I completely agree with your post! I think that prior knowledge is so important because you'll be able to know where the student stands and where you should start teaching.

I agree with the previous posts and I really think that setting your expectations and explaining them to your students before you start is a huge factor in classroom management! The students should know what is expected of them and what should happen if they do not follow their expectations. Also, you might want to have them practice how you want to get their attention before you start as well!

I have found that reading a really interesting book as an engagement for a lesson really works too, especially if the kids are involved with reading the book! Students really latch on to hands-on activities too!
