Part Five of a Series Just for New Teachers
Prevention Is One Key to a Productive Classroom Atmosphere
Although difficult and challenging students can be found in every school setting, one of the most important hallmarks of a classroom where all students are supported and valued is that many possible problems have simply been prevented. Veteran teachers know that it is far easier to spend the time and effort necessary to prevent misbehavior rather than to have to cope with the stressful aftermath of a behavior incident. In the slides in this part of the series, you will find a variety of ways to prevent or at least mitigate classroom problems.
The first five slides below are self-explanatory suggestions for ways that you can help the students in your classroom succeed.
