44How to Have Students Follow Classroom Procedures The number one problem in the classroom is not discipline; it is the lack of procedures and routines.
45DefinitionProcedure: a method or process for how things are to be done in a classroom. (What the teacher wants done.)Routine: what the student does automatically without prompting supervision. (What the students do automatically.)
46Why are Procedures Necessary? They’re statements of student expectations necessary to participate successfully in classroom activities, to learn, and to function effectively in the school environment.They increase on-task time and greatly reduce classroom disruptions.Classroom procedures tell a student how things operate in a classroom, thus reducing discipline problems.
47Classroom Procedures that MUST Become Routines: - Morning RoutineQuieting ClassStudents Seeking HelpMovement of Students & PapersWhat to do when students finish earlyDismissal
48Other Procedures to Consider… - How to enter the classroomWhat to do when they enter the classroomWhere to find the assignmentHow a paper is to be doneHow to get materialsWhat to do if they want to sharpen a pencilAsking a questionWorking cooperativelyEmergency drillsLining upSaying “please” and “thank you”Etc.
49An Example of a Classroom Procedure… What Can I Do Now?Free Time ActivitiesWork on unfinished assignments/homework.Study your multiplication facts.Write your spelling words 3 times.Read a good book.Make a book.Write in your JournalMake a crossword puzzle or a word find.Draw a picture or make a card for the teacher, mom, dad, grandparents, or a friend.
50Multiple Classroom Procedures in ONE Another Example…Multiple Classroom Procedures in ONEStudents will perform Bell Work immediately after entering classroom.Students will request permission from the teacher if it is an emergency to use the restroom and will carry the bathroom pass.Students will remain at their desks from the beginning of the period until the teacher dismisses the class.Students will remain seated at their desks during class unless given permission to do otherwise.Students will raise their hands and wait for permission to speak during the class period.
51The 3 Steps to Teaching Procedures Explain: State, explain, model, and demonstrate the procedure.Rehearse: Rehearse and practice the procedure under your supervision.Reinforce: Reteach, rehearse, practice, and reinforce the classroom procedure until it becomes a student habit or routine.
52NOW, GO BE THE BEST EFFETIVE TEACHER THAT YOU CAN BE & MAKE IT A GREAT YEAR! In everything you do, put GOD first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success.Proverbs 3:6
