1. Expect kids to listen to you and to each other.
There is a high correlation between motivation and
attention of students.
2.Invite class to define respectful listening and list their ideas on a
chart or board and expect kids to be respectful listener.
3. When you want kids to listen use non verbal signs
ie Raise your hand and wait till everyone’s got their hand
in the air and then have the entire class move hand slowly
down closing all conversation down when you reach lower chin.
4.Hook up a clapper “on and off switch” so when you
clap because of their talking the clock gets clapped off.
all time wasted requires a payback.
5. Develop a rule “Whenever you take energy away from
the class you have a responsibility to give energy
back to the class.” Make a list of things students can do
to give energy to the class.
6. Use a strong assertive voice that’s stronger than the collective
voice to summon them to listen then scale voice down as soon as they
focus on you.Avoid using voice except for initial signal.
7.Break the class into two groups and have them compete against each
other for privileges based on their responsible and respectful
responses. Chart points for successful responses.
8. Teach kids to cover the ear that someone is talking in
to let you know, they know how to pay attention when you call
for their Attention.
9. Use a red and blue pencil and let them know you are charting their
listening. Blue= Listening Red = Disrespectful side conversations etc.
