:he la2out o+ the %lassroom means that some students are sittin* #a2 in the ba%4. I +ind this to be a problem #hen doin* #or4 at the board or *oin* throu*h Po#erPoint slides. :he room +eels ver2 %ramped to me. O+ten I +ind the +ront seats are too %lose to the utilit2 table at the +ront o+ the room and ma4e it a#4#ard to move +rom one side o+ the room to the other. :he lab ben%hes are onl2 used #hen needed and reall2 ta4e up more spa%e than the2 are #orth in the %urrent %on+i*uration. :here is a lar*e amount o+ unused spa%e in the ba%4 o+ the room. I+ it #as m2 room I #ould ma2be move the board to the side o+ the room and let the students sit in a #ide %on+i*uration #ith the tea%her)s des4 not the +o%us o+ the room. I thin4 this #ould ma4e it easier to 4eep ever2one involved in dis%ussions and also *ive the tea%her a %loser +eelin* to the students. !. "+ter observin* the tea%her and student behaviors asso%iated #ith instruction an" aca"emic -or./ re+le%t on the impa%t the observed behaviors have on %reatin* the %lassroom learnin* %ommunit2.

"lthou*h some o+ them %an be rambun%tious he usuall2 +inds #as to redire%t those students or remove them +rom the e.uation. I %an tell that man2 o+ the students #ant to please him and do their #or4 even thou*h the2 ma2 not reall2 #ant to or %are about #hat the2 are learnin*. It helps that 'r. (lamand al#a2s has somethin* +or them to be doin*/ listenin* to/ or #or4in* on. '2 plans +or a%ademi% #or4 are to set hi*h e$pe%tations +or the students and ma4e sure that I ma4e them a%%ountable +or their #or4. I thin4 it is important to tr2 and ma4e them thin4 +or themselves/ even thou*h at times this seems di++i%ult or impossible. :he students I tea%h seem to #ant ever2thin* eas2. (or e$ample the last a%tivit2 #e/ some o+ the students #ere li4e 7%an)t #e 9ust do notesB8 I hope that I %an instill some %on+iden%e in them that the2 are their o#n person #ith their o#n ideas that are valid.

In%lude an2 additional te%hni.ues 2ou #ould implement in 2our %lassroom. :he most e++e%tive te%hni.ue I see is removin* a student #ho is %ausin* an2 ma9or problem or disruption +rom the %lassroom. -e removin* them the2 do not #in the attention *ame. It also has impli%ations on other students as the2 no lon*er have a ma9or distra%tion. >suall2 #hen the2 are allo#ed ba%4 in the behavior improves. One thin* I have noti%ed is that 'r.
