They need to emphasize the positive about student behavior and when a student does act up, the teacher should not make them feel like a “bad kid” but rather that they made a bad choice and give them the opportunity to correct themselves. Positive behavior support builds self-esteem in students and has been proven to be an effective strategy (Emphasizing the Positive). Some rules I will have in my classroom are: no personal electronics allowed unless otherwise noted for instruction, always raise a hand to speak when the teacher or other students are speaking, only one student allowed to use the restroom at a time, and no talking to other students while I am lecturing. Some expectations I will have include: show up to class on time with completed homework, always show respect for peers and teachers, bring appropriate supplies to class (i.e. pencil, paper, calculator, etc.), and participate in class discussions and activities. 3. Classroom Routines Routines are important because they not only keep the classroom running smoothly but also provide students with a sense of security because they will know what to expect. Establishing and practicing routines in the beginning of the year also helps save time so the teacher can focus on teaching (Savage & Savage, 2010). I would spend

the first day teaching the classroom routines like an academic lesson and explaining why routines are important not only in the classroom but in the real world as well. I would then follow with a couple days of modeling and practicing these routines. Since I would like to work with high school students, I would use music as attention grabbers to signal the time to start or stop a specific routine (Evidence Based). The framework I would use to teach these routines is SCIIP. SCIIP stands for simplify, clarify, ignore, identify, and praise/promote. Instructions for the routines, and the routines themselves, will be simple and clearly explained and then any clarification the students needed would be given. While the classroom gets use to the routines, ignoring minor misbehavior or distractions will be used unless the problems start to get out of hand. This is where identifying will come in play. I will constantly scan the room and identify proper participation or poor participation and praise or discipline as necessary. Finally, when students are doing the routines correctly and automatically, I will provide praise and always promote the behaviors I consistently want to see from my students while accomplishing these routines (Effective Teaching).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
