1. My Action Plan

1.1. What’s is the problem?

1.1.1. Three concepts of "My Action Plan" Problem Solving Teacher and student find ways to solve behavior problems. Self-discipline Students begin to control themselves Responsibility Student takes responsibility for their actions

3. "The Problem is Not Discipline" - Two Types of Classrooms - Classroom Management - consists of the practices and procedures that a teacher uses to maintain an optimum environment in which instruction and learning can occur

3.1. Effective Classroom - Teach students how to responsibly follow procedures.

3.1.1. Procedures: 1. Planned procedures for classroom management. 2. Instructional procedures to maximize student engagement. 3. Systematically teach these procedures. Three Steps to Teaching Procedures Teach - State, explain, model, and demonstrate the procedure. Rehearse - Rehearse and practice the procedure under teacher supervision. Reinforce - Reteach, rehearse, practice, and reinforce the classroom procedure until it becomes a student habit or routine. Students Seeking Help - A classroom must have procedures set in place for a student to ask for help that does not become a distraction. Hand Signal - Signalling with a different finger or fingers indicates the student's needs. Toilet Tissue Tube - A red and green ends method to indicate to the teacher when a student needs help. Styrofoam Cup - Place the cup on the desk when teacher assistance is needed. What if Procedures don't work? Do not do the procedure Forget the procedure All else fails

Ease into them Key to good transition is clarity and simplicity of instruction Keep it short, simple, and easy to do. Do not talk during it distracts the student Ask for validation that the procedure is understood

6.2.7. To Solve the Pencil Problem Don’t fight it. Just give them a pencil. Giving students a pencil wastes less time that could be spent on learning. Have sharpened pencils on hand so students are not disrupting class to sharpen pencils.

6.2.8. For Groups The better the students work together, the more learning that takes place. Group learning is a structured situation Students achieve the goal of an activity more quickly when in a group of people who care for and are committed to one another. Effective grouping is dependent on The class climate it is important that all the determinants of successful student cooperation be in place before the class is divided into groups. The explanation how quickly students move into groups depends on how explicitly the teacher explains why groups will be formed and how Number of people in a group Length of time in a group Group structure Name Size Purpose, Materials, and Steps Procedures Individual accountability Evaluation methods

6.2.9. Put a Plan in Place All effective teachers have procedures to assist in managing a classroom and maximizing learning time. Teacher success can be traced to the ability of the teacher to manage the classroom. When students know how the class is run, they will be more willing to do whatever you want them to do.
