In order to establish control before beginning instruction, students need a way to stop what they are doing so they can listen out for instruction. I envision myself using different strategies, such as having students stop and put their hands on their head, clapping patterns with my hands, and counting down from five to establish control of the class before I begin instruction. This will manage the classroom by making instructions clear and saving time by not having to repeat directions.

Mindset and Grit= Success. This site has lots of research and practical teaching ideas for ways to help students set and obtain goals. It might not be exactly for behavior management, but I feel like a lot of the sentences on the left side are the REASONS students have behavior issues. So teaching them to internally and verbally talk to themselves differently should be a good tool.
