• Treat students with respect!
o Practice good demeanor in the class, and keep it consistent.
o Although we may feel stressed, try to always maintain a positive attitude in front of your students.
Creating positive, meaningful relationships in the classroom will increase student engagement and achievement in the classroom
Knowing your students and having positive relationships with them can also reflect in how you and your students handle bullying situations!
They will do what you expect them to do, so set expectations!
Expectations should be established the second the students walk in

Pull from what the students already know
• "Right There" – - Questions which the answer can be found literally “right there” in the reading/passage. The reader doesn’t have to do much other than scan the text. This is the most popular type of question on summative assessments, especially in social studies classes.
o According to the passage, How many, Who is, What is, etc.
o Ex: What year did World War II start? What is the definition of atomic?
• "Think and Search" - Questions which the answer is within multiple sentences or paragraphs. The reader then must put the information together from the different locations to come up with the correct answer.
o Summarize, List, How many, What caused, Compare, Explain, etc.
o Ex: What caused World War II? Why were atomic bombs dropped during war
• "In My Opinion" –- The answer is not in the text at all. You can answer this question without reading the text. The answer is based solely on the reader’s opinion, knowledge, and experience. However, you may back up your opinion with facts from the passage.
o In your opinion, Based on your experience, Think about someone/something you know, etc.
o In your opinion, do you think we should have gotten involved in World War II? Why or why not?
