1. Reward Good Behavior: Give students extra motivation to listen in class and follow rules

2. Treat your students with kindness and respect: The more kind and accepting you are, the more likely you are to receive respect back from your students

3. Have class rules that keep students responsible: Have small rules about coming in late, not being respectful, etc. that have higher consequences the more they are ignored to motivate students (eg. phone away, stay in after class, etc.)

4. Remind about rules: Remind students about classroom expectations and what they are allowed and now allowed to do

5. Set goals at the beginning of the year: The sooner students are made aware of the classroom rules, the quicker they will pick up on them

6. Individual plans: If there are certain students who struggle with different things (eg. learning disorders, disabilities, etc.) make certain plans for them

7. Keep Composure: When dealing with students, keep a calm demeanor, losing you cool won't help deal with students, and will give them the wrong idea about acceptable behavior

8. Model Expectations: When teaching, show and tell students how they are expected to behave in class, and what is not acceptable as well

9. Classroom Setup: Have spaces in your classroom that are clam and relaxing, sometimes students just need a quick break or a quite place to collect their thoughts and composure

10. Help students: If a student makes a wrong call of judgement, disruption, etc. don't make the changes for them, allow them to accept their actions and correct them by themselves
