Challenge #1: Inadequate instructions
-Prepare your instructions ahead of time.
-Make them short, logical and clear.
-Develop a routine for giving instructions. Be consistent in following this routine throughout the year.
-Use an attention grabber associated with giving- instructions routines. It must be a part of the routines and it must ring the bell at the level of the student to stop doing anything at hand and focus.
-Give your instructions while students are focusing. This must be done:
- before distributing any handout, manipulative, etc. to students.
- before starting any activity
- before changing the seating
- before going outdoor, if the activity necessitates going outside the classroom.
-Ask one of the easily distracted Students to repeat your instructions to be sure that students received them the way you want it.
-Always make your instructions as bullets and points. And announce them as first, second and third ( if more one instruction must be given)
-It is good to have these routine on board so that you point to them every time you give instructions. This is another visual representation that helps enhancing the routine.
-Hold students accountable for the given work.
