Objective – Students will explore the importance of Classroom Management

* Before class we each will prepare our tables, video, make notes on the board, and any other preparations that need to be made. Lindsey will greet everyone at the door and give them their name tag as they are walking in. The tag will also have a number on it that will let the students know what table to sit at. The tables will have numbers on them for them to match with their tag.
