What is your advice about? Classroom Management
1: Always focus on the primary behaviour, never any secondary ones a student may resort to afterwards. What is it you wanted them to do in the first place?
2: Command the Learning Stage –
3: Targeted questioning always keeps students on their toes.
4: The perfect scenario is students that are excited and engaged, yet calm in their actions.
5: If you put together a seating plan for behaviour reasons, make sure you cut off direct lines of sight between students you deliberately want to keep apart.
