One key is consciousness - being aware of strategies and approaches that work. Another key is consistency - implementing the strategies every day. Procedures ! Am I honoring the “calling on raised hands” procedure, or am I acknowledging student answers even when students call out? ! Am I ensuring that all students are fully on task before I address individual student questions and needs, or am I addressing individual student concerns while the rest of the class watches (the “popcorn effect”)? ! Am I teaching and re-teaching procedures, and checking for understanding? ! Am I teaching at least two procedures per class or lesson, and writing them into my lesson plan? ! Am I making use of non-verbals – visuals, rubrics, sound signals, music for transitions, and hand signals? Rules and Consequences ! Are students clear about the rules and consequences in my class? ! Am I using consequences consistently? ! Do I have a structured hierarchy of consequences that I feel comfortable using? Or is there too big a gap between consequences that I use, such that one is too mild, and the next is too harsh, so that I hesitate to use it (the “picket-fence” syndrome)? ! Am I holding my ground efficiently and clearly with students, delaying explanations until the dust settles and I can talk with them individually? Or am I over-explaining my decisions to my students, so that we end up engaging in public debates? ! Am I treating student complaints and arguments as disruptions deserving of consequences, or am I allowing students to “argue with the ref”? ! Am I consistently contacting parents? ! Am I welcoming the “charge” of being in charge, or am I in a state of self-apology? ! Am I being firm and soft in a way that invites student cooperation (Structured and Safe), OR mean and confrontational (Unsafe), OR a loose pushover (unstructured)?
