What kinds of non-verbal behaviors should I be aware of in interacting with students?

Strive to be an active listener, which means that both your words and body language are conveying that you are interested and involved in the conversation.  An important part of being an active listener involves displaying appropriate non-verbal behaviors.  Making eye contact and leaning in when a student is talking shows you are interested.  Nodding while a student is talking shows you understand and conveys that you are actively involved in the conversation.  For more information regarding how to actively listen in the classroom visit http://www.acs.edu.au/info/education/trends-opinions/listening-skills.aspx.
