"Time to Teach™"
Eliminate student disciplinary problems, and meet the increasing demands on student performance.
*Research-based, results-driven staff development training*
"Time To Teach has transformed the culture and climate of our school. Teachers and students are in sync with consistent schoolwide behavioral expectations. The success of this system is seen in the validation of our school being honored as a California State Distinguished School" Dr. Johnny Alvarado, Principal, Kastner Intermediate School, Fresno, CA
Time To Teach™ is a research based, highly successful set of classroom management strategies that tens of thousands of teachers have been using for over four decades. These strategies help teachers become more effective in the classroom.
There are 5 core components of Time to Teach. They are:
Student Mood Awareness/Rapid Teacher Response
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.
Classroom rules and routines are explained, modeled, and practiced in mini lessons called "Teach To's". They are explicit and consistent throughout the school year.
Once teachers have taught the rules and routines (such as how to raise hand, asking for help, etc), an effective instructional climate is created.
REFOCUS (tm) 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 .
Student and Teacher Relationships
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 Arrangement and Design
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.
Our goal is not to replace school discipline systems or programs currently in place – although because of our success this occurs weekly in schools across America. Schools may adopt our entire set of strategies to deliver positive systemic cultural change or may use bits and pieces to augment their current education programs
Time to Teach is trademarked by The Center for Teacher Effectiveness.
