Beginning of Class Behavior

Found in: journaling; routines & procedures

With talkative classes, I have found that assigning journals helps get the class on task immediately. The students know they should be writing in their notebooks when the bell rings, or they will give me their time at the end of class. When the bell rings, I write down names of those who are not on task. I call out the names of students as I write. Walking among them with the book also helps.

The difficult part is reminding them at the end of class to stay, otherwise the students forget or say they forgot. If they leave without permission, the student is issued a detention (call home may be helpful). If detentions are not served, a referral is made to the administration.
