If students are often unsettled as they come in, greet them outside of the classroom first to help them get settled before entering the room
Take a moment in the first class for students to teach you cues or signals they use in their class.
For residencies, establish an opening ritual like free writing or drawing to help students transition to class.

While Classroom Management can feel different when you’re facilitating remote learning, most of the information on this page is still applicable. If you would like more specific ideas for planning a remote residency or workshop, we have a GIVE resource: Adaptations for Classroom and Behavior Management.
