Avoiding Classroom Distractions: The Teacher Face

Students look for signals and explicit signs to help them navigate the classroom. The teacher face is a great way to signal to the class that things have gotten off track.


Probably my favorite way to deal with those really annoying classroom distractions, particularly interruptions, is to just stop talking in the middle of a sentence. Cause the whole class knows that if you just stop talking something is wrong and they all start looking around wondering who it's directed at. But it’s not mean in a sense that I'm calling someone out, but it’s letting them know that their behavior is not acceptable. In addition, the ever popular teacher stare really freaks kids out.
