Analyzing Student Behavior

I often catch myself wondering why students are not listening to me as opposed to what I can do as a teacher to change this. Students’ behaviors in class can be seen as an indication of whether or not the lesson being taught is engaging and developmentally appropriate. For the fifth installment of my systematic observation series on PHYSEDagogy I will be discussing using event recording to analyze behaviors exhibited by students.
