Time to Teach is an evidence based classroom management model, which uses practical, proven, and powerful strategies to deal with classroom behavior. Time to Teach has been used in schools for over forty years.
There are 5 core components of Time to Teach. They are:
Student Mood Awareness/Rapid Teacher ResponseTop of Page
When a student is becoming disruptive, teachers remain calm. When teachers exhibit self-control and can read their students' moods, they react swiftly, calmly, and compassionately.
REFOCUS allows teachers to eliminate multiple warnings and repeated requests for low level behaviors. Disciplinary actions are done quickly, calmly, and professionally. Children are given a choice and provided guidance and correction when needed.
REFOCUS is a 4-6 minute process which asks students to answer (in writing) the following questions and is followed by a brief teacher/student conference.
Good relationships are the keystone to well run classrooms. If students are aware that the teacher values them as human beings, they will be more likely to work hard and less likely to challenge the teacher.
Classroom cleanliness, orderliness, and character influence student's behavior, and arrangement of classroom furniture affects what can be accomplished in the classroom. Teachers arrange the room and set procedures with this in mind.
