Turn and Talk: Draw inferences on the difference
between these three types of teachers.
*Allows students to engage in behavior that is
not in the students’ best interest.
*Motivated by being liked by students.
*Makes excuses for the students’ behavior or
lack of academic performance.
*Heart is in the right place, but head is in the
wrong place.
*
*Basic response is negative, angry, or
sarcastic in manner.
*Motivation is to maintain control at all
times. Teacher’s own needs may be more
important than those of their students.
*They may not like their kids.
*
*
*They make statements of fact about student
behavior.
*They ask rhetorical questions.
*They make threats with no follow-through.
*They get angry and overreact.
*They engage.
*What kind of classroom culture does this
create?
*Makes no excuses for students that are
engaging in disruptive behavior.
*Maintains high academic achievement
expectations for all students.
*Is no-nonsense in front of the class.
*Nurturing in 1-1 and/or small groups.
*Is culturally responsive.

*I earn the respect of my students.
*I expect 100% engagement, 100% of the time.
*I know all of my students can behave and
meet expectations.
*I understand the expanded role of the
teacher.

Give precise directions related to:
*Physical Movement
*Verbal behavior
*Participation in the activity
*Attention getting signal
*Check for understanding…when needed
*Cue to start
*
*When I say go, silently and independently
do the warm up on the board. Go.
*When I say go, in a whisper voice, turn to
your partner and share what you think the
author’s message is.
*When I say go, push your chair in and line
up silently when your table is called.
*
*Video clip #1
*
*Independently on note-catcher, create your 3-step
directions for one of the following or a procedure
from your own classroom:
*Lining up for lunch
*Moving to another part of the classroom
*Starting your collaborative work on a math
problem
*Completing a sustained silent reading activity
*Step 1: Effectively Communicate Expectations
*Step 2: Utilize Positive Narration
*Step 3: Correct Off Task Disruptive Behavior
*Step 4: Build Nurturing Relationships with Students
*
*
*Name specific behavior without
praise
*Narrate student(s) who followed
3-step directions
*Don’t respond to students who
are off task
Guidelines:
*Narrate immediately after giving directions
*Narrate 2-3 students
*Narrate BEFORE you correct
*Emphasis on finding the opportunity to narrate
difficult students
*Narrate as often as needed-the students let you
know when they need to be narrated
*
*Kate is silently doing the warm up on the
board.
*Eddie and Cynthia are talking in a whisper
voice about the author’s message
*Jose pushed in his chair and is silently
lining up.
*
Benefits:
*Repeats directions in a positive manner
*Eliminates drawbacks of praise
*Creates positive momentum
*

*Based on the directions you wrote earlier, write
examples of positive narration in your notecatcher.

*Narrate 2, Correct 1
*Less talk is more effective (move
in, move out, don’t engage)
*Use consequences from hierarchy
*Keep verbal correction quick and direct
Example:
1) Student Name: Ethan
2) State Inappropriate Behavior: The direction was to do this
silently.
3) Corrective Action Student Chose, if Appropriate: This is your
warning. Work silently or you will choose to miss 5 min of recess.
*Pause before you speak
*Square up
*Make eye contact
*Get as close as is convenient
*
*Ted, the direction was to do the warm up silently. That’s
a warning. You can do this, get to work silently or you
will have to refocus.
*Tammy and Eduardo the directions were to use level 1
voices, this is a warning. Use level 1 voices or you will be
‘last ones out.’
*Francisco, that’s a warning. The direction was to line up
for lunch. I know you will follow directions or you will
have a consequence.

weeks. Middle School every 2-3 weeks. High

*“Eduardo, I know you earned a consequence
today that you didn’t like. I want you to know
that I believe in you and even though I have to
call home tonight, I will be excited to share
with your Uncle that you turned it around and
followed directions the rest of the day. You can
do this. I care too much about you to let you
talk when you are supposed to be learning. Get
back to work!”

Initial studies on the use of Real Time
Coaching
* Teachers find the use of bug-in-the-ear feedback useful and
“not distracting”
(Giebelhaus, 1994; Rock et al., 2009).
* Coaches find the use of bug-in-the-ear can increase their
effectiveness
(Rock et al., 2009).
* Increase teachers’ use of positive reinforcement and
improve their ability to increase student on-task behaviors
(Scheeler, 2006; Rock et al., 2009).
I
* ncrease teachers’ use of effective instructional practices
(Goodman, 2008).
*
I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the
decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal
approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood
that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess
tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or
joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of
inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all
situations, it is my response that decides whether crisis
will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child is
humanized or de-humanized.
