Working the crowd chapter 3

  1. 1. Working the Crowd EDU 163 - Jones, F., & Jones, P. (2007). Working the Crowd. In Tools for teaching: Discipline, instruction, motivation (2nd ed.). Santa Cruz, CA: F.H. Jones & Associates.
  2. 2. Objectives • To utilize developmentally appropriate behavior management that enhance the teaching/learning process and promote students' academic success. • To make current research meaningful by relating it to application within a typical classroom • To engage, monitor, and assess students throughout the learning process.
  3. 3. Physical Proximity • A teacher’s proximity to his/her students has a direct relationship to the amount of time on task for nearer students or off task for students who are further away from the teacher. • Teachers who “work the room” are also better able to monitor and assess student learning • As always, prevention is the most effective way to manage a classroom. Controlling a crowd of students means getting “most of the students to do most of what they are supposed to be doing most of the time”. (p. 30)
  4. 4. Working the Crowd 1. Movement 2. Eye contact 3. Energy Good teachers use those 3 strategies to “work the crowd” and keep their students’ attention
  5. 5. Psychological Distance 1. Zones of Proximity – students who are further from a teacher are more likely to engage in off-task behaviors 1. Red – This area near the teacher represents an approximately 8 foot diameter around the teacher. Here students are less likely to be off task. 2. Yellow – This area is approximately 6 feet beyond the “red zone”. Students will generally do what those in the “red zone” do unless the teacher gets distracted elsewhere. These students may then get off task. 3. Green – These students are furthest from the teacher and most likely to get off task. The longer they are in the “green zone”, the more likely they are to get off task.
  6. 6. Effective Strategies 1. Work the crowd 2. Make the zones change constantly 3. Continue to make direct eye contact with individual students who are further away 4. “Provide Camouflage for Setting Limits” (p. 34) 1. Use “working the room” to your advantage 2. Notice off task kids and move towards them while continuing to do what you have been doing (scanning the room, monitoring, assessing, talking, etc.) 3. Stand near the students who were off task a little longer than usual and make additional eye contact with them if appropriate while continuing what you were doing. Avoid giving them negative attention – that is costly to the teacher.
  7. 7. Practice those Strategies! • Keep moving among the students while teaching. See how well you can keep their attention. • Use movement during guided practice to continue to monitor and assess student understanding. • Avoid teaching from the front of the room. Remember the 10,000 hour rule? It takes a lot of practice to make a new skill a habit! • Obsolete, but still relevant – Whether you sit or stand up front with a chalkboard, an overhead, a SmartBoard, an Elmo, or a computer, make yourself get up and work the room while emphasizing a point. • Use body language to your advantage – avoid embarrassing students or you will pay the price!
