1.  Be ___________. Teachers who expect and emphasize good things in class receive more of them, and vice-versa. Students need to know what the teacher expects of them. The teacher must then create lessons that direct the students to equal or exceed this level of expectation. Before, during, and after that happens, the teacher provides a positive outlook and expects success. An experienced teacher never misses an opportunity to ____________ a child for good behavior, quality work, or continued effort.
2.  Position yourself so you can always _________ the entire class. Often teachers circulate around the room (which is a good thing), but end up turning their _________ on parts of the class for a prolonged period of time while they help a student (which is a bad thing).

9.  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. It is designed to focus the attention of the students while preparing them to learn so that the teacher may complete clerical duties such as taking ___________. Most discipline problems occur at the beginning and the end of class, and IEAs help to get the class period started on the right foot.

Most teachers develop a _____________ for easy access and entry into their record keeping system. Some teachers code late assignments to note the reason, whether excused or unexcused.
