Summary of the First Day

1. Have your students sit in assigned seats.

2. Walk from one to the next asking for their nickname.

3. Don’t start class until all students are quiet and all eyes are on you.

4. Use the “nonjudgemental stare” to handle inattentiveness or inappropriate behavior.

5. Cover only those rules which are immediately necessary. Other rules can wait until another day.

6. Begin with a lesson that keeps you in control and the class quiet and attentive.

7. Design a lesson plan that will naturally extend into the next day.

8. Homework directions should be written on the board.

9. Don’t begin with difficult or overly challenging material.

10. Keep your students on task until you say it’s time to stop.
