41: Do It On Purpose

Many times the struggles occurring in a classroom point back to a decision a teacher did or did not make. Often times its what is omitted from expectations that students exploit and that causes many obstacles teachers are currently facing in classrooms today. Tune in to hear how to do it on purpose to set students and yourself up for success. (Bonus: Free planning guide available- text 'transition' to 33444)

Set up thorough routines and procedures
PTCA = plan, teach, consistency and accountability
When you are consistent and hold students accountable, they get into shape pretty quickly
If you don’t take charge in the first 10 min, no wonder a principal doesn’t want to hire you
10 min a day x 180 = 1,800 min a year = 30 hours = 5 days of additional instruction
Transitions = Time, Materials, Order, Volume and Pathway
Reflection is key to improvement
