Reflection: Routines and Procedures Discovery: Who Are Scientists? - Section 2: Ready. Set. Engage!

 

There is a balance between boredom and confusion when teaching and practicing routines.  Spend too much time and it is boring, not enough and it is confusing.  I find the first days especially difficult because the students are so nervous they are hard to read.  This is one reason I tend not to teach too many of these basics on day one.  Pretty much the only thing that I cover is how to start class the next day.  The first week we will slowly cover most routines as they authentically appear.  The second week I will start my reward tickets.  The third week I will start my collaborative check and accountability system.
