Running the Room: The Teacher's Guide to Behaviour
About this deal
I’ve always been a big fan of routines and Running the Room reaffirmed this practice for me. Explicit routines prevent behaviour problems from arising and helps create the class culture and norms. My classes have routines for starting a lesson, ending a lesson, entering different classrooms, how to transition between activities, etc. I have sometimes thought I was going overboard with the routines in terms of their detail and how we actually acted them out. E.g. We would practise how to line up, enter the classroom, etc. We go through these routines and practice them at the start of every term.

It is specific to the space in which you teach.' You cannot judge a person's technique by simply watching them in the moment, if they have taught the class for some time. Much of what they have done to build these great relationships has been done in the past. All you are seeing is the fruit of their labour. So don't judge yourself against this, or simply try to copy it.' Create a class culture where it is the norm for students to behave in a way that lets them and others learn.
