The following video clip is unedited. I chose a random day on March 14th to record my entire 5th grade class. The video clip shows the beginning of class leading into a guided reading/practice note taking portion of the lesson. This particular advisory section has a wide range of students. Half of the class has testing accomodations. Over the course of the year, with consistent routines and discipline I was able to develop an overall calm working atmosphere. As the video will show, students who in the past may have struggled with maintaining focus and diligence were consistently on task through most of the lesson. I placed the young men who struggled with behavior in the past in the front row of class to keep them involved and on task. The lesson is on a particular aspect of the American Civil War.
