe that is possible. The only thing the teacher can do is do their best!

Teacher would have to go above and beyond to be fully prepared each day ensuring no time where the students have the opportunity to get rowdy. The teacher should break the classroom up into small groups and make their daily schedule fit rotations and group work most of the time.

Split the class into groups and teach them how to rotate through different centers that relate to what was taught during whole class instruction. During these rotations, meet with one small group at a time to review topics and do guided practice.

Try to use small groups as much as possible or hands on activities. The more they are able to move and communicate with other students, the less you will have to interrupt and correct the behavior. Also, make sure in the first few weeks and occasionally go over the expected rules and procedures for the class. The more the go over it and understand it, the less attention you'll need to give during instruction time.
