What are you thoughts on this article? How could you use this in the future for TGIF or your future class?
I thought that was pretty informative. I actually remember a couple of teachers who specifically followed each of those ideas. Classroom habits and procedures can be a bit demeaning to the students if you overdo it, but these tactics are pretty useful in classroom control. I'll definitely have to pay attention to how I address the students during Genius Hour, because I want it to be fun, but I also have to establish control. I may need to appear more stern when I speak to the entire group, and speak more personally when I'm with one or two students. This is especially important since there are multiple age groups involved here, so each kid needs to be treated very differently.
