6.  Seize opportune moments to instruct students how to “__________ __________.” Whether it involves a classroom situation or an outside recess activity, specific instruction concerning how to pick teams, how to line up, how to pass in single file, and how to handle disagreements, when reinforced at the teachable moment, are effective in preventing future problems.          
7.  As a new teacher, it is helpful to visualize student problems in advance and prepare options for their remediation.

8.  Learn the students’ _________ as quickly as possible. The sooner, the better, so the first day is the best. Experienced teachers often have an opening ___________ involving the use of their students’ names to help them to remember them more quickly. One such activity asks the student to name something they like that begins with the same letter as their name. 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. The teacher ends the activity by naming all of the students before the instructional period is over. Calling a student by name is a powerful tool.
9.  Ensure that your students are able to keep up with the ____________. A student that is hopelessly ___________, for whatever reason, is a potential classroom disruption waiting to explode.

Use in conjunction with an IEA.
12.  The _____________ of ____________ between a teacher and his students is commensurate with his potential success in the classroom. After all, one cannot enforce rules that aren’t first understood by all parties involved. 
13.  Sometimes students do not want to do what is in their best interest. When that happens the teacher needs a tool box full of responses that vary from ____________ and passive to _______________ and aggressive in order to deal with any discipline problems that arise. Additionally, a narrative is included that helps identify reasons for student misbehavior and how to tweak your disciplinary plan for maximum effectiveness. A sample Student Behavioral __________ and an Office Referral Form are available for use or modification.
14.  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.
15.  Appropriate student deportment is critical to establishing and maintaining a __________ ___________.

Make sure you ___________ the parameters of your activities, rather than forcing your students to improvise as the activities unfold. 
20.  It is the job of the teacher to move all students toward ____________.
21.  It is the teacher’s responsibility to _________ and enforce the rules. If the students _______ create the rules for their own classroom, they are more likely to remember and abide by them.

Tactics are presented which allow the teacher to facilitate the development of their own rules that coincide with existing school rules.

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. Other teachers allow a grace period for turning in late work while other teachers do not accept late assignments.
