Effective Group Management - Tamra Myers
Managing student behavior throughout the year relies on establishing conditions that prevent or discourage behavior problems before they occur. By designing instruction that actively involves all students, holds students accountable for their work, and provides variety and a sense of progress, teachers maximize student work involvement. While delivering instruction, teachers who demonstrate awareness of student actions, manage smooth transitions between activities and maintain a sense of momentum can minimize student misbehavior. Targeted Audience: Educators and Support Staff.
