Classroom Management: Shh-ing and Pleading Does Not Work – 214

By Steven Miletto

Teaching Learning Leading K12 provides resources for classroom teachers and school-based administrators.

Getting better at classroom management requires that you be specific in who you address for what off-task behaviors and that you handle it now. Today, I am talking about the inability of more shhh-ing and pleading to help you manage student behaviors in your class. Instead, you need to follow the next three guidelines:
1. Go to the specific person(s)
2. Follow your rules and consequences
3. Don’t ignore the real issues
Thanks for listening.
