Presented with warmth, humor, and enthusiasm by acclaimed educator, author, and speaker Harry K. Wong, this classic video lecture introduces the concept of establishing classroom procedures and routines. Dr. Wong conveys how procedures are the cornerstone of classroom management. A procedure is a step—a task to be performed for something to be done, such as downloading an app, landing an airplane, quieting a class, or obtaining an assignment upon returning from an absence. Procedures are not rules; they are steps to be done for success and achievement to occur. A procedure is what the teacher wants the students to do in the classroom. A routine is what the student does automatically without prompting or supervision. With procedures, you can have responsible students. Responsibility is the ability to respond to appropriate procedures. Part of the series The Effective Teacher. (55 minutes)
