Jon Cowart

1. What do you see as the highest leverage step in the behavior management cycle? What will move your classroom management the most if you do it right? What will be challenging? What will be easy?
Jon Cowart
04:53
2. What is a burning question / topic you want to discuss?
Kirshna
05:40
2. a. How do you call all investors randomly?!b. How do you set up expectations for TPR?
Josh Rooke
05:52
I would love to hear if you have any tips related, specifically, to starting the school year strong.
Erica
06:43
Burning question: Day one—do you have students come in quietly and complete their do now’s silently? Do you positively narrate as you’re greeting students at the door?
Hellga
09:25
1. The highest leverage is the relationship piece, I think. Giving well-timed consequences is really important.
Hellga
10:48
2. I do (think) I care about my students but at the same time I am not really interested in their jobs or extra curricular activities unless there is a problem. Then I am interested in listening and learning and helping. How can I get more interested in the good parts of their lives?
Ashley Maxwell
11:10
1. About giving consequences-we do not have demerits/ merits at our school and we cannot assign d-hall, so what do you suggest?
kristenwolf
13:37
Any thoughts on how some of this can translate to after school elementary classes? Our aim is to remain fun, with structure and learning, obviously!
Josh Rooke
15:51
Thank you!! That is really helpful!
Hellga
18:18
Can you / Would you share the survey you hand out day 1?
Therese
18:27
I struggle most with responding in the moment when something negative happens - a student willfully doesn't follow directions for example. I feel like I'm a deer in headlights. Also, it seems like a lot of your content comes from Teach Like a Champion stuff. Do you, or they, have videos modeling first weeks of school setting up routines, etc.? It would be so helpful to see it modeled.

What are ways I can do a whole classroom reset on day one? I am the only Latin teacher at my school, so I have the exact same section of students. We ended 6th grade together on a bad foot and I lost control of the classroom by the end of the year. I'm worried that they'll walk in on day one of 7th grade in September and automatically be resistent to any changes I try to make to improve classroom management.
Kirshna
24:31
How did you organize/track those merit/demerit systems?
jcheng3n
27:00
Do you have a premade demerit and merit point system that you can share with word?
gretchen
28:45

Hellga
38:35
Hang the name plate around their neck (knitting yarn as the necklace part)
Erica
41:45
how do you make your consequence ladder explicit to students? Do you just tell them verbally? Do you post it in the classroom?
Teri
42:22
What do you do if students lose their weekly packet-or do you have them keep them in the classroom?
Alison Moran
42:23
do demerits and merits translate to a grade in participation? if so - how?
kristenwolf
43:08
I say “ What are you most proud about from the summer?"
jcheng3n
43:09

jcheng3n

I teach in an elementary proficiency program. my students have taken French since 1st grade for 135 min per week. this year my admin has put 38 special ed kids in our classes 4&5 and they have never been in French. I'm distraught that my class is the cog wheel of scheduling... Am I alone that this is unfair to all students?!!!
jcheng3n
54:14
Hot spot. My principal just went over saying don't say certain things in class. How am I suppose to follow his instructions while still doing hot spot?
Lynne Burns
54:46
I love the no warnings thing and immediately writing the kid's name on your clipboard as their first consequence. I think giving too many warnings has been one of my biggest management mistakes. My question is, what is the actual consequence when you write the kid's name down? Or is that it? "I'm writing your name down because you did x. If this continues, y will happen."

How do you spread star of the day student? I did it everyday and it got boring real fast. I had a class of 30. Would you do it all?

How many questions are in your interview?
Hellga
01:10:09
That was a really good lesson on Star Student lesson. I have not done it because I couldn’t do that. Now I can’t wait!
Holly
01:10:32
are the kids responding in TL?
Kirshna
01:10:46
I'm doing one tomorrow!!
tstenzel
01:10:52
How do you get your students to do a job? Are they rewarded?
Hellga
01:10:59
Yes, they do but they may not in sentences. That is one reason why you repeat what they are saying
Holly
01:11:32
oh right! -but I mean the persona especial?
Hellga
01:12:10

I just attended a 2 day Mike Peto conference. So good. Go see him if you have the chance. Anyway, he picks 5 questions for student interviews and puts them up on the screen. He numbers them from 5 down to 1 so everyone knows what's next.
Alison Moran
01:12:31
it's silly how teachers are claiming techniques like Star student! let's not be vain. Bryce is not the first to do it!
Heather
