Technique #29 -- Do Now An activity for students to do as they enter class. An effective "Do Now" should meet the following criteria:

**Can be done without teacher support
**Should take three-five minutes
**Should have a written product
**Should preview today's lesson Have a plan for students' arrival into class.

**Have materials ready for students to pick up as they enter the classroom
**Ensure students know where to sit.
**Designate a place for students to turn in work
without being prompted.
**Post class objectives, agenda, and homework, along with an initiation activity. There are 5 principles of classroom culture: Discipline: "The process of teaching someone the right way to do something." Technique 30: Tight Transitions Class time is valuable!

Put class time to better use by having quick routines that students can do without much assistance from the teacher. Technique 31: Binder Control “Care enough about and demonstrate the importance of what you teach to build a system for the storage, organization, and recall of what your students have learned” Technique 32:
SLANT Sit up.
Ask and answer questions.
Nod your head.
Track the speaker. Chapter 5 - Creating a strong classroom culture Teach Like A Champion Management: "The process of reinforcing behavior by consequences and rewards." -TEACH what successful learning looks like! Effective classrooms need a management system.
Don't over rely! Students become insensitive. Control: "Your capacity to cause someone to choose to do what you ask, regardless of consequences." Involves asking in a way that makes them more likely to agree to do it. Look them in the eye, speak firmly but respectfully and use kindness. Reserve judgement! Not "calm down" but "please return to your seat and begin writing in your journal." Be specific, clear and caring. Influence: "Inspiring students to believe, want to succeed, and want to work for intrinsic reasons." "Success happens when kids want it for themselves and when it is real ... without you there and without you managing it." Engagement: "Give students plenty to say yes to, plenty to get involved in, plenty to lose themselves in... involved in productive, positive work." "Keep students positively engaged not just so that they are too busy to see opportunities to be off task but because after a while, they start to think of themselves as positively engaged people." Variations:
SSLANT - include "smile"
Sit up.
Track the speaker.
Ask and answer questions like a scholar.
Respect those around you. Technique 33:

verbal and nonverbal shorthand for reminders. A phrase to indicate that
students should be prepared to begin class.

Use a standard consequence.
Provide tools without consequence (pencils, paper) to those who recognize the need before class.
Include homework. Transition routines are only effective if they are used consistently so that they become habitual Transitions should take less than 30 seconds

Transitions should be quick, orderly, and silent Training for and practicing transitions
might seem like a waste of time
but it should be thought of as an investment Transitions can be fun for students
create songs for them to sing
challenge them to complete transitions faster Have a required place for notes in a required binder that stays in the classroom
Have a required method for organizing papers within the binder
Take time during class to ensure that students can put new materials in their binder correctly
