1. Student Behaviour

1.1. Absence of good behaviour is a performance deficit rather than a skill deficit

1.1.1. Don't get mad, get curious! Try to find the root of the behaviour

1.2. Classroom Management

1.2.1. Dynamic classroom Behaviours do not become problems if they are well managed Important to reinforce positive behaviours Bill Tucker's 3 C's: Consistency, Consistency, Consistency (consistency in consequences is the key to stoping new behaviours) Students should be involved in expectations and consequences in the classroom, having a say makes them feel like they need to follow them more. Explicit expectations, norms and consequences should be posted in classroom and visible for students at all times

2.2.1. Helpful to use backward design Step One: Identify Desired Outcomes: Articulate what learners should be able to understand and do after provided instruction. Step Two: Determine how you'll know if students are learning. Determine what types of assessments and measures would clarify when and whether students can perform the desired outcome. Step Three: Plan Learning Experiences and Instruction: Develop exercises, materials and instruction around the desired outcomes and evidence.

Function refers to the use of language to think, problem-solve, and communicate ideas to others. 2. Structure refers to all the rules that govern language use, such as syntax (grammar), semantics (meaning), and pragmatics (the appropriateness of language in context). 3. Infinite generativity refers to the ability to creatively and functionally generate an infinite series of meaningful phrases, sentences, and questions based on a finite set of words and language rules.

5.3. Developmental Appropriateness

5.3.1. Guiding principals for teaching considerations 1. Teachers must teach each topic in its respective learning progression. 2. Teachers must allow time, and preferably practice, in order for academic concepts to be fully understood. 3. Teachers must strive to improve how students know, not just how much they know. 4. Teachers must consider that within their classrooms it is normal and expected that some children will learn faster or slower than others 5. And, perhaps most important, teachers must recognize their ability to either positively or negatively affect how much of each child’s academic and social potential is realized.

6.1. Fixed vs Growth Mindset

6.1.1. According to Dweck, “In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits.
