How teaching classroom procedures affects students' time on task
Classroom procedures are an important part of classroom management. The research question addressed was, how does teaching classroom procedures affect sixth grade students' time on task? The motivation for this topic was that the author struggled with classroom management. She started to notice that introducing classroom procedures made students aware of their expectations and lead to a more organized classroom. A classroom study and student survey was used to gather data. The results of the study were that students decreased the time it took to complete a procedure and were more aware of expectations when taught the procedures at the beginning of the year. Moreover, consistency and follow through on expectations held students accountable to those expectations. The result was smoother and faster transition times.
