Behavior Management Tips: Tardiness, Order, and More


Use quizzes, organization, and rewards to help promote positive classroom behaviors.


Tardiness Troubles

Troubled by tardiness. Start giving quick extra-credit quizzes at the beginning of every class.


Messy, Messy. Messy

To help students behave appropriately, keep your classroom orderly. Messy or disorderly classrooms can encourage inappropriate behavior.


Coupons, Coupons!

Encourage exceptionally good behavior with "classroom coupons." Award such coupons as "No Homework for a Day," "Ten Minutes of Free Time," "Lunch with the Teacher," and so on for students who make that extra effort.
