Best practices for classroom management

• Establish a consistent schedule or routine.

• Start each session by setting clear expectations.

• Have students keep individual student goal sheets (see an example in the Imagine Math Journal located under Help/Resources/Math Resources).

  • Check that sheets are up-to-date and goals are completed.
  • Establish a teacher/school-level classroom motivation system based on lessons completed (base on lessons passed after a period of time).

• Monitor students as they use Imagine Math. During small group work, position yourself so you can still see student computers.

• Remind students to use their journals and the Live Help.
