Why are my students still acting this way?!!!

29 03 2012

It’s spring. The end of the school year is fast approaching. Curriculum must be taught. There are trips to be taken. Test to be administered. No time for misbehavior to interrupt and disrupt things.

You think they’d know your expectations by now. You can’t even count the number of times you’ve reminded them to put their names on their papers…to work quietly…to raise their hands…

Behavior management workshops are always highly attended. For good reason.

It remains challenging even for veteran teachers – especially as the year draws to a close.

So, I’ve compiled a list of strategies. For some, this will be a review. But it can be a ready reference – reminders of what you know work. A quick glance at the list may be all you need when you’ve had one of THOSE DAYS.

For those of you who are finishing up your first year of teaching, this list will become a valuable resource. Think of it as your tool box for behavior management.

Pick one strategy and ask a veteran teacher to explain and model it for you. Focus on one strategy for a week to get the hang of it.

The complete list of behavior management techniques can be found on my website at:
