What is your advice about? Routines

  1. Entry routines help set the tone for the lesson. It is worth spending time practicing your entry routine with a new class.
  2. Exit routines (putting books and resources away) are vital. Efficient and ordered exit routines give you more time to teach.
  3. Check for 100% compliance with entry routine. Dealing with non-compliance early in the lesson is a powerful example of your high expectations.
  4. Time your exit routines for greater efficiency and fun. My Y7/8s love trying to beat their time and the (sometimes concocted) Y11 times.
  5. You can always go back to your routines and tighten them up. Demonstrating your unwaveringly high expectations will be of benefit in the long run.
