Summertime is a great time for educators to get back into shape and improve their health! And it’s easy! Sometimes even the smallest health adjustment can have a big impact on your well-being!

Janelle sums up her article thusly, in a paragraph entitled Do Something That You Love: “As you begin this summer journey of a better you, you may notice that you enjoy the extra energy that you have. With this newfound vitality, you should start doing something that you love and enjoy. When was the last time that you played tennis or jumped on a trampoline? Go out and find something that is active that you love to do. You will be happy and healthier because of it.”

Classroom Management: Procedures

Procedures are a part of life that helps promote stability. For instance, a procedure is always followed for any kind of doctor appointment – that procedure almost always entails the monitoring of blood pressure, the measuring of patient’s body temperature, and quick overall glance at the patient’s physical stature. Procedures are also followed for driving, cooking, and just about every other facet of daily life.

Today on TeachHUB.com, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox looks at classroom management procedures designed to foster a sense of community and culture, and why it’s important to teach and implement them.

Janelle’s procedural tips include those aimed at addressing even the most basic classroom topics:

    Entering the classroom
    Leaving the classroom
    Asking a question
    And more!

In closing, Janelle notes that effective teachers spend lots of time emphasizing their procedures, and that efficient classrooms are usually due in part to the strict following of procedures.
