An appropriate response would be, “My name is Megan and I like monkeys.” The teacher then calls on a second student and has her repeat the preceding student’s name and choice. The third student called must then repeat the information for the ___________ two students. This procedure repeats until all of the students have been identified, each student responsible for one more name than the last.

13.  Begin class with an Introductory __________ Activity (IEA). This is also known as a pre-operational set or “warm-up.” The IEA allows the class to begin as the students enter the room, not when the teacher decides to begin class. Most IEAs are displayed in the same prominent location every day so the students can see them as they enter the room. An effective IEA may ask the students to respond to a question from a _________lesson or begin previewing today’s lesson.

Make sure it contains the home and work phone numbers and names of their parents or legal guardians, as well as the best time to reach them.

If class control is a problem, avoid writing on the chalkboard because it requires you to turn your back on the class.
19.  In many cases, subtle disciplinary responses are better suited to ____________ problems and preventing them from ______________ because they provide opportunities for the teacher to remind the students of existing class rules in a ______________ way, and they do so without affecting the flow of the lesson.
20.  Enforce class rules in a clear, fair and consistent manner. All of the rules apply to ______ of the students. Do not enforce your policies for _______ students but not for others. Furthermore, ensure that equal punishments are meted out for equal behavioral infractions. Once students suspect that you __________ one student over another, even if those suspicious are groundless, your leadership in the classroom has been compromised. Students expect you to be fair, and in their situation, you would expect the same.

It shows that the trainer is in control of the space. Similarly, to tame your own savage beasts, you should be the first in and last out of your room in order to stake your claim that it is your territory and that peaceful coexistence with you in that territory requires abiding by your rules. Use in conjunction with an IEA.
25.  The one problem with which almost all beginning teachers struggle is controlling _____________ student behavior.
26.  The Big Picture I noticed once that a particular teacher always stood in the doorway and shook hands with each student that entered his class.
