Principles of My Classroom 
My classroom will spark the interest of my students, allow for the students to be hands, and apply the information to the real world to retain information better.In my classroom students will learn to problem solve, work with others, be selfreliant and ready for the real world. 
Redirecting Negative Behavior During WholeClass Instruction 
 Ask the student to rejoin
 Reassure the student that the topic may be frustrating but we will work thru it
 Tell them about the consequences that can occur for there actions
 Redirect fast to not lose a lot of class time

Redirecting Negative Behavior During Individual Instruction/Worktime 
 See if they have any question or show they were I may have gotten confused
 Work with student one on one
 Tell them the benefits of getting the work done now
 Step outside of the classroom and see how their day is going

Redirecting Negative Behavior During Group Collaboration Time 
 Tell different options are okay to have we just need to keep our head on straight
 Math can be solved in multiple ways justify your answer in a calm voice
 Try to avoid people who bt heads in the same group
 Divide larger groups into smaller ones for less options
 If collaboration is not possible let them work alone

Addressing Negative Behavior One on One 
First:Talk one on one with the student
Second: Talk with other instructor see if it’s just in your class
Third: Talk with parents
Last: Send to higher authority
While talking with the student
 See what we can do tomorrow to have a awesome day
 Open ended question (so they can talk and find out what they are truly mad about)
Follow thru!
