Nr 3 av 40 decisions every teacher must make.
Decide your type of entrance into a room.
You have three choices. A. A passive, informal, defensive, or laid-back entrance. B. A neutral, unobtrusive, non-descript entrance. C. An offensive, positive, ”we’re going to get a lot of things done” entrance. You can also close a door in these three ways or say ”Good morning” in these three ways.
Your challenge: Experiment with different ways of entering a room. Try out option C. but do it your way.
Observe your own and the group’s reactions. Just remember, the students are watching you and making a decision about your caring, your ambition, your determination, your relatedness, your readiness, and your politeness.
