Reacting to Minor Misbehavior

Oftentimes it feels easier to ignore small potatoes misbehavior in class. Responding can feel like unnecessary confrontation, and could distract you from the flow of the lesson. But ignoring can't be an option - your expectations are in place because they're the backbone of a good learning environment.

Reacting to minor misbehavior doesn't have to be confrontational or distracting. If you can practice consistency and automaticity, holding firm on your classroom's unique core expectations will feel like business as usual.
