Motivation Ability Support Clear goals Focused Practice Engagement Quality instruction Commitment Emotional stability Behavior/attitude I also feel like I influence all of them. But In the classroom environment, I control setting clear learning goals both short and longer term, providing quality instruction and focused practice. I also provide a safe and supportive classroom. There are so many things that go on outside of my classroom that I can not change so my focus has to be on the differences I can make.

Hmm... Attitude Engagement Support Which one do I control? I influence all of them but control none.

Engagement, security, expectations Of those, I can control security and my expectations. I make it known from day one what I expect from my students and that them disappointing me is not one of my expectations. I expect them to do their best in my class, and I will not accept anything less. I also make apparent, on day one, that my classroom is a safe, loving, need-fulfilling environment. If they ever need anything to help them feel safer at school, home, or work, I will move mountains to make sure they get it.

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
