2) Pass homework quietly and respectfully to the right and back to classmate sitting next to class period inbox. 3) Once homework is passed, have notebook opened to empty page with writing instrument on page. Group Work Time 1) On teacher’s cue, quietly break into groups of four within your area. For example, first two rows on left, center, and right of classroom. 2) Open textbook to correct page for designated problems. 3) Discuss questions loud enough for your group to hear one another. Volume of discussion should not be loud enough for other groups to hear. 4) Raise hand for teacher’s assistance and permission for one spokesperson to consult with another group if group is stuck on a question. This must not take more than one to two minutes. Humans are creatures of habit. We have our own routines that we engage in on a daily basis. The same applies for teachers in their classrooms. They create routines for their class to follow and expect their class to engage in these routines. However, effective teachers need to model the routines for their classes so that the students can comprehend what the expectations are when engaging in the routines. My three routines are the ones that stuck out to me when I was in high school. They are modeled after effective strategies from three different teachers that were able to be communicated concisely to my classes. Each of these teachers created a concise structure that made class function smoothly. I envision the routines that I model for my classes will communicate the importance of sticking to a structured routine that will allow the students to become successful in the classroom.

6 Task #3 with Heart: A Guide for Nurturing Adolescent Learners, confirmed my belief that structuring class routine in a particular manner will “give students something to rely on and serves as a model of organization that I hope will help them organize the different segments of their lives” (Ridnouer, 2006, 110). It is important to get classes into a routine so that when different scenarios arise, the students do not need prompting to complete those scenarios. They already know what to do and complete those tasks efficiently. I want my routines to become second nature to my classes so that when there is a substitute teacher, that substitute does not have to worry about the class relying on him/her for direction. D. Routine Misbehaviors Routine misbehaviors are common occurrences in a classroom because students get so excited about solving a problem they shout out a problem or have a close friend in the class, so they become too social and talk while instruction is occurring. Students make minor mistakes that do not deserve the same punishment a more heinous mistake would receive, such as a trip to the principal’s office, suspension, or expulsion. When I become a teacher, routine misbehaviors will be addressed so that minimal embarrassment is brought to the offending student(s). If a

    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.
