Once they get to class, they start doing the warm up they know that they are in class and that they need to get to work. Other than just sitting down and waiting for class to start. She gets everything ready for class and then starts picking up their homework while they are doing their warmup. She redirects students, provides feedback and gives praise or encouragement when needed. This multi-tasking is important in maintaining a respectful learning environment. Notice that Ms. Huffaker has a bell-ringer or warm-up on the board at the beginning of class. Students are free to begin working on it when they come in and then Ms. Huffaker gives them a bit more time after she makes any announcements needed for the day. Why is this important? Reflect. 1. Ms. Huffaker makes reference to information students have previously learned and explains to students why they are revisiting those topics. It is important to refer back to prior learning from time to time so that students maintain a strong foundation of understanding and are able to build upon those skills/content later on. What do you hear her say? 2. Ms. Huffaker maximizes instructional time by completing "housekeeping" tasks during times when students are working independently and not receiving direct instruction. How does this enhance the instructional time available to her? Reflect. 3. As Ms. Huffaker goes around checking homework, take note of how she redirects students, provides feedback and gives praise or encouragement when needed. How does this contribute to a respectful learning environment? 4. https:// 1 /

She also placed it under the document camera so that a visual reminder of time remaining was also available to students. You do not have to use this method - there are many online timers you can use &/or embed in your presentations. Spend some time searching the Internet or trying different methods to determine what works best in your classroom. How does using a timer impact the pacing of a lesson? I feel that how Ms. Huffaker used the timer is a good way to keep class moving. I would use the same method as her. However, if I saw that it wasn’t working in my class, I would do research to find something that would work best for me.
