student blurts out an answer, I will kindly remind them to raise their hand while congratulating them on the correct answer. For students that are socializing during a lesson or independent study, I will take a few seconds to ask them to stop and wait until the class is over. It will be important to address misbehaviors immediately and swiftly so as not to disrupt the flow of the lesson. One example that I vividly remember is when I was observing a former middle school teacher’s class. I was waiting for him to enter the class, and witnessed a student attaching all of

7 Task #3 the teacher’s paperclips together to make a paperclip chain. When he saw the teacher entering the room, he quit the chain making and headed to his seat. After the teacher sat at his desk, he addressed the student about the paperclip chain. The student tried playing it off that he was not the culprit. But, the teacher saw him leaving his desk when he entered and saw no other students at his desk when he entered. The teacher asked the kid to quickly disassemble the chain and reminded him that he was too old to be engaging in that type of shenanigans. The student obliged, apologized, and kept to himself for the rest of class and did not engage in any misbehaviors. E. Emotionally Safe Classroom One of the most important responsibilities for a teacher is creating an emotionally safe classroom for students to succeed and not have to face criticism and ridicule from classmates. Students already have to deal with a lot of circumstances, such as family, personal, and social life, the pressure of school, and the pressure of extracurricular activities. When students enter my classroom, I want them to know that they can be themselves and succeed by doing their best. There will be times will they will have to answer questions aloud. Their answers may not always be correct, and I will not allow their classmates to make fun of them or ridicule the answers. There could be one step that was completed wrong that caused the rest of the answer to not be correct. I will work with the students to help determine where the question was answered wrong so that the students do not continue to make the same mistake repeatedly. I know how it feels to be ridiculed by classmates and teachers for answering a question wrong, and I do not want my students to feel the pain I felt by being mocked for stating the wrong answer. I want my students to be able to help one another out so that the class can be successful as a group.

8 Task #3 An aspect of an emotionally safe classroom is addressing student emotions. The biology of students is dramatically different, and there will be days when students are carrying burdens that cause for different types of outbursts. There could a student that is sad because a loved one passed away. If this does occur, I want the student to know that I am there for them if they need a non-relative to talk to. I will allow them to step into the hallway to regain their composure or go

    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.
