Classroom Management Module 7

Using Prompts and Reminders

This module is focused on the teacher’s use of prompts and cues. In terms of having a positive effect on behavior, there is nothing more immediate than simply providing students with reminders. In fact, you probably use prompts more at the class level than you do for individuals. Think about all the times you put a finger to your lips, point to an expectation, or blink the lights to nudge students into appropriate behavior.
