Be Seen Looking

Communicate to students that you're a careful observer

Think about what things were like when we were students. When we recognized that a teacher had eyes in the back of her head (i.e., "Radar"), we thought we were clever for figuring it out. In retrospect, we weren’t half as smart as we imagined: the teacher had almost assuredly done things to cause us to notice that she was a good and careful observer. A simple nod in our direction or a tilt of the head might say, “I see what you are doing. You should put that away now, please.” In this training, you'll find out how you can send those subtle messages too.
