     OUR CHILDREN ARE…
     *Humanity’s most precious resource because they are
     our future!
     *Sadly, they are an endangered species because:
1.   The dropout rate is extremely high!
2.   Each night more than 100,000 children are homeless, and
     this does not include run away from home or have been
     kicked out of the house.
3.   The intact family, of responsible parents who teach
     values, seldom exists.
4.   The business world knows that the next generation of
     workers will not be as qualified as this generation.
5.   Children are caught in many cultural and social problems:
     drugs, permissiveness, poverty, teen pregnancy, broken
     homes, and falling academic standards.
6.   Whereas each generation has had a better life than each
     past generation, the next generation could quite possibly
     be the first generation to be worse off than the previous
     We NEED leader teachers,
professional educators who will begin
this revitalization of our culture and
                values:

 We may be the only stable adult in
  their lives.
 We may be the only people able to
  pass culture onto them…
 We may be their only hope, the only
  ones who dream of a brighter
  tomorrow for them…

        PRESENTATION
 Harry Wong has been in the field of
  education for 35 years.
 Wrote the #1 best selling book for
  educators titled,

    “How To Be An Effective Teacher”
      THE FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL
   THE FIRST DAYS ARE
        CRITICAL
 What you do on the first days of
  school will determine your success for
  the rest of the year.
 You will either win or lose, so what
  you do on that very first day will be
  an accurate indicator of your success
  as a teacher.
              Got the point?
     DOUGLAS BROOKS
    DISCOVERED THAT…
 Very few teachers receive any
  information on what to do the first
  day of school.
 Very few teachers get any experience
  or training during student teaching on
  what to do the first day of school.
Have no fear… We have a few ideas!
THE EFFECTIVE TEACHER
  Establishes good control of the class in
   the very first week of school.
    Remember: Control does not involve
     threats or intimidation, but control
                means you know:
1. What you are doing
2. Your classroom procedures
3. Your professional responsibilities
4. Your students know that you know what
   you are doing!
    ON THE FIRST DAY…
 A successful teacher is ready – The
  teacher has a warm, positive attitude and
  has positive expectations that all students
  will succeed!

 The work is ready – The desks, books,
  papers, assignments and materials are
  ready when the bell rings.

 The room is ready – The classroom has a
  positive climate that is work oriented!
HINTS FOR THE FIRST DAY OF
         SCHOOL
 Start with assigning each student to a
  seat.
 Have an assignment on the board BEFORE
  the kids walk in:

  For example: “Last night I was sleeping, a
   light beamed through the window. Then…
    please complete the rest of the story.”
                 Thank You

 *Note: Have an assignment posted in the
          same location everyday!
       EVERTSON AND
         ANDERSON

 Were the first to show the
 importance of classroom management
 at the beginning of the school year.

 *Note: When a classroom is ready,
  you can prevent many misbehaviors
            from occurring!
  WHAT IS CLASSROOM
    MANAGEMENT?

Classroom management refers to all of
    the things that a teacher does to
   organize students, space, time, and
 materials so that instruction, content
  and student learning can take place!
        HINTS TO MANAGE A
     CLASSROOM SUCCESSFULLY!
1.   Clearly must define procedures and routines

2.   Effective teachers TEACH procedures and
     routines
     (rehearse them after!)

3.   Develop a signal to let students know it is time
     to begin and stay on a lesson
     (i.e. flashing a bell, raising your hand, etc).

     *Note: Research shows that effective teachers
     spend most of the first week teaching students
     to follow class procedures.
CHARACTERISTICS OF A WELL
   MANAGED CLASSROOM

 Students know what is expected of them
  and are generally successful!
 There is relatively little wasted time,
  confusion or disruption.
 The climate of the classroom is work-
  oriented, but relaxed and pleasant.
 Students are deeply involved with their
  work, especially with academic, teacher-led
  instruction.
           IN ESSENCE,

 A well managed classroom is a predictable
  environment where both teacher and
  students know what is supposed to happen
  in the classroom.
 If you manage a classroom you do not
  discipline a classroom!

     “Power comes when you make life
           predictable for people.”
                              -Howard H. Stevenson
  BEFORE YOU INTRODUCE YOUR
 RULES, CHECK TO SEE THAT YOU
      DID THE FOLLOWING:

 You have carefully planned for what you
  want to accomplish.
 You have written the rules to help you
  accomplish these goals.
 You have posted the rules, along with the
  consequences and rewards.
 You have welcomed the class, introduced
  yourself, and taken care of administrative
  duties.
 CLASSROOM RULES
1.  Classroom rules should be posted for
    the first day of school, with a copy
    ready for distribution to each student.
2. Rather than spend too much time with
    the whole class in forming rules, it may
    be better to involve the class in
    discussing matters such as:
           -Why rules are needed
  -Why a particular rule will help students
                    succeed
 -Specific examples of general rules, such
       as, “What does it mean to respect
                    others?”
EFFECTIVE TEACHERS ALSO HAVE
  AN INVITING PERSONALITY:
     EFFECTIVE             INEFFECTIVE
   “Good morning”            “Keep out”
  “Congratulations!”       “It won’t work”
 “I appreciate your     “Not bad for a girl.”
          help!”         “I don’t care what
  “Tell me about it.”           you do.”
“How can I help you?”   “You can’t do that.”
         “Yes”           “Because I said so,
                              that’s why!”
THE THREE CHARACTERISTICS
 OF AN EFFECTIVE TEACHER…
 Has positive expectations for students success.


 Is an extremely good classroom manager.


 Knows how to design lessons for student mastery.

*Note: none of these characteristics have anything to do with
  grade level or subject taught. These characteristics are
  known.
      TO BE A MORE
   EFFECTIVE TEACHER…
 WORK in a collegial manner with your
  colleagues.
 ASSOCIATE with and learn from positive
  mentors.
 JOIN a professional organization.
 CONTINUE TO LEARN through classes,
  workshops, conferences, in service
  meetings, books, journals, advanced
  degrees, etc.
    HERE’S THE BIGGEST
    SECRET TO TEACHING
         SUCCESS:
 BEG!
 BORROW!
 STEAL!

It’s really called research and learning,
   but you walk into the classrooms of
  effective teachers, look around, and
   if you see something that you think
          might help you, you say,
        “Gimme, gimme, gimme.”
 WE WOULD LIKE TO
   CONCLUDE OUR
PRESENTATION WITH
  SOME INSPIRING
   QUOTATIONS!
WE HOPE YOU ENJOY!
 Parents and teachers
   are the two most
important people on the
  face of this Earth.
The only factor that can
      create student
   achievement was the
significance of a teacher.
 The beginning is the
most important part of
       the work
 There is no way to
 create good schools
without good teachers
Classrooms should run
 like well researched
      orchestras
Life is not a destination.
     Life is a journey.
As long as you continue the
          journey,
    You will always be a
          success!
When you look at truly
effective teachers, you
  will also find caring,
 warm, lovable people.
    Love is life…
And if you miss love,
   you miss life.
Love is the reason for
       teaching!
 One hundred years from now it
  will not matter what kind of a
   car I drove, what kind of a
house I lived in, how much I had
in the bank account, or what my
        clothes looked like.
  But the world will be a better
place because I was important in
         the life of a child.
    The three AREs:
Teachers ARE important!
Teachers ARE influential!
 Teachers ARE able to
   make a difference!
Love what you teach, and
  love whom you teach!
 The two worst things a
 parent can give a young
  person are money and
          wheels.
 The two most important
things a parent can give a
child are roots and wings!
 If you touch a rock, you
  touch the past. If you
touch a flower, you touch
       the present.
If you touch a child, you
    touch the future.
     THANK-YOU!
HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
