Reflection: Routines and Procedures The Shape of Things - Section 2: Shake it Up Experiment


I have a very talkative class, and getting their attention quickly is important. In order to get their attention we have a call back that helps them stop what they are doing and gives everyone the chance to stop to listen. I do this by selecting a university cheer or slogan. For example, I say "Bear" and they say "Down." This is for the University of Arizona. We also have one for the Oregon Ducks. I say "Yell" and they yell back "O." When doing this, I say it at least four times and on the final time, the class should be quiet and ready to listen.
