Teach Like a Champion Technique 33: On your mark

Show students how to prepare effectively for each class with pen, paper etc., and expect them to do so every day.

  • Be explicit about what students need to start class
  • Set a time limit
  • Use a standard consequence
  • Provide tools without consequence (pens, pencils etc) to those who recognise the need before class
  • Include homework
