I was writting the following sentence yet I was stopped by the way I have to use to present my examples:

I had to maintain a classroom management and discipline *for example by */ by, for example / for example through / through, for example:

• Monitoring Student Attendance and Progression.

• Delivering scheduled lectures to the assigned classes.

Which way is right or better to introduce my example ? say my example is:

Thank you

Of your options, I think best is "...by, for example:".

But I don't like the sentence "maintain a classroom management and discipline", because "maintaining a management" is very vague and unclear.

Also I don't think you should really say "for example" at all here. If you are going to only say those 2 points, just say: "...by monitoring student attendance and progression, and delivering scheduled lectures to the assigned classes.

But if you are going to list more points, then assuming this is for a C.V. or something, you would probably want to list all of your key responsibilities, not just an "example" of them.

My choice would probably be:

I was responsible for classroom management and discipline. My key tasks were to monitor student attendance and progression, and to deliver scheduled lectures to the assigned classes

Or

I was responsible for classroom management and discipline. My key tasks were:

  • to monitor student attendance and progression
  • to deliver scheduled lectures to the assigned classes
  • etc..
  • etc..

There are many good ways to introduce an example.

I had to maintain ... discipline by, for example, monitoring...

I had to maintain ... discipline. For example, I monitored...

I used various methods to maintain discipline, such as monitoring attendance and delivering scheduled lectures.

It does not work to immediately say "for example", as in your first sentence, "...discipline for example".
