I have a simple strategy to help you avoid that mistake. Here's a simple strategy to help you apply what we know about the power of words to your classroom management.
This episode is actually a recording from a talk I gave awhile back about how to prepare your words so you'll have the right thing to say at the right time when behavior goes south in your classroom.
Before you begin, you need to get your mindset right. I call the whole process Velvet over Steel. The steel is the backbone - your boundaries and commitment to consistency. I'm sure you've heard it all before.
The velvet is the key here. It's your approach to any given situation. My strategy for you today addresses your approach. It's simple, easy to incorporate and sets you up for success, and...I call it the Power Phrase.
