Thought of the day: be proactive, not reactive


Don’t try to manage 100 things at once as they are happening. Stop and start again if necessary.

Have a backup plan.

Plan for the worst case scenario.

Build classroom management into the lesson content and structure.

Teach behaviour explicitly if necessary. Who am I kidding – teach it anyway.

Always reflect – its the only way to improve your teaching.
