As school is about to begin in LAUSD, some ideas to get the school year started off right:
- Take the time to get to know your students and enlist them in their own success.
- Establish routines for starting class.
- Establish a signal that indicates when student should stop talking and give their full attention.
- Give clear directions.
- Create a strategy for kids to request help.
- Provide opportunities for collaboration.
- Plan a high-quality curriculum.
