What are some general strategies I could use at the beginning of each class period to improve student behavior?
Be sure that you have established and taught the behavior expectations students will need to be successful in your class. Just as younger children do, high school students need and benefit from clear instruction about school behavior expectations. It is helpful to reference those expectations when you give students feedback (including praise) about their behaviors. Also, expert classroom managers utilize routines to ensure that students can independently get situated for class and know what to expect. Finally, precorrect predictable problem behaviors by reminding students what you want them to do immediately prior to situations where they typically have problem behaviors.
