  5. 5. Ten Tips…<br />Create a Variety of Communication Channels<br />Always Be Calm, Fair & Consistent<br />
  6. 6. consistency<br />“ We are the authors of what happens in the classroom. Students follow our lead and behave in ways that we unconsciously allow.”<br /> From, Conscious Classroom Management, Rick Smith<br />Be consistent with procedures. When students call out, we need to honour the procedure rather that the content.<br />Get all students actively on task before handling individual conversations with any of them. <br />
  7. 7. consistency<br />Stay focused on your topic even as students try to change it.<br />Teaching and re-teaching procedures.<br />Enforcing and following through with consequences.<br />Starting and ending class on time.<br />Welcoming and encouraging students.<br />
  8. 8. Relaxing into consistency<br />Being consistent doesn’t mean being a robot or machine. It arises out of our caring for our students and caring for their learning. As we combine an open resilient quality with a commitment to teach students content, behaviour, and procedures, we naturally become more consistent without losing our humanity or spontaneity.<br /> Conscious classroom management, Rick Smith<br />
