Domain Two Goal (2a – 2d): 2d Managing Student Behavior
During the 2016 – 2017 school year, as a student teacher, I will manage student’s behavior by 1) setting clear expectations and following through with
them, 2) keeping track of the student’s behavior over the course of the semester, and 3) misdirecting negative behavior. This will be measured through
anecdotal records being kept on individual students.

learning. This will be measured through ensuring all students respond to teacher questions and are able to participate in a discussion for 3 minutes
