Application of "catfish effect" in classroom management

Cao Gu


Applying the "catfish effect" into classroom management can solve some of the current problems. By placing "catfish" in the classroom, pressure is exerted on the students to create competition and cooperation. During this process, communication between teachers and students should be enhanced to ensure that the process runs smoothly. "Catfish effect" plays an important role in promoting individual competitiveness and creativity in the classroom, strengthening the sense of honor in the classroom as a whole, and developing critical thinking in students. This effect can be used as an effective management tool for teachers.
