Dawn -- you've spent many years in classrooms. What do you think the effects of these decisions would be on a classroom?
I can not think of 2 more questions to ask a teacher.When and If I interview a teacher. The teachers in my area are on spring break like the students.
Classrooms are multidimensional. The large numbers of events and tasks make
classrooms complex places.
Classroom events are simultaneous. Many things happen at once.
Classroom events are immediate. Things occur rapidly.
Classrooms are unpredictable. Events often take unexpected turns.
Classrooms are public. Teachers must do their jobs in “fishbowls.” I need to make these into questions where I can ask a Elementary teacher this. I NEED HELP PLEASE
o How do you handle regular daily distractions in the classroom and get the children’s attention back?
o How do you handle a child who is a constant distraction to the other children and refuses to co-operate in class participation?
