My Teacher Look: Get Students Back on Track Transcript
My teacher look.
All teachers need a teacher look.
When students are not meeting expectations, I try to take into account what they need, and the best way in which to redirect them. So, for a lot of my students, calling them out publicly is not always the best way to redirect them. In fact, it can often set them off in a tailspin. So... At this point in the year, students are pretty familiar with what my teacher look looks like.
And they know, that it’s a precursor if behavior doesn't change, to a public callout. And so it sort of gives them the respect of, I'm giving you a chance to get back in line right now. And, its private, its between you and I. But, it won't be if this continues 5 minutes from now. So, I think its a way of actually honoring and respecting students in what they need, while still redirecting them so their focus is on learning.
