Reactive Management Moves

Ignoring a relatively minor distraction or misbehavior is an easy choice to make. After all, maybe it was your fault for not being clear enough! But choosing not to react when students aren't meeting your expectations can erode your credibility and set you up for unnecessary confrontation in the future.

Instead, we offer a tool belt of ways to react to misbehavior. Some are subtle non-verbal moves, and others are more direct responses. They all have their place, and choosing which to employ will require good judgment and a deep knowledge of your individual students.
