being in the moment
Being in the Moment
  • Actively engaged (focused and listening )in lessons, discussions, and meetings.
    • Minds are not wandering to what is for lunch or what to do when they get home
  • Any problems or issues are “left at the door” so that students can concentrate solely on the subject being discussed.
    • If there is a serious problem, let me know early before class begins
appropriate body language or listening positions
Appropriate Body Language (or Listening Positions)
  • Posture is very important to attention and listening skills.
  • Five points to Listening Positions:
    • Sit up straight – feet on the floor under the desk, chair pulled in, and all four feet of the chair touching the floor
    • Empty Hands on Desk
    • Eyes on the Speaker – student speaker or teacher
    • Remain quiet
    • Actively listen
appropriate eye contact
Appropriate Eye Contact
  • Eye to eye, or, in the very least, eye to face or lips when not writing notes
  • Eye contact is important in communication
  • Not “staring down,” rolling eyes, laying your head down, or looking around.
appropriate feedback
Appropriate Feedback
  • Responses are on-topic, genuine, authentic, and students best effort!
  • Raise your hands
  • Never yell out responses, especially if someone else is talking
questions to clarify or validate
Questions to Clarify or Validate
  • The questions should be a specific inquiry
  • It is the student’s responsibility to state when they are unclear about a topic
Prompt –
  • Arrive to class on-time – sit silently, working on the opener while attendance is taken (students should be in class before the bell, but not necessarily in seats)
  • Return to class from library, restroom, etc. in a timely manner
  • Transition quickly from one activity to the next
  • Turn work in on-time
Prepared –
  • Come to school ready to learn.
  • Paper, sharpened pencil, pen -blue or black- and binder on desk (always have agenda on hand)
  • Homework completed and ready to turn in
  • Prepare your bodies with proper sleep, hygiene, and food (remember/respect class rules concerning food).
  • Treat all students and staff respectfully (respect others’ opinions – realize your actions effect others)
  • Polite words include “Please”, “Thank you,” “Excuse me,” “I’m sorry,” and “Pardon me.” (the Golden Rule)
  • It also includes calling others by their proper name
  • Raising your hand and waiting to be called upon (don’t talk over others)
  • Bullying, gossip, and any other dehumanizing or demoralizing behavior will not be tolerated (don’t snap at others, don’t talk about others, no hurtful words, don’t be a hater, respect others’ belongings)
positive mental attitude
Positive Mental Attitude –
  • Maintain a positive attitude in class. (No complaining, whining, or groaning about work and be positive about the work you do - Say “I can do this”– give positive feedback – don’t be a grouch –Don’t make others suffer because you’re in a bad mood)
  • Every attempt should be made to leave issues and problems at the door and walk into class committed to trying your best (try to smile and have a high self esteem)
  • If something you can’t just leave at the door has happened, let me know and we’ll work something out
Participate –
  • Actively participate in classroom discussions with relevant talk as well as with partner or group work (stand up and voice your opinion – give feedback during discussions – volunteer)
  • Always try your best/be alert and actively engaged in your classroom community (always work with and be active with your groups – listen to and follow directions – Listen to others when they are speaking)
  • No Sleeping!!!!
  • ????? ask questions (if you don’t understand, ask)
Produce –
  • Complete, on your own, and turn in all assignments (in class and homework – be able to give a relevant opinion of what is being discussed)
  • You will be expected to always turn in your best product (try your best – you won’t always be right, but at least try – don’t just slop stuff down, try your best)
