Quick Tip: Stay in Control of Your Class

Staying in control doesn't mean that you have to be a dictator in the classroom, but it does mean that students will stop and listen to you when you get their attention.

You can make a game out of playing and then stopping once you give a signal, such as clapping your hands three times, ringing a bell, putting your hand on your head, or something similar. Remember to reward students when they stop and listen to you. Verbally praising them as a class or singling out students as examples helps greatly.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
Email me with your quick tip, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
