It is important to get a student’s full attention before teaching or giving directions because it fosters and maintains a respectful learning environment for teacher and students.
Consistency improves a student's response because the more often you use signals in the classroom, the more often you will get the desired response that you want. Students overtime merely become conditioned to it and learn what you are expecting when a certain signal is made or said.
